And as you will see, having an eco-conscious wedding doesn’t mean you have to compromise your style and personality.

After the ring is slipped on, one of the first things a bride-to-be thinks about is what she’s going to wear down the aisle. And when you have a specific vision of how it will look, finding the perfect dress can take some time and effort. Just ask Kate, our featured bride for May. “I was looking for a design with floral appliqué and lace. An open back was important as well.
