The traditional white ‘meringue’ wedding dress isn’t the beginning and end of wedding dress possibilities. An expensive dress that you will only wear once isn’t the greenest of choices and unless you have your heart set on a traditional white wedding, there are plenty of other options that you can consider.
In the mid-19th century, black was the ultra fashionable color for wedding dresses. Today some brides are bucking the trend and choosing the elegance of the little black dress for their wedding day. A black dress has the advantage of being very versatile for evening wear, so that your wedding dress can be worn again and again to smart functions and events, unlike a white wedding dress which cannot really be disguised as anything else.
If you’ve been lusting after a gorgeous designer dress or suit, splash out on that instead of a traditional wedding dress. You’ll be able to look stunning at your wedding and then enjoy wearing it many more times before it loses its appeal.
A white pant suit could be a glamorous but informal alternative to a wedding dress, or go for the color that suits you best. After all the wedding day belongs to the bride and she gets to decide the theme, so whatever you decide on is going to be right. Just choose a dress or outfit that makes you feel really special and that you can imagine wearing again for special occasions.
After all green and eco-friendly choices for your wedding dress aren’t only to do with natural fabrics. Re-using is just as important in a green lifestyle as recycling and socially conscious shopping choices. By choosing a non-traditional wedding dress or outfit that you will re-use, you will be doing your bit for the environment.
