Greener Services

Options for planning your event without compromising your sustainable philosophies.

By their very nature, weddings, parties and special celebrations are a source of left overs and waste. Extra food, paper goods, and the resources used for travel to the event all contribute to the carbon footprint your celebration has created.

It can be a challenge to balance the effort to conserve resources while hosting an event that is all you envision. We understand that going green, especially for a special occasion celebration, may not be practical, but every little bit helps. We have members who understand your desire go green and have the experience to help you incorporate resource conserving techniques into your celebration.

Check back as we add more members who have joined the Green Bride Brigade!


Greener Bakers & Wedding Cakes


Isn't it wonderful that the greener and sustainability movements have gained enough momentum that even a baker can cost-effectively source ingredients and practices to offer vegan, gluten-free, lactose-free and humanely-produced products? We congratulate Marneycakes on making delicious, gorgeous and sustainably sourced wedding and celebration cakes that are a perfect finale for any celebration. There will be no sacrifice in flavor, quality or service. When you serve a slice of Marneycakes, you can be sure that your guests will leave with the sweet taste of the party still dancing in their heads…and also impressed that a sustainably sourced product can achieve this level of quality. If you are a Green Bride, Marneycakes is the baker for you! Contact her now to arrange a tasting.

Greener Photographer

Vivid Visions Photo-Graphics

Vivid Visions Photo-Graphics is the first photography studio on Long Island to earn the Greener Photography Premier designation. Photography is fraught with environmental issues most particularly related to the chemicals used in developing and printing the images. But, from the less wasteful practices of the studio and office, to the Green Strategy posted on the website, Vivid Visions Photo-Graphics puts into practice the well-worn but still very relevant "reduce, reuse, recycle."
