THE Dress

Finding a beautiful wedding dress is often high on a bride's wish list, but beautiful needn't mean expensive, or unethical.

There are plenty of options for sourcing your dream wedding dress, and here's a run-down of some of them. 

1. Have your wedding dress made-to-measure by a local dressmaker, who can create a beautiful bespoke wedding gown using organic and natural fabrics.

2. Wear a family heirloom, or a reworked vintage creation.

3. Hire a gorgeous gown.

4. Buy a once-used, much loved dress from one of the many online auction or listing sites. Just remember to buy one size bigger than you would usually wear to allow for necessary alterations to your own body shape.

5. Buy from an ethical boutique, who specialises in stocking collections from designers with eco-ethical credentials.
