18 Sustainable Wedding Dresses For Your Eco-Friendly Wedding

Eco-Friendly weddings are becoming increasingly popular as couples become more environmentally conscious.

If you are a bride who is looking to plan a more ethical, green wedding, then you are going to need the perfect wedding dress. That means a wedding dress that is sustainably and ethically made. The MOST eco-conscious choice you can make as a bride is to opt for a pre-loved or vintage wedding dress, like those you can find on websites like Still White. This interrupts the wasteful cycle of fashion, since you are going with a dress that already exists. But if you are looking into new dresses, then there are many eco-friendly bridal designers out there who focus on creating sustainable and ethical bridal gowns. We know that trying to make more eco-conscious decisions when you are already busy wedding planning can be overwhelming. So we have created a list of our favorite 18 sustainable wedding dresses, so that you can plan a more eco-friendly wedding, without wasting too much time!
