About Recycled Bride
- The Ultimate Sustainable Wedding Dress Hot List Countdown -
have gone green, and every season a new crop of designers showcase great wedding gowns in Earth-friendly fabrics. In preparation for bridal market, when we'll see lots of fabulous new eco-chic
wedding dresses hitting the runway, here's a countdown of five of my all-time favorite green wedding dresses.
5. The Drew Kimono Sleevesilk
crepe column gown by LoveJune
is a sophisticated contemporary classic. Handmade from LoveJune's original patterns using their signature “no-waste” pattern method, this dress
is an elegant and Earth-conscious choice.
4. Adele Wechsler's Eco-Couture collection
is made from organic design elements, hand-crafted in Canada, and created from eco-friendly fabrics. The Cassia wedding dress
is a whimsical, beautiful creation that would suit a casual beach bride or a more formal affair. Its floral applique
and flattering neckline make it one of the prettiest dresses we've seen anywhere!
3. This flowing, strapless wedding dress
is a classic choice for the romantic bride
. Naturally dyed and crafted primarily from rare Ahimsa peace silk (in which fiber is spun from cocoons from caterpillars that are allowed to complete their life-cycles and emerge as moths), all of Puridee's designs are crafted by owner Lindee Daniel to bring out the natural beauty of the bride on her day.
2. Threadhead's Grace dress
is pure, simple elegance. The Grace wedding dress
features a scoop bodice with an open back and beautiful criss-crossing straps in the back. The dress is made of floral-patterned hemp that's grown without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers, and blended with wild peace silk (cocoons are harvested only after moths have emerged).
1. We've reached the end of the countdown!So what's my favorite eco-chic wedding dress of all time?
It's Puridee's absolutely stunning indigo blue Rebecca gown
, made from extremely rare Tussah silk fibers hand-dyed by a sustainable micro-business run by women in El Salvador. This dress is perfect for the bold, unique bride who's not afraid to make a statement. I've seen this dress in person and can assure you that the silk's color and texture are just exquisite, ensuring oohs and aahs from your guests
and a day you'll never forget.
