Gorgeous Gowns that are Good for the Earth and your Wallet

Justin Alexander Wedding Dress
I Love this! Floral details make this wedding dress perfect for casual mountain fetes

Used wedding dresses, also known as once worn or gently worn wedding dresses are the perfect way to love the Earth and save some cash.  Let’s face it, we’re all trying to wrangle our budget in some way, and a pre-owned wedding gown can save some serious cash without compromising on quality or design. However, as lovers of the mountains and nature, it’s also important to think of the impact your wedding has on the environment. While recycling your waste is great; it’s best to limit creating new things. Instead use what’s already there, um, like a wedding gown! Instead of ordering a brand new wedding gown, find a pre-owned one. Save a bunch of dough, and show your love for the mountains by being a good steward of the environment.
