We know that summer is almost over, but just in case you’re still in need of a sandal (maybe for your honeymoon trip?), please make it eco! Gurus is a really fun company that can help with this, as they create footwear from rubber that is naturally sourced from trees. The sandal’s design is inspired by a traditional Indian design that’s over 5,000 years old, so you can say it’s classic with a modern twist.
The guys behind Guru have actually launched a Kickstarter campaign to fill the world with their eco-friendly soles; learn more about the campaign and company here!

There are so many words that come to mind when we think of Amy Kuschel’s gowns. But at the top of list? Gorgeous! Based in San Francisco, Amy’s designs balance the classic and modern perfectly. As evidenced by the lovely ensemble of brides who’ve worn her gowns (just take a peek at her Facebook page), Amy Kuschel’s gowns bring bridal visions to life. Enveloped in stunning fabrics and silhouettes, the Amy Kuschel bride feels as every bride should—undeniably beautiful.
We loved working with Amy on our Spring 2011 issue too, her gowns captured our vision of eco rocker chic beautifully!

Any plans for the afternoon of September 8th? If you’re in the Atlanta area, a great way to spend the day would be to attend the 5th Annual Inspired Bride event! Presented by StudioWed, this year’s Inspired Bride is an afternoon of stylish wedding ideas inspired by the Golden Ages of Romance. They’ll be wedding design tablescapes, catering and cake tastings, and a gifting suite where you can fill your own swag bag! We’ve spotted a few eco vendors, including Handmade by Sara Kim, Tieks, and Buff Her (that specializes in yummy organic exfoliators) so you can keep your wedding planning green too.
There’s one free ticket available if you register by September 1, 2013—just use the code swfriend. Go grab your ticket here!
