I'm taking part in an event next weekend that I am really excited about - Wed Altered - a pop up shop featuring socially conscious, earth friendly wedding dress and accessory designers. So, this week's Weekly Wedding Look is very close to my tree-hugging, hippie heart, and it features fellow earth-loving enthusiasts who are joining me at Wed Altered. Everything from invitations you can plant to bags made out of recycled materials..cool stuff, take a peak!
