Who could have thought that finding some decent, sustainable dresses to wear to a wedding, would be so painfully difficult? I have, quite literally, spent weeks searching the web, trying to find something elegant from the sustainable fashion brands I follow. Unfortunately, most dresses that I have found were simply too casual for what I needed. From yoga chic to swamp princess – none of these looks were appropriate. Well… not for the type of wedding that I am going to attend anyway….
But after the long, tireless and a little obsessive googling, my search finally came to fruition. I finally found exactly what I was looking for – twelve beautiful, chic and sustainable dresses. These wedding guest and bridesmaid dresses are etchical but not boring. You’re welcome.
