Planning an Eco-Indie Wedding

Gowns: Favorites from

Posted on: January 6, 2009

You can save money anywhere – as long as you try. I have thought about getting a vintage wedding dress (both affordable and eco-friendly), but I just haven’t found any options that reflect my style.

Other than buying a brand new dress made from sustainable fabric (which can be quite expensive), my other green and budget-conscious option is to buy a used dress. There are oodles of websites for second-hand dresses, but so far, PreOwnedWeddingDresses has the most options. Along with their big selection, they have a nifty “dressing room” that you can save dresses in, helping you track if they get sold or the price drops.

I’ve been a bit hesistant to talk about wedding gowns on here because I know my fiance checks the blog now and again. Because of that, I won’t be announcing the dress that I end up choosing until after the wedding. For now, out of the over 500 gowns available in my size, here are my current (and available) favorites:

Any of these would look fabulous on you. You definitely know what flatters your body type.

Thanks πŸ™‚ I got an email from my mom – she likes them all too, but her favorite is the second one.
