Brides are going green!

... and we don't mean the colour! Everyone likes to be environmentally conscious, and for some brides, that extends right to their wedding day. To help these eco-friendly brides achieve their dream "green" wedding, New York designer Simple Silhouettes, has come out with a bridesmaid dress made of 100% organic hemp/cotton. The Orchid dress (shown right) is proof that you don't need to sacrifice style to go green! It even has side seam pockets - perfect for storing the all important tissue (100% recycled of course) or lipstick for the bride on her big day.

Green brides typically use 100% recycled paper for invitations, but some brides are now forgoing paper invitations all together and are using evites or personalized websites to invite guests to their nuptials... this not only saves a tree, but also saves your tongue from paper cuts after licking all those envelopes and stamps!

New Jocelyn dress not just for bridesmaids!

Jenny Yoo's new Jocelyn dress in 100% silk shantung has not only been noticed by many a lucky bridesmaid this season, but has caught the eye of chic brides too! If you're looking for a retro or a more casual wedding look, you may want to try the Jocelyn on for size. We have even seen a few hip mothers of the bride choose the Jocelyn dress as their preferred frock for their daughter's wedding. Picture it in sugarplum or even in black for a classic LBD in your closet.
