The long planning process is almost to an end... I can hardly believe it. My fellow Chicago Green Wedding Alliance members and Tony and myself have come a long way (baby). The Green Wedding Alliance is a group we had a hand in starting 2 years ago when we realized our priorities with our lil' ol' Spilled Ink Press needed to be as eco-responsible as we could possibly make them. We started reaching out to other eco-savvy businesses in Chicago and discovered low and behold, we were all searching for the same thing: alliance. Perhaps more importantly, we were all looking for a vehicle to get the word out about greener weddings.
So from discussions over a few beers with our friend Lynn at Pollen... cut to 30 + members... cut to a whole lot of planning later.... we welcome you to join us at Committed, Chicago's first exclusively green wedding show.
This show is for couples who are committed-- committed to each other (obviously!), committed to the environment, committed to throwing the bast damn party of their lives. Because really, that's what a wedding is- you and someone you couldn't love more, coming together with friends and family to eat, drink, and boogie down. Love is love, we're big fans, it's worth throwing a party for!
Because it's such a big deal, you'll be spending time and money on this party- choosing your vendors that will walk this journey with you is equally as big. Committed will showcase Chicago Green Wedding Alliance members- the best of the best in Chicago; come and taste their treats, touch our paper, smell the flowers, look at the amazing photographs, all for yourself, all in one beautiful room at the Greenhouse Loft.
Tickets are still available here. Peruse the vendors here.
Sunday, February 26th
2545 W Diversey (in the Green Exchange Building)
