Green Brides Rent Diamonds

Monday, March 1st, 2010

The Green movement is everywhere, at the supermarket in new cleaning products, on the runway in organic and bamboo fashions, and even on our favorite television shows. According to Recycled Bride, the hottest green trend for 2010 is adding sustainable products and green friendly customs into your wedding day.

Here are a few tips:

Buy Pre-Owned Wedding and Bridesmaids Dresses: Obtaining a pre-owned wedding dress is easier than it sounds. A lot of great websites deal in the ‘recycling’ of wedding dresses and WHY NOT? You always get a great deal, the dresses are beautiful, and you’re helping a fellow bride out. Who knows, maybe she bought the dress in a rush and then found her dream gown 3 months later (which totally happened to one of my good friends). If you’re looking for a good website to start looking, we love the gals at Encore Bridal. Check them out!

green-wedding-tipsPre-owned Wedding Decorations: I like this option because it’s not necessarily one that everyone thinks about. Its not like you’re reusing flowers and napkins, it’s the cake server you use only once, the large/colored candy dishes you need for the centerpieces, the Victorian themed wedding gift card box you wanted so much. You can look for these pre-owned items anywhere, but I recommend checking out Etsy.com, RecycledBride.com, or even asking anyone of your friends who’s gotten married lately if they have anything you could use. 24 hrs before my wedding I realized I didn’t have 1)a unity candle (it’s a Catholic thing), 2)a cake server, and 3)a case to hold the bubbles everyone used when my husband and I left the church. Thank goodness one of my bridesmaids tied the knot a month before and was able to dig up all of the above.

earringsRent Your Bridal Jewelry: This ones my favorite! Not only is it economical to rent Adorns gorgeous dazzling diamonds – it’s great for mother earth too. Renting genuine diamonds helps to reduce your carbon footprint. Don’t believe me? Just check the Green Bride Guide for their tips on creating a sustainable wedding by renting your dress and jewelry. There’s nothing I love more than being green and looking

Its run by Emily Anderson – the author of the 2007 bestseller Eco Chic Wedding  – and has some of the best advice on how to create a wedding that’s sophisticated, stylish, and sustainable.

Beautiful Wedding Gowns for Less!

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

Ok, how awesome is this idea: PreOwnedWeddingDresses.com gives the world of weddings a way to connect buyers and sellers of new, sample and used designer wedding dresses. They’ve got over 3400 wedding dresses available to peruse in just about ANY price range (seriously – the dresses go from $100 to $10,000. Amazing).

Wanna sell your wedding dress? This place is your dream. Its way better than putting it up on Craigslist or Ebay or some other anonymous website because your listing doesn’t expire for 12 full months AND they filter the spam requests for you. I know a few of you are shaking your heads right now “Why would I want to sell my wedding dress?” Honey, I’ve had several friends buy 2, 3, even 4 wedding dresses before they walk down the aisle. Why? They made the mistake of CONTINUING to check out dresses after they bought one. Take a piece of advice from Adorn – once you have your wedding gown stop looking at dresses! It only leads to bigger bills.

Here are some glorious dresses (with some of our glorious gems to match) – bask in their lusciousness!

This simple yet elegant Melissa Sweet gown pairs beautifully with the Stevenson earrings and necklace. Class Act!

Not only is this Monique Lhuillier $1200 cheaper than retail value – its BRAND NEW! It looks amazing with the Budding earring and necklace set Monique-Lhuillier-Empire-PreOwnedBuddingNecklaceBuddingEarrings
