Designers such as Tara Lynn and Armour Sans Anguish specialize in creating gorgeous gowns from recycled fabric scraps, embellished hemp and sustainable materials.

A great option for bridesmaid dresses are infinity gowns, which can be tied differently in an infinite number of ways to create a unique, yet unified style throughout the bridesmaid party. Infinity gowns are acclaimed for their ability to be worn and re-worn countless times and ways.

Reuse your Jewels!  Vintage finds, reclaimed metals or even borrowed gems are great options for both bride and bridesmaids.  Find that perfect piece at  a local shop or from handmade vendors!
