Eco-Fab wedding ideas, sales and more

If you are thinking of using a candle in the rest room of your reception site, why not choose one that is not only fragrant, but 100% soy wax that burns soot free?

Sweet Grass Farm Soy Wax Candles have some amazing sents and you can even use most of them to match your wedding theme: Outdoors use: New England Woods or Citrus Blossom. Something clean for a sea side/beach wedding try: Fresh White Lilac, Costal Bayberry or Green Tea. Remember you don’t want something that’s going to be overpowering and definitely not too powdery (esp. in the men’s room). The best thing, once the night is over, you will have at least 2 wonderful candles that you can continue to burn back in your new home.

To purchase Sweet Grass Farm Soy Wax Candles, please visit
