Choosing a wedding venue is an important decision. Many beautiful locations such as a family home, community garden, a museum, an arboretum, a park, a botanical garden, or an art gallery not to forget the traditional wedding venues like a chapel or church. To reduce the environmental footprint from travel, choose a location that is closest to the majority of guests. The shorter the distance, the less carbon dioxide emitted. Many hotels will offer discounts if your wedding guests stay at their hotel. In addition, supply guests with information on how to carpool, take a train, or taxi. I know that many couples will rent a ‘bus’ for the evening to shuttle residents back and forth between where they are staying (ie hotel) and the venue. This saves on many cars traveling on the same road, but also prevents drinking and driving as well.
