The Adventures of Miss and Mr. Olive

Krista, who works for CancerCare - a non-profit that provides support and education for people living with cancer, and her fiancé Sam are planning a green wedding in Northern California (one of my favorite places on earth) next October. Like Lisa and Andy, featured last week, Krista and Sam also chose 100% PCW paper invitations from the Invitesite.com.

You can see step by step photos of her invitation assembly on her blog "A Green Wedding Adventure: Eco-Friendly in Disguise," where she writes using the whimsical moniker "Miss Olive" - inspired by the groves of olive trees where she is getting married and the "very Greek neighborhood" she lives in in New York. On her site, Krista explains why she chose the "Angelica"design above:

"What makes these invites eco-friendly? 1. All paper (invite, envelopes, RSVP, info card, thank you cards) made entirely from tree free paper and 100% post consumer recycled paper. 2. Purchased from small, California based store. 3. RSVP postcard [pictured below] saves paper (and money) from the standard RSVP set of an envelope/reply card. 4. One double-sided insert with basic information and our wedding website. We did not include extras such as a map, reception card, etc. since all of that information is on our website." She even offers the financial run down for complete disclosure (grand total $271.75 including thank you notes/envelopes and additional cardstock - not bad at all!). I look forward to watching Miss Olive's (or should I say the soon-to-be Mrs. Olive's) wedding planning adventures unfold. Bookmark her website and check back for updates on her inspiring eco-friendly affair.
