Wedding Dress Sustainability: Brides Survey Results

Last month we asked past brides and brides-to-be to complete our sustainability survey around wedding dresses. We had a great response and we wanted to share the results with you.

This is the first part of a larger and ongoing consideration and conversation for us. We see this as a positive. Educating us with your responses and generating our focus moving forward. Also, most importantly, for brides searching for their dress to have a better understanding of sustainability for weddings in the future.
