This boggles my mind. A wedding professional in a city I shall not name contacted me a few weeks ago about a job. It was for an eco-friendly/green wedding and reception. The bride and groom wanted everyone to have something special to take home.
They wanted each guest to have as their placecard on the table, a ROCK at each place setting. Not just ordinary rocks, but PERSONALIZED rocks.
So, I bought the bags of river rocks, brought them home, had to sort through and find 164 acceptable ones, WASH THEM, and letter them.
Guess how much it cost to ship them back to the reception?
So much for conserving their "carbon footprint."
People, I am not kidding, I am so over working in this industry. If I'm now working on rocks, we have hit a new low. Sand dollars, I can see. Beautiful, elegant, delicate.
