Wedding Dresses

Calling all eco chic brides to think outside the box!

Have your wedding dress made-to-measure by a local dressmaker, wear a family heirloom, or a reworked vintage creation. Hire a gorgeous gown, buy a once used, much loved dress or even make a swap with a newly married bride.

Finding a beautiful wedding dress is at the top of every bride's wish list, but beautiful needn't mean expensive and wedding needn't mean dress.

There will be a talented dress maker living close to you who can create a beautiful made-to-measure wedding gown tailored especially for you using organic and natural fabrics. Some may offer a couture collection to choose from, others will work to your own design. You can find talented and affordable wedding dress designers and makers in our wedding directory.

A great idea to show your individuality and know you won't see any other bride in the same dress is to wear vintage. Try the vintage collections listed in our supplier finder or check out online auction sites where beautiful dresses can be found in the vintage section. Think of having an antique wedding dress (or your mother's or another relative's dress) updated or modified to suit you, by a family member or a dress maker.

A little tip - if you go vintage - is to wear modern shoes which will bring your look waaay up to date.

How about donating your dress to a charity shop, after your wedding, for another bride to enjoy? The money raised will bring someone less fortunate a little happiness.
