Inspired by the vintage garters worn by flappers in the 1920’s, the handmade garters from Etsy seller Previously are true gems. The designer uses 100% silks and taffeta ribbon embellishments to create these one-of-a-kind creations for Eco-Beautiful brides across the country and the world.
And to ensure you’re stylish from head to toe, you can choose a gift set with matching bobby pins. Or, opt for a matching handkerchief for your groom! Love it!
Watching the runways of New York Fashion Week has been a blast, and it was wonderful to see a bit of bridal inspiration even in the ready to wear collections. It was definitely all about bold colors and prints, but many designers, including Ralph Lauren, infused their collections with a bit of bright white, offering a perfect contrast.
Great looks for next summer’s bride!
Bye bye Fashion Week! Now it’s time to get ready for October’s Bridal Market, one of our most fave times of the year!
Jennifer and John chose an eco space for their wedding last fall— the Lord Jeffery Inn in Amhers, Massachusetts. The recently renovated space features CO2 fresh air activated systems, a geothermal ground source heating and cooling system and keeps its gardens and lawns nourished using water-efficient methods.
The couple didn’t want to overwhelm the venue with extras, but instead kept their décor simple for the intimate celebration. The beauty and character of building and grounds was just enough…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Jennifer and John!

We continue to be enthralled with the runways at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week!
American designer Christian Siriano (of Project Runway fame) bought lots of color and chiffon to his Spring 2014 presentation. Inspired by a recent Mexican vacation, and specifically the local female basket weavers and merchants in Isla Mujeres, Christian infused his collection with neons and basket-inspired raffia.
All of the flowing chiffon has us thinking of eco-elopements on the beach!
