Going Green has Gone to the Gowns

It has become very chic to go green for just about everything, including your wedding.  At veiled events, we offer our eco-lovely services to turn your wedding and reception into a beautifully green event.

Being eco-friendly for your wedding doesn't usually include your wedding dress {unless you buy a previously worn dress}.  But now, you have the opportunity to wear a brand new, couture gown that is totally eco-lovely!  

Our friends at Posh Bridal Couture recently added Foat Design wedding dresses to their collection. 

Using reclaimed silk, tulle and other materials from old bridal gowns, Foat Design creates one-of-a-kind wedding dresses that are absolutely gorgeous. Foat Design is a Minneapolis-based company comprised of two sisters. One living in San Francisco and the other residing right here in Minneapolis.

Posh also carries Adele Wechsler gowns.  Her "ecocouture" line is also very beautiful and unique.  Adele uses organic hemp and silk, vegetable dyes, and remnant fabrics to make her gowns.  This offers brides an eco-friendly option for their gowns and still having a luxury, couture dress.

If you have not had the chance to check out Posh Bridal really should go!  Posh is located in the Semple Mansion on Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis.  "Posh" is exactly what you experience the moment you walk through the door. Marie and Stacy truly love what they do and that shines through in their service and how beautiful their boutique is.  When you are there you feel like a VIP because their one-on-one attention is unmatched.  The gown selection is extraordinary.  They carry lines not found in other shops in the Twin Cities {i.e. Foat Design}.
