I absolutely love the idea of using your mother’s old wedding dress as your wedding dress. When Rachael from Rachael Grass Photography and I were talking about being more ‘green’ during a wedding, we knew we needed to include this. Fashion has changed through the years so (with your mom’s approval of course) you can take a piece of what you really love about your mom’s dress and have a seamstress transform it into something that you will cherish forever. That way you can have something you love and a part of something that your mother did.

To add interest to a wedding table, instead of a traditional table runner, you can construct a runner made entirely out of pages of books. Rachael of Rachael Grace Photography came up with this idea and I absolutely love it! You can go to the Goodwill and find books or if you have some old ones lying around the house that haven’t been read in a very long time and you can give them new life and join in the wedding day fun!

A couple weeks ago, I posted a blog about how to allow your bridesmaids to choose their own dress and still look cohesive. This idea goes right along with our recycled/green wedding detail series. I was looking through past wedding photographs from Rachael Grace Photography and found this great concept come to fruition. You have all of your ladies choose a dress, same color, from the same designer. After that, they choose their statement jewelry piece or shoes in a certain color. The outcome is very unique, cohesive and not to mention, gorgeous!

Reclaimed wood can be used in many ways during your wedding. It can enhance the feel and add a touch of rustic charm. Being Breckenridge wedding planners we have seen some of the best ideas for reclaimed wood. When speaking with Rachael Grace Photography about green wedding ideas, we knew that we had to include it. The wood can be painted to inform your guests where the ceremony and reception are. A log can also be cut width wise and makes a great centerpiece stand on your wedding tables. Beautiful!

This is a look I love. When all the bridesmaids wear something different and when they come together, they all correspond with each other. It translates into something so beautiful. When considering what is disregarded after a wedding, one time use bridesmaid’s dresses came to mind. A bride will choose one dress that all of her bridesmaids will wear to look cohesive. Now there are other great ways to have your bridesmaid choose a dress to fit their personal style and still look cohesive. One way is to give a general color and have all of your ladies choose a dress in that color scheme. Give them all the same bouquet and have that tie the look together. Another way is to have all of your bridesmaids choose from a certain dress designer that has many different styles. Assign the color but they can pick what best fits their body. Thank you Rachael Grace Photography for these amazing photos!
