You might love it, or you might hate it, but it looks like green is here to stay.

Whether you want to green your wedding a lot or a little, it’s not entirely likely that you’re willing to give up all your dreams for your big day in the name of the environment. Unless you’re quite the greenie, that is.

Well, since green has gotten so big, you might not be the only bride planning an eco-friendly event, but you do have the chance to wear something a little more couture than a burlap sack.

Enter Rene Geneva Design.

You may not have heard of this eco-friendly designer yet, but she’s well on her way to making quite the (non-carbon) footprint on the fashion world. Not only did her designs appear at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in L.A. last year, but she’s already set to show her stuff at many fashion shows in 2008 too.

Not all that inclined to wear itchy, itchy hemp? Don’t worry, Rene Geneva designs her stylish duds with soft silky hemp as well as eco-friendly cotton and silks. On top of that, all fabrics are imported and designs are exported carbon-neutral, and everything is made with fair trade and ethical labor as top priorities.


If you think all that attention to the environment means these dresses aren’t gorgeous, think again. The picture above is just one of her many designs, and it proves that this is one couture creator.

If you’re looking for wedding gowns, there are a few great options available, but my personal favorites are all dresses that could be worn by bridesmaids.

What do you brides out there think? Are these designs fabulous or will we have to agree to disagree?

    I think the idea of green dresses is great! At the same time, I also think it’s just as green to recycle an old dress (by buying one at a thrift shop or making modifications to a relative’s dress, for example.) I’m not too sure about the design of this dress–it looks more like lingerie to me, and the giant tail-like sash is a little disturbing.

    Until I read this post I really had no idea fashion could be environmentally friendly. I think it would be great if all weddings could be eco-friendly and cost effective.

The outstanding eco-designer also offers dresses that are stylish and comfortable enough for the office or a night out on the town.
