Fair Trade Wedding

Ethical Wedding Planning Guide​


I remember waiting for my wedding dress to be shipped from Asia, having no idea at the time that it was probably being finished in a sweatshop.  If you are busy planning your big day, but keep tripping up on ethical considerations, there is good news.  Look below to find many great links and ideas for planning a fair trade wedding, a socially conscious wedding and a wedding that gives back.
