Sure! I’m happy to recommend caterers, invitation designers, photographers, etc. that I’ve enjoyed working with, and share Pollen’s interest in greener weddings! Putting together a little directory of other green wedding vendors that I know seemed like a simple idea. After talking with the folks at Spilled Ink Press, we realized that this simple idea has a lot more potential.
And the Chicago Green Wedding Alliance was born! The CGWA is a group of like-minded vendors who are working to encourage more mindful weddings and commitment ceremonies. We’re putting together a directory and a website, planning a workshop on greener weddings, and planning a green wedding show/tour.
The CGWA has a core group of very involved founding members. Our first task has been to figure out how to vet candidates for membership. Until we finalize that procedure, let me direct you to the people who have been actively involved with founding the group.
