If you love Monique Lhuillier as much as we do, you’ll be excited to hear they are having a trunk show next week for their 2017 collection. Call our friend, Wendy to schedule an appointment.
If you haven’t stopped by our sister site, The Good Beginning lately, we’d love to invite you to take a peek. As many of you know it’s a place where you can register for donations to your favorite charitable organization as well as find great inspiration if you’re trying to plan a conscious wedding. Recently we shared a post on how to create a mismatched bridesmaid’s look and to go along with that, we’ve actually found who we believe to be one of the best designers out there for said look: Reformation, a boutique and fashion designer based in Los Angeles who is all about making beautiful and conscious gowns and more. At Reformation, fashion and sustainability coexist. And they have the most beautiful options for bridesmaids, both mismatched and matching. Here’s our picks and keep scrolling to read more about how Reformation is leading and inspiring a sustainable way to be fashionable.
Mismatched blush and nude dresses are clean, fresh and beautiful. They’re elegant, feminine and can create the perfect balance of formality and romance. Here are a just a few of our picks:
You want formality all the way and know every girl looks great in black. Reformation has you covered:
Bored with the same ole bridesmaids look? Consider a fun, flirty print to compliment the look and feel of your day. I love any of these textiles and patterns, whether mixed together or perfectly matched.
A BIT OF COLOR
You want an evening affair, but you are just someone who needs a bit of color. Let your bridesmaids show a bit of personality with red, greens or blue tones. I’m so into this combination right now.
Lastly, just in case the beauty of their gowns aren’t enough to sell you, Reformation designs and manufactures garments in their sustainable sewing factory as well as sources sustainable fabrics and vintage garments. By incorporating sustainable practices throughout the supply chain they make a fraction of environmental impact generated by most fashion brands. From using heat-reflecting roof and use of renewable energy, to the recycled hangers in our stores and 100% recycled packaging for every order shipped, sustainability is core to our business at every level. It is their goal to raise awareness around the impact fashion has on the environment and at the same time offer sustainable solutions and choices.
There is so much more to learn about this do gooding company. We hope you’ll take the time to learn more about the company and their philosophies here.
When possible consider giving your single friends a plus one, especially if you’re having a destination wedding. Few things make a person feel more single than a wedding and giving them a companion can make the wedding that much more enjoyable for your guest. And, obviously, when traveling for a wedding, your single guests will appreciate the ability to have someone to hit the beach with, relax with as well as well as just having a dance partner at the weekend’s festivities.
If you’re in Los Angeles or heading this way to find the gown, definitely make sure to make an appointment to stop by Solstice Bride, a new loft style boutique in Venice. With the goal of providing access to hard to find designers for the Bohemian bride with a bit of an edge, owner, Orla Stiles, has created a bridal haven featuring designers and dressmakers who you may or may not know.
From the feminine and charming designs of Elizabeth Dye to the edge of Stone Fox Bride to the European sensibility of Delphine Manivet, we are just so in love with the collection she’s curated. In addition to gowns, Solstice carries cheeky lingerie and beautiful hair accessories created by Erica Elizabeth Designs and many others.All images from For The Love of It, originally seen on Green Wedding Shoes.
