Tuesday's Tip: What's on the Menu?

Today's tip is all about food. And for many of you brides, the food served at your wedding is more than just food. It may represent cultural connections between you and your husband-to-be or perhaps it has a special significance, such as what you both ate on your very first date. Whatever the case may be, you can still follow your heart's desire for your wedding menu and be green at the same time. The easiest way to do this is search out venue's or caterer's that specialize in organic meals. This probably won't be that difficult if your wedding is in a big city. But if your wedding is rural, don't be discouraged! At the very least, you might be able to provide guests with some locally grown organic fruits or nuts, which always taste delicious! Not to mention that by hiring an organic caterer or buying locally, you're not only eating better, you're also supporting the organic movement as a whole. Now, if you've read all this and you're thinking, "Wow, sounds great! But what exactly does organic mean," then have no fear! In an organic nutshell, organic foods are grown or produced without the use of toxic pesticides or herbicides, antibiotics, synthetic hormones, genetic engineering, and really gross stuff such as sewage sludge, which is wrong for any farmer but you never know. For more detailed information, I suggest checking out the Organic Trade Association's website here. Who knows, you might convert a few of your guests over to the Organic side.
