Green Wedding Dress

I think if Billy Idol had made his "white wedding" song during 2008, it would have actually been a nice day for a green wedding! There are so many more choices now then ever before to make your eco wedding dreams come true, and this beautiful eco bridal collection by Tara Lynn has me totally floored. I am a sucker for embroidery & color of any kind, splashed onto the traditional wedding gown- it is a fantastic statement that goes beyond fashion. It's art.
"Since 1999, Tara Lynn has been designing custom eco wedding gowns. Tara Lynn’s bridal gowns are made of silk, cotton, bamboo and hemp blends that look and feel luxurious. Tara Lynn will create a custom bridal gown especially for you. It can be simple, traditional or embellished with Tara Lynn’s unique artwork. In order to get the most out of your investment and the earth’s resources, Tara Lynn can design your eco wedding dress so it can be worn for another special occasion."
I love when a wedding dress designer offers to make the dress into something that can actually be worn again- rather then drowning the bridal gown in freaky chems, shoved in an heirloom box, to forever turn yellow and smell so nasty no one wants to wear it again. Upcycling rocks. And so does Tara Lynn's designs.

Hmmm...might have to look into this. I am hell-bent on getting a vintage gown for my wedding, but I had a completely fruitless search in NYC last week. The good ones are all on the Internets, it seems.

Hey Colleen!
Looking in New York seems like it would be exhausting... maybe better luck would be with someone who custom designs something eco - I would have to do it that way. Upcycle and vintage would rock too, i suppose you have worn out ebay? What if someone took a vintage gown and custom upcycled for you? (all these eco wrods are getting to be tongue twisters!!)
