Inspiration - No Plastic, No Paper, All-Organic Millet Feasts: Pondy Couple Sets #WeddingGoals!





Many of us are familiar with the concept of a big fat Indian wedding.They comprise loud music, extravagant decor, lavish meals, and expensive attires, all of which serve to depict the prosperity of the families coming together.While on one hand, this trend continues to exist, there is another fast-growing group of couples who have begun to see through the shiny veil.For them, it is not about how big a wedding is, but how unusual and meaningful it can be.Keeping this in mind, a couple in Puducherry decided to set the wheels in reverse, and return to their roots.


A simple ceremony with a lasting impact is what this couple had in mind, so they decided to go green and ensure that their wedding in January 2019 would be completely eco-friendly.

“Food is one of the most important parts of a wedding. Keeping the menu traditional, they experimented with healthier alternatives like healthy rice varieties, and millets.

To eliminate the use of plastic and paper, the food and drinks were served in plates made of leaves and ever silver (stainless steel) tumblers, respectively. Even for invitations, the minimal use of paper was promoted.

“We introduced e-invites for friends, and minimal paper invites for the elders, which explained the nature of the wedding. The couple’s wedding invitation also encouraged guests to donate for a more significant cause, instead of giving them gifts.

“We solicit your presence more than your present (gifts). We would urge you to donate for a cause to ForestFirstSamithi.org for planting trees in the Western Ghats which is the source of rivers for South India on our behalf,” the invitation stated.

This couple set a truly positive precedent by marrying for their family, themselves, and the environment, making it a memorable experience.
