The Little Black Dress will always be a fashion staple but for the summer bride, we love the idea of the Little White Dress! As the wedding day draws near, there are events on top of events that you’ll attend —the bridal shower, the bridesmaid’s tea, the rehearsal dinner, the day after brunch…and the list goes on. A LWD would be perfect for any (or all) of these celebrations, and eco-friendly designer Kirribilla has the sweetest collection of options designed especially for brides.
Get inspired with these looks styled by Weddington Way (where you can find all of these dresses) and view the rest of the collection here…
You are the bride after all. So, it’s perfectly acceptable to go big and bold. Since your accessories are the ideal way to make a statement, let’s start with Emma Read! Emma handcrafts her vintage flower fascinators, accessories, and bouquets for brides from recycled vintage silk, satin, feathers, lace and jewelry.
She’ll even add in some other vintage “treasures” to suit your bridal fancy, so you can work with Emma to dream up accessories that are bold, bespoke, and beautiful.

The spring rains have temporarily left us, so we’re in the mood for some sunshine! Fresh and bright yellow bouquets are perfect for sunshine and summer too. Blended with grey, coral, turquoise or pink, yellow will make your Eco-Beautiful color palette shine. Take a stroll through your local farmers market or your own garden for inspiration!
Last summer, Eva and Trevor held their eco-friendly wedding and reception in New Hampshire at a tree farm. The naturally-beautiful setting (complete with a lovely pond) didn’t need much décor, so the couple accented the ceremony and reception with lush florals and a few vintage items, including family portraits.
The bride chose to wear her grandmother’s wedding dress for their traditional Jewish ceremony, and the couple added to the wedding’s vintage flair with assorted plates and napkins borrowed from each of their families.
If you remember our sneak peek of this wedding from yesterday, you’ll recall there were some gorgeous flowers featured. Well those were actually hand created for the wedding cake…by the bride! Eva is a professional cake designer (obviously an amazingly talented one!) and she opted to design the wedding cake for her day.
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Eva and Trevor!

The wedding cake is often the centerpiece of the reception, so why not make it a work of art? Hand-painted wedding cakes were all the rage during last year’s wedding season, but far from trendy, these beauties are thankfully here to stay.
When it comes to your wedding cake design, the sky’s the limit. Your family’s heirloom china pattern, the bouquet of flowers your fiancé proposed with…almost anything can be inspiration. Take a chance on a design that’s unique and creative!
