It’s wonderful when the wedding budget includes glamorous jewelry and accessories, but if it not, borrowing is always an option. We’re huge advocates of borrowing for your wedding day, as reusing items is one the best ways to eco your wedding. Your mother’s, mother-in-law-to-be’s, and grandmother’s jewelry boxes are likely full of treasures to borrow. And it’s so special to wear something that’s so meaningful to your family on your wedding day.
Another borrowing option is online companies like Adorn, that rent the glamour, luxury and elegance of fine diamonds and pearls at very affordable prices. So that $15,000 diamond necklace you spotted on the recent red carpet? It can be your something borrowed!

For weddings held during the cooler months, a stylish bolero, shrug or jacket is a must-have to stay warm. In addition to keeping the chill away, they also bring some style and versatility to your gown for outdoor pics, and during the ceremony or reception. There are a number of options out there, so you can get as creative and trendy as you’d like!
Kezia + Jason wanted a day that truly reflected their love for each other and family, so they opted to plan it all themselves! The crafty couple went DIY for their entire wedding celebration, even creating the ties worn by the groom and the couple’s fathers. Another sweet touch to the wedding was Kezia + Jason’s decision to have their parents as their wedding party. The couple incorporated a “Loving Cup” element to their ceremony, in which they served each other’s parents mulled wine as symbol of unity.
Kezia + Jason’s wedding’s was inclusive, personal and done totally their way…
Many Eco-Beautiful Wedding wishes to Kezia + Jason!
