Paper Couture

Your wedding dress.  Creative?  One-of-a-Kind? Paper?

These creative dresses all fit the bill, and even if they’re a bit too fashion forward for you, these creations are certainly fun to gaze at.

But, if you do choose to go the paper route (pardon the pun), please don’t forget to recycle!

Real Weddings: Heather + Steve

Real Wedding Steve Heather Outdoor Weddings California Eco Friendly Weddings Green Weddings Eco Beautiful Weddings Magazine

Steve and Heather didn’t want a huge, fancy to-do wedding.  They threw most of the traditions, like not peeking at each other before the ceremony, to the wind, and just gathered the people they loved in a charming garden.  Amid strung flags and lights, the couple stood within a semi-circle of their guests, who cheered while they exchanged vows and rings. From there, it was good food, laughter and Scottish dance lessons.

This was very much a wedding rich with only the things and customs and people that really meant something to the couple.  Every piece of jewelry Heather wore had a significance and history—a connection to people of importance in her life, and almost everything used in the wedding was handmade or made by friends or family.
