Reviews and Commentary

The author, Carol Reed-Jones,
Why I wrote Green Weddings That Don't Cost the Earth:
This book originated when my husband and I were planning our own wedding. We wanted a ceremony and reception that reflected our love of the wilderness and concern for the environment. After searching in vain for books with advice on planning such a wedding, we did our own research instead. We came up with a green wedding that was fun to plan, and truly meaningful for us. This research was the basis of my book.

From Library Journal:
This unique guide features ideas for incorporating recycling and reducing waste into wedding planning. Included are tips on locating "green" suppliers for everything from invitations and wedding rings to vegetarian and vegan caterers and eco-tour honeymoons. Reed-Jones also includes detailed instructions for making many items by hand, such as bouquets, favors, and natural wedding cakes, and offers suggestions for recycling and reusing leftovers. The large bibliography will be useful not only to wedding planners and environmentalists but also to collection development librarians. Recommended for public libraries.-Susan B. Hagloch, Tuscarawas Cty. P.L., New Philadelphia, Ohio.
