Is it possible to have an environmentally-conscious event without breaking the bank?

The most common piece of advice I’ve read in wedding books and magazines is to make a list of priorities, so we know what’s important to each other in a wedding. Being the social creatures that we are, we know we want to be surrounded by family and friends,  have an open bar, and a live band.
