The Braided Bride

braided braid wedding day hair brides eco friendly green weddings

If the sultriness of summer has you rethinking your wedding day ‘do, the braid is a choice worth considering.  This carefree style is ideal for many reasons—it’s easy, can be accented with fresh flowers, headpieces, and frames your glowing face! Even if you opt for a partially-braided style, keeping the hair away from the face is a bonus for summer brides. 

Are you a braided bride?  We’d love to see your pics!

Beautifully Backed

wedding dress back details fashion eco friendly green weddings

A beautifully dramatic back on a wedding gown is certainly a “WOW” factor.  Be it with lace, beading, or other sparkly elements, back details continue to make their mark on runways and aisles everywhere this season.   Completely classic or a bit sexy, but always feminine, the detailed back is a lovely way to accentuate the womanly curvature.

How do you go eco with a detailed back you may ask?   That vintage brooch that you planned to pin to the front of your gown would go just as perfectly in the back too.  Have a sash handmade to bring some drama, or have a creative seamstress incorporate some of the material from a family gown into the back of yours.

Gardenias!

What a gorgeous flower that gardenia is!  Gardenias are in season from May through July (which is a bonus for reducing your wedding’s carbon footprint, depending on where you are) and surely to make an appearance at a number of summer weddings.  Since gardenias are such a robust flower, they can do it all- bouquets, boutonnières, in the hair, you name it.  The gardenia is beautiful all by her lonesome, or certainly mixed in with a few fresh floral friends!
