We talk to Susanne Clark of Somerset wedding dress shop Bridal Reloved Street about how to make eco-friendly and sustainable choices when it comes to your wedding dress...
Here at Bridal Reloved Street we specialise in preloved and ex-sample wedding dresses. These gowns, once worn, would usually reside in an attic somewhere until such time that the bride is ready to say goodbye and then be carted off to eventually hit landfill. By offering a new lease of life to these gowns, we are not only offering brides a designer dress at a fraction of the cost, but we are also cutting down on the carbon footprint these gowns leave on our planet, reducing the production rates through multiple use and negating the volume of disposal required.
As you can imagine a wedding dress is usually only worn for a couple of hours either for a catwalk or for someone's big day and is not something one tends to wear over again. This highlights the fantastic condition in which we offer these preloved and ex-catwalk dresses to our beautiful brides. With the huge saving you can potentially make from buying a preloved dress, it leaves more money in the budget to spend on your big day or adding your own personal touches through alterations effectively giving you a designer wedding dress bespoke to you.
