Wedding Shoes for Brides and Grooms

If you're vegetarian or vegan and can't bear the thought of wearing leather shoes for your wedding there are now some a fabulous stylish and ethical shoes on the market.

Go antique and use your grandmother's veil. If you're buying new, you'll have to settle with dilemma of silk tulle vs nylon with your own conscience.

Borrow a vintage handbag from your Mum or beg one from a friend (the same goes for ties and tie clips from family and friends!). There are also some really creative designers producing beautiful one off handbags.
