This Is How To Achieve A Sustainable Bridal Style

  |  By Kimberly Aglipay

When it comes to your wedding, you might think that sustainable ceremony and reception decor is easy enough to source. But what about your outfit? Sustainable fashion has been trending recently, and we couldn't be happier. Now more than ever there are plenty of options to choose from to feel good about your fashion choices, and the trend has rolled over to bridal style. We've rounded up some top places where you can pick up sustainable bridal pieces that will have your guests'—and the planet's—approval.

The bridal gown and bridesmaid gowns: Reformation

Beloved sustainable fashion brand Reformation has recently opened in Canada, with its first Canadian flagship opening at Toronto's Yorkdale Mall. The California-based company is known for its vintage-inspired clothing pieces that look flattering on many body types, as well as its chic, sexy bridal gowns and bridesmaid gowns that you can wear again to events after your wedding day. The brand strives to make every aspect of the business green, from repurposing fabrics to creating their own eco fabrics, as well as being 100% carbon, waste and water neutral, ensuring their carbon footprint is low. Hot tip: for Canadians, when you order online, taxes and duties already calculated upon checkout.

The veil: Grace Loves Lace

Grace Loves Lace's latest collection "La Bamba" features not only luxury veils made with ethically sourced fabric, but they've also taken the excess fabric from these veils and transformed them into gorgeous scarves you can use as a chic hair accessory, and anklets that are a unique complement to your bridal shoes. Any of these accessories will ensure your outfit truly stands out.

The clutch: Sinta & Co.

A chic clutch that carries are the necessities for your big day (you'll definitely need lipstick for touch ups and a hankerchief for crying) is a must. We love the clutches from Sinta & Co., a company that carries ethically-made wedding goods made from local artisans in the Philippines. You can feel good knowing that you're carrying an accessory in which the materials were sourced with minimal impact to the environment. Each piece is handcrafted and looks incredibly unique, giving your bridal outfit a special touch.

The reception shoes: Allbirds

We're big fans of changing into shoes that are a bit more comfy than heels after your ceremony to make it easier to dance the night away. Our pick for sneakers that you can hit the dance floor in (and are sustainably made) are the kicks from Allbirds, which are made using sustainable fabrics created by the company themselves. Using responsibly harvested tree fibres and Merino wool for the fabric and recycled water bottles for the laces, you'll feel good wearing these sneakers not only on your wedding day but in your everyday life.
