Say "I Do" In A Sustainable Wedding Dress🌿

The wedding industry can make planning your big celebration a high-pressured, costly experience. This is why we encourage values-based wedding planning to not only ease your soon-to-be-married mind, but make a positive impact on the world and other people. Planning with sustainability in mind will help you set off on the right foot as you enter this exciting chapter of life! Plus, choosing a made-to-order design with high quality natural fabrics will only result in a dress you wholeheartedly adore. And for those who are less attached to their dresses, secondhand shopping and rental services are an excellent option!
