Have you ever considered buying a pre-owned dress? With a variety of consignment shops available, you can find a designer dress for a fraction of the cost, and because it's pre-loved it's also green friendly. Now if buying pre-owned really isn't for you, then try looking for designers that are fair-trade and eco-friendly like
Celia Grace and Deborah Lindquist. See the rest of this rustic farm wedding here for even more budget + earth friendly ideas.
