Nowadays, it’s easier than ever to find stationery that’s printed on recycled paper or uses alternative materials, such as vegetable inks.

Seed paper is a biodegradable material that sprouts into flowers when planted in a pot of soil. 

You could go even further and keep printed invitations and other stationery to a minimum. Emailing invites or directing guests to a website can double as a planning tool. It can also host information on accommodation, travel, and your gift list or chosen charities to donate to. 

Reusable chalkboards could be used for any ‘order of service’ or table plans you may want for the day itself.

If you do opt for the conventional route, bear in mind that some stationers might source and print their ranges in other parts of the world where labour conditions may not be considered ethical.
