Weddings are meant to mark the start of a journey of a lifetime together for a couple and celebrating their love for each other. We can get behind wanting to look our best on this most important day ever!

Weddings are meant to mark the start of a journey of a lifetime together for a couple and celebrating their love for each other. We can get behind wanting to look our best on this most important day ever!

Today, with the looming reality of Global Climate change, and our Earth crying out for help, there is a rising need for environmentally-conscious consumption.

Including purchases for wedding gowns!

Is it possible to still be mindful while wedding gown shopping and still find and wear the gown of your dreams? Here’s sharing 4 ways a bride-to-be can shop for your gown in a smarter and more sustainable way:

1. Rental - Where Sustainability meets Luxury Couture


Traditionally, couture designer gowns or just bridal gowns in general are purchased, especially in the Western cultures.

For the last 6 years, Truly Enamoured has revolutionised a new standard of Bridal, and made wearing a couture bridal piece for your wedding more accessible.

Now you can loan an International Designer piece for your big day, at a fraction of the retail purchase price.

Aside from being cost-effective, renting your couture designer bridal gown is a great sustainable option. Each time you rent, you participate in the sharing economy. You are also reducing waste, and lowering your carbon footprint.

Renting a gown that’s only worn once and a few hours, helps place value on reuse. And reduces the amount of clothing that eventually ends up in a black hole, i.e. your wardrobe, or landfill.

2. Sample Sales

Sample Sales can also be a great way to find your dream wedding gown while still keeping the eco-conscious ethos. Truly Enamoured usually has at least one to two Sample Sales a year, where brides can purchase preloved gowns or sample pieces at heavily discounted prices.

Brides who have purchased a brand new gown for their big day and are not sure what to do with their gown after the wedding, can consider the option of placing their gowns with us under consignment during our Sample Sale. That way our expert Stylists will assist with any interested brides-to-be looking for their gowns and your gown gets a second lease of life after your wedding.
