These Wonderful Gown wedding shower invitations are printed on 100% recycled paper and are the perfect way to announce the shower for your eco-friendly wedding. Colors and fonts are customizable.

 

Forever Fiances' signature paper is handmade from 100% post consumer waste paper - the paper we put in the blue bin. Their signature paper is also embedded with wildflower seeds so you and your guests can plant it and grow wildflowers! It is made with carbon neutral energy so these are some of the greenest invitations available. Forever Fiances has pledged to give 1% of its revenues to several non-profit organizations supporting environmental causes.
