Green Weddings 2011: Jessica Charles

Hosting a green wedding is definitely socially and environmentally responsible. One thing that "green" weddings do not have to be is dull.

There are so many products available that offer a "green" option with style. One such company is Jessica Charles formerly Jessica Iverson;
who has just unveiled their 2011 Spring Collection from their Terra Amore line. Santa Barbara-based wedding dress designer Jessica Charles has set out to make eco-friendly gowns chic and even more luxurious and beautiful than traditional gowns. She has made "green" chic and elegant.

As with her designs Jessica has gone above and beyond by donating 3% of the profits from each dress to Alma Terra, a non-profit children’s charity that provides an “oasis of happiness” to less fortunate children in Africa. How fulfilling to create elegant "eco-friendly" gowns and giving back at the same time. Jessica Charles definitely embodies the green movement.

Be Inspired by "green" and fabulous.
