How can I minimise wastage at my wedding?
There are many ways to do this, but we will share three.
First, reuse your decorations wherever possible. If you are holding a full-day wedding celebration, reuse some of the decoration from your day celebration at your evening reception. For example, church pew flowers can be used as table centrepieces at your lunch buffet, or the floral wreath that was used to decorate your wedding car can be used as decor for your bridal chairs.
Next, do your bit to counter Singapore’s growing food waste problem. Very often, at a typical nine-course Chinese banquet, guests are too full to stomach any more food after the sixth course. So, don’t worry about appearing less-than-generous by reducing the number of courses at your reception in order to cut wastage. Most guests will appreciate quality over quantity.
Finally, recycling items can be an innovative way to give your wedding a personal touch. For example, you could convert unwanted bottles and tin cans into vases for your reception or cocktail tables.
