1. Wear vintage!
Not only will you be super-stylish this summer in a lacy frock from yesteryear, but you’ll also be re-using material that would have otherwise been made new. Find a used wedding dress and ask a seamstress to fit it and to add elements that reflect your personal style. This can make for a one of a kind dress that still meets your goal of “less impact”. Wedding rings made from re-purposed family jewelry is another way to start your marriage sustainably. Another bonus in using family heirlooms for your wedding attire is that it will connect you to a story that started long before your special day. Whether its layers, lace, beads, diamonds, or silk – make it authentically yours. Some call it upcycling, re-purposing, or just plain vintage!
