The eco-friendly wedding dresses of yesteryear were naught more than organic hemp silk sacks, sometimes embellished with a sash of peace silk colored with vegetable dyes. Or at least that’s the way they looked to me, since the companies and designers producing them seldom did much in the way of fitting them to the bridal models they used. Oh, how times have changed.
Check out the Natural Bridal Collection by Morgan Boszilkov on her web site and in her her Etsy store. I know that tight-fitting mini wedding dresses aren’t everyone’s thing — and Lord knows I wouldn’t wear one — but I’m rather fond of Boszilkov’s hemp silk Pixie dress.
All of Boszilkov’s wedding dresses and bridal accessories are handcrafted using luxurious and sustainable fabrics, and 5% of all her profits support environmental charities. I particularly like that some of her wedding dresses are convertible in the sense that the lower part of the skirts are detachable. It’s a great option for the bride who wants a separate reception dress but can’t really afford it, and makes it more likely that she’ll wear her wedding dress again in the future.
