If a white silk wedding dress is your dream, you can make it come true without troubling your eco-friendly conscience. Andie McGuire makes simple and elegant wedding dresses from wild silk, silk from cocoons gathered from the wild after the moth has emerged which is completely natural and cruelty free. She also uses hemp tencel or raw silk if you prefer.
This Iris Silk Charmeuse design has a smple and elegant line, with boning in the bodice for a perfect fit. It even has hidden pockets to keep that lace handkerchief or lucky charm safe at your side. Fully lined with organic cotton the dress is very comfortable to wear. All Andie’s wedding dresses are custom made for you to your measurements, so you need to allow 2 to 3 months for them to be completed and delivered.
It’s very affordable for a custom made silk wedding dress too, at $575 from Andie McGuire on Etsy.
