An Eco-Friendly Wedding Dress
Eco conscious bride Rachel Robinson thought a traditional white wedding gown was a waste of money, so instead decided to take a radical approach to her wedding day. She discarded tradition of silk and taffeta and went with luscious layers of bubble wrap.
The primary school teacher enlisted the help of her pupils and their parents to make the special dress which was originally used as part of a school fashion show under the theme of sustainable style.
The alternative dress was made by sewing 13 feet of bubble wrap onto a fabric base. A 3 foot train was created with overlapping layers of Haribo sweet packaging, and also white packing materials.
The newlywed says she would recommend the bubble-wrap dress to any bride-to-be saying that as an individual who is passionate about the environment and wildlife, the eco-dress was the right choice of bridal wear for her.
To keep the unusal theme running through out the wedding, the newly weds are now on honeymoon in Papa New Guinea.
