What does an Eco-Beautiful bride do after she’s found the PERFECT eco dress for own wedding? She wears it, loves it and then opens a boutique to help other brides do the same!
Blue Sky Bridal owner Jen was that Eco-Beautiful bride in 2007, and now she and a dedicated staff of lovelies work with brides-to-be in the Seattle area to find the dress of their dreams. Their collection of gorgeous pre-owned wedding gowns include options in a variety of silhouettes, shades and sizes. The dresses are all impeccable, so you won’t sacrifice quality or style, but you will help the environment and the local community by buying eco.

You don’t have to sacrifice quality or luxury to be green! Gwendolyn-Mary, a new luxury brand, has launched its first fragrance and candle line, and we must say it’s absolutely delightful! Their soy candles and perfume oils are made from the finest elements, derived from raw materials collected from around the world. The ingredients are all natural and alcohol-free, and all of the products are hand poured in the USA.
The PAVANE fragrance collection features three unique scents that represent the fragrance equivalent of select pieces of classical music, a nod to creator Kathleen Laccinole’s background as a classically trained pianist. PAVANE No. 2 is a bridal scent, inspired by Mendelssohn’s “Wedding March”. A blend of water lily, sacred Moroccan red rose, and stargazer lily notes, this floral scent has become huge hit as a signature wedding fragrance.
The fragrances and candles would make beautiful bridesmaid gifts, and add a romantic touch to your wedding décor, too!
