An Irish Wedding Theme

Posted on March 17th, 2011 by Mandy Webster

Top o’ the mornin’ to ya! It’s St. Patrick’s Day, and I thought it would be fun to start the day with a post about the Irish wedding theme. Whether you’re planning a St. Patty’s Day wedding, are proud of your Irish heritage, or simply love that Emerald Isle shade of green, Irish eyes will be smiling upon this green wedding theme.

I love this green themed wedding inspiration board from Magnet Street Weddings. The green and ivory ribbon intertwined with the green flowers of the groom’s corsage just shout Irish to me. And I love the bride’s bouquet, the cake, the table settings… heck, I love it all!

“Green” Wedding Ideas: Flowers

Posted on February 10th, 2011 by Mandy Webster

These days, ‘green’ is in. No, I’m not talking about the color green. I’m talking eco-friendly. And, it probably wouldn’t occur to most of us that our wedding flowers may not be that green. Unfortunately, those mountains of tulips and roses found at so many modern weddings are often bad for more than just the environment.

Do you know where your beautiful wedding flowers come from?

In many cases, they are cultivated through the use of child labor. Laborers are often exposed to high levels of toxins, and the end result may be a beautiful wedding that is toxic to your wedding guests as well. Many flowers growers also create a vast carbon footprint in the cultivation of their products. Read more »

Product Review: Personalized Aluminum Water Bottles

Posted on December 28th, 2010 by Mandy Webster

BPA Free Water Bottle in Apple GreenThe latest fad in ‘going green’ is the BPA free water bottles you’ve likely seen everyone running around with lately. They’re great for the gym or just for bringing a drink of water along with you on your post holiday shopping sprees. I’ve been meaning to pick one up for a while, so I was really excited yesterday when I opened a package from Billie-Jo Brusveen, founder of Knot The Groom, and found my very own personalized aluminum water bottle inside.

My aluminum water bottle came in apple green with my name printed along the side. They also come in aqua, black and fuchsia. Get your aluminum water bottles at Knot The Groom, and you’ll get free personalization as well!

These BPA free water bottles come with an easily removable, threaded carabiner key ring top. I love the little metal clip on the top of the bottle. It will be great to clip it onto my book bag so I can easily bring a bottle of water to class with me along with all of my other junk that I tend to drag around at school with me. (I’m a graduate student in the professional writing program at Mount Mary College, which is also Billie-Jo’s alma mater.)

Reusable water bottles such as these are great for the environment, as they create less waste than those plastic water bottles we’re so used to throwing out as soon as we’re done with them. And aluminum water bottles are BPA free, which is healthier for you as well as for the Earth.
