So confession time…I have a few embarrassing habits. For one I love eating marinara sauce straight out of the jar (it’s like gazpacho!!), and for another I love love looking at wedding dresses–yay! Seriously, I don’t even think I’m thinking about *my* own future wedding dress, so much as enjoying watching other people get worked up about it. For instance, when a bride is like, my grandfather would’ve loved this dress and starts breaking down in sobs–that is just real. Or when she puts something on and her friends love it but she is all, ‘This isn’t me!’. Wedding dress shows are so illuminating and cathartic, I tell you.
But most of the dresses I find are quite one and the same, every episode. (If I have to see that one see-through bodice dress one more time…you know which one.) Plus, if you are a vegan bride committed to a 100% cruelty-free, vegan wedding, it’s crucial to take a look at silk-free wedding dress options–of which thankfully there are many! Don’t feel intimidated because even in the past few years, there have been an increase in vegan wedding dress options. Here are some stunning vegan dresses that won’t lack for luxury, elegance, or couture.
