How can I min­imise wastage at my wed­ding?

Singapore Tatler Wedding - - ASK THE EXPERT -

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-thangen­er­ous 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.
