LONDON (Reuters) - Here comes the bride, all dressed in -- green.
White weddings might have been the dream of fashionable brides of old. But the trendiest British weddings are now at least metaphorically green as couples seek to reduce the impact of their nuptials on the environment.
That means everything from recycled wedding dresses and guests arriving by bicycle, to home-grown flowers and locally produced food for the wedding buffet.
"A year ago there was nothing green at wedding shows. I was really struggling to get the message across that green weddings are about "eco-chic", not lentils and hessian," said green wedding planner Ruth Culver.
"Now specialist venues, products and services are being launched every week."
British celebrity Liz Hurley might have hoped to set new fashion standards with her lavish jetset wedding last month.
