In celebration of Earth month, we are excited to shine a spotlight on bridal brands that are leading the way in sustainable design. From wedding gown designers to invitations, the following brands make true on their promise to promote sustainable living by limiting waste in production in addition to using recycled materials. Join us in applauding these trailblazing brands as they redefine bridal fashion with a conscious twist.

Nadia Manjarez

Nadia Manjarrez recently launched her own line of modular gowns. These gowns are all about giving brides the flexibility to rock multiple looks on their wedding day with just one dress. And here’s the best part – since wedding gowns are usually a one-time wear, Nadia offers an upcycling service.

Brides can bring back their gown after the wedding, and Nadia’s team in Mexico will work their magic to transform it into something new for another special occasion. Plus, she’s all about using recycled materials, especially taffeta, to craft these beautiful pieces. Nadia’s creativity and sustainability approach are truly making waves in the bridal fashion world.

Brenna Simmons introduced nordeen, a bridal collection that embraces mindfulness towards transparency, materials, and nature. Transitioning from her role as a sustainable ready-to-wear designer, Brenna embarked on creating a bridal line influenced by the beauty of nature and her commitment to its preservation.

The collection is a result of collaboration with manufacturers and suppliers who prioritize responsible production practices. With a focus on using natural fibers in their woven materials, each garment in the collection is meticulously crafted by talented artisans located in New York City and Los Angeles.
