An up and coming trend with many brides and grooms is a “green wedding”. The idea behind green weddings is to decrease the environmental impact that the event will have on the planet. Brides and grooms can make decisions in their wedding planning process that can make their wedding green without sacrificing elegance or fun! www.GreenBrideGuide.com has many tips to help couples make earth-conscious decisions while planning their big day!
Read below some facts from Green Bride Guide’s website regarding a green wedding:
“Transportation The EPA estimates that cars, trucks, and buses are the leading producers of air pollution, yet about 75% of couples travel to and from their wedding in a limousine. Holding your ceremony and reception at the same venue, or close by one another is one way to limit travel for your guests. If possible, make this a centralized location so that most of your friends and family will not have to travel far. Carpooling, renting an alternative energy bus or trolley, or talking public transit if available will not only make things easier for your guests, but it will also get them to and from your celebration while minimizing emissions.
Favors Favors for all your guests can cost you hundreds of dollars, and often wedding favors are small trinkets destined for the trash can. Making a small donation for each guest to a cause that is important to you is a thoughtful alternative to a tangible, potentially wasteful favor. If you are set on giving a small gift, there are tons of non-wasteful favor ideas like edibles, small potted plants, seedlings or soy candles that will echo the values behind your wedding.
Invitations Throughout the wedding planning cycle, paper is used for save-the-dates, invitations, RSVP cards, seating programs, menu cards, seating cards, thank you cards, and more. Traditional papermaking is an energy-intensive process that creates a large amount of waste and uses harsh chemicals such as bleach. Recycled and post-consumer waste paper, tree-free paper, soy inks, and digital correspondence options all offer beautiful and elegant ways to reduce resource consumption. Many modern couples are finding ways to simply cut down the use of paper in their invitation suites. Instead of including separate papers for reception cards and maps and directions to the wedding, house all pertinent information on a wedding website. A number of chic invitation companies are now creating one-page invitations with a detachable response card. Most couples find the middle ground that best suits their style and their guests’ needs.” Green Bride Guide FAQ

Now that you’ve picked your picked your venue, made your guest list and selected your caterer (hint hint!) it’s time to start thinking about event décor! Websites like www.Pinterest.com, lover.ly, WeddingGawker.com and www.stylemepretty.com/ have made brainstorming and planning a cinch. Once you have a general theme in mind, you can log-on and start searching! All you have to do is type in keywords such as “garden party”, “winter wonderland” or WHATEVER your theme is and you can start digging through all the pins! If you don’t have a theme in mind, you can just search “tablescapes” or “table centerpieces” and you’ll get THOUSANDS of ideas to start with. Once you see something you like, you can refine your search and design exactly what you want.

Awesome Wedding day!
“We just wanted to say THANK YOU! times fifty for all Eggwhites did to help make our Bonnet House wedding such a spectacular event! The weather may have been a bit dreary, but every other detail couldn’t have been more perfect. You made our wedding planning much easier with your help in finding so many of our vendors (band, ceremony music, transportation, day of coordination, lighting, etc) who all happened to be top notch and very accommodating to work with. Thanks to you for always being available when we needed you and giving your honest opinion and most important – thank you for not letting me lose my mind . The “stress” of planning a wedding was made much less stressful with all Eggwhites did for us. Our guests are still raving about how great the food, the band, the Bonnet House and the wedding was! Thank you Eggwhites!”
- Leaa & Eric (Ceremony and Reception at The Bonnet House)
Above and Beyond
“We can’t thank Lindy and Eggwhites enough for everything they did to make our wedding day so perfect. Lindy went above and beyond to help us plan and achieve the wedding we dreamed of! Eggwhites did a fantastic job and we had so many compliments on the absolutely incredible food, service and décor! For a wedding that is so personalized and unique, reflecting everything about you, Eggwhites is without a doubt the way to go. Every part of our experience was taken care of with great detail, professionalism with no request being too large or too small. We loved working with Eggwhites and wish we could do it all over again!”
- Igor & Kate (Reception at The Miami Beach Botanical Gardens)
Unparalleled Service and Professionalism
“Working with Eggwhites was a dream! While most of South Florida suffers from less-than-stellar customer service, Eggwhites really shined, far above and beyond any company I’ve worked with thus far! The food was outstanding of course (but what else should we expect from a professional catering company, right?!) but it was their service and professionalism that really stood out to us. We felt like we were in good hands with Eggwhites from the very beginning! Lindy was fantastic and always available for even the smallest of questions, which we brides really appreciate the closer the big day gets and the more and more nervous we get!! Eggwhites’ execution on the big day was flawless; every single one of their servers and bar tenders was polite, courteous, and professional. And Eggwhites was extremely accommodating for any little details that we wanted to include. If you want a flawlessly executed event, Eggwhites needs to be a part of your Wedding A-Team!”
- Heather & Axel (Ceremony at The Ancient Spanish Monastery)

This summer Eggwhites had the pleasure of catering Univision Network’s Lunch Rally for 800 guests in celebration of Women and Hispanic culture. The event took place in Univision’s enormous television studio in Doral, Florida. We were honored to have the opportunity to cater this exciting Univision event.
Eggwhites wowed Univision guests with a creative variety of interactive food stations. Guests had the opportunity to visit stations serving International Breads and Imported Cheeses, an array of Gourmet Sliders, and the Americas Fry Station including North American favorites such as French Fries and Onion Rings, as well as South American favorites like Empanadas and Croquettas. Among these stations the Interactive Cuban Tostone station seemed to be the biggest crowd pleaser. Univision guests had the option of topping Tostones with island Spiced Baby Shrimp, Chicken and Pork Carnitas and Spicy Picadillo!

Summer is in Full Sail!
It’s almost summer time! That means barbeques, trips to the beach and, our personal favorite, venturing out into South Florida’s pristine waters.
Chef Gary Lampner and the Eggwhites crew have already had the pleasure of catering numerous nautical themed adventures this year. From birthday celebrations and dinners for Cleveland Clinic donors to corporate celebrations for Super Yacht and Leopard Catamaran, we love stretching out our sea legs.
Want to host an event out on the water but don’t know where to begin? Whether you own a yacht or are renting one, we are happy to work with the existing crew to do something extra special! We can coordinate everything for you from yacht rental, nautical themed décor and sea-worthy wait staff to, of course, your delicious cuisine and beverage.
If you would rather stay on shore, there are many fabulous venues we have the pleasure of working with. We would be happy to help coordinate the whole event, from a more traditional affair to clam bakes, upscale barbeques, a s’mores station and more!
Book your 2012 summer event by June 15th and receive a complimentary welcome cocktail such as a Watermelon Margarita (click for recipe) or passed sorbet shots for a refreshing end to your event.

Every year we have the honor of producing weddings at premier venues in South Florida including Vizcaya, The Bonnet House, Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, Deering Estate, The Moore Building, Thalatta Estate,
The Ancient Spanish Monastery, and more!
When it comes to these once in a lifetime occasions, no detail is overlooked, from mad libs written about the bride and groom to personalized favors like Hershey bars and koozies for guests. Our brides even customize their menu selections to reflect their tastes, such as gourmet sliders at a Vizcaya wedding or fun stations like ‘NY vs Chicago Hot Dogs’ to add an element of comfort to an otherwise formal wedding. From the soft and romantic to the dramatic and bold, each wedding is unique and personalized to reflect the character of the couple.
