Be it on the wedding aisle or the red carpet, we love it when eco-fashion makes a glamourous appearance! Actresses Helen Hunt and Naomie Harris both opted for green gowns at the recent Oscars. Helen’s beautiful blue gown was actually from a H&M collection, while Naomie’s gold gown was an original design by art student Michael Badger. The designer used organic silk crepe and dyes made from chamomile and goldenrod. The dress was adorned with vintage glass beads, recycled zippers and candy wrappers!
Both of these silhouettes would make lovely wedding gowns in traditional white, ivory or blush. But for the bold bride, why not hit the aisle in the colored versions?

With snow coming down and spring right around the corner, we’re thinking about the beauty of white bouquets today!
White bouquets can be a totally gorgeous option for brides and attendants. Mix white blooms with greenery or other lightly-colored blooms to ensure the bouquet stands out from your gown and photographs well.
Go green with blooms from local farmers and growers in your area or near your wedding venue. Adding a vintage brooch borrowed from your mom, grandmother or mother-in-law to be can also add color and character to your bouquet.
Enjoy this snowy day and winter white inspiration!
As a new Mrs., your hands will get a lot of attention on your wedding day. So of course your nails will be well polished! The great news is that you can nail it Eco-Beautifully with one of these toxic-free polishes:
Zoya’s nail polishes are free of harsh chemicals such as formaldehyde and they’re vegan too. For the second year in a row, their colors were all over New York Fashion Week. Zoya even created a collection of signature colors for eco designer Rafael Cennamo (June is gorg!) They also offer toxin-free base, top coats and polish removers to keep your nails lovely for the wedding and honeymoon too.
Known for an array of high fashion nail colors, butter London manages to keep it toxic-free and rocker chic for brides. Their nail lacquers and polishes will really glam up your aisle style! Try out Fiver, an opaque mint color that’s trendy and perfect for a spring or summer wedding. If a colored manicure is too bold, consider a bright color by butter for your toes!
Sparitual uses natural pigments and ingredients from all over the world to create color-rich polishes in a variety of shades. We love that they use organic bamboo as a nail strengthener too. Add some Zen to your wedding day nails with Calm and Clear from the Meditate collection, or maybe go pink and Strike a Pose!
