Wedding Dress Embellishments for the Eco-Friendly Bride

If your dress needs a little more oomph, consider adding a handmade sash, a jute belt, or a beautiful arrangement of colored peace silk flowers to adorn the top or bottom of your dress. Just a little pop of color, a touch of classic antique crystal, or even semi-precious stones will do the trick.


Look for re-purposed dress embellishments or create your own to capture you special style. If you don’t want to add any color to a traditional white gown, look for an elegant white pearl sash or a white jacket made from organic cotton. If you have a strapless dress you can play up that simple neckline with a sash that stretches from just above your hip to your shoulder. This can complement any dress, and will make you feel unique and beautiful.
