Making more sustainable choices is something many couples are now considering in their wedding planning. With this in mind, more and more couples are requesting sustainable wedding invitations and are delighted to discover they don’t have to compromise on style.
All LouPaper wedding stationery is created bespoke for your wedding and therefore options for printing are available, making your dream sustainable wedding invitations possible. Eco- friendly wedding stationery
All my wedding stationery is created at my studio at home, meaning I can avoid any materials which cannot be recycled. This is possible across your full wedding stationery suite including RSVP cards, wedding menus and table names, as well as packaging.

Eco friendly wedding stationery means your wedding invitations are made from recycled paper or sustainable, responsibly sourced or organic materials. I’m proud to work with print suppliers who offer responsibly sourced and 100% recycled paper. One supplier has paper made out of by- products from citrus fruits and other raw materials saved from landfill. This one is becoming a more popular choice with clients!
Handmade paper wedding invitations
I also offer handmade paper as an option. Handmade paper wedding invitations are crafted from recycled or reused raw materials such as plant fibres, corn, flax and coffee. This paper is more environmentally friendly as no trees are cut, energy wasted or toxic chemicals used in its manufacture. It also gives a wonderful rustic, tactile finish to each invitation as every sheet of paper is truly unique.

Eco- friendly on the day signage
As well as your stationery, consider eco-friendly options for your on the day signage. There’s an option to use Greencast Perspex which is produced using recycled acrylic. It’s perfect to use for your order of the day sign which lets guests know what is happening and when. Handwritten calligraphy onto Perspex gives a contemporary feel to your big day too.

Eco- friendly wedding ideas
Beyond the wedding stationery and signage, combine your love with a love of our planet by making other eco-friendly conscious choices when planning your big day such as;
· Sourcing local suppliers for catering to minimise travelling
· Working with a florist who grows their own flowers
· Donating to a charity instead of wedding favours for guests
