I just completed an article about vegan weddings with Kristina Moreno, a stylist at Vow to Be Chic. Kristina mentioned that many dresses, although they seem to be free of animal materials, are actually not vegan. Apparel items are often made with animal based glues or fillers.
 
Kristina strongly recommended Donna Morgan’s dresses for vegan bridesmaid dresses. You can rent them from Vow to Be Chic (http://vowtobechic.com). Kelsey Doorey, CEO and founder of Vow to Be Chic, says you can rent a bridesmaid’s gown for a fraction of the cost of buying one. Vow to Be Chic will also ship the gown to you months in advance so you can try it on long before The Big Day.
 
Jill Milan also offers a large number of clutches for bridesmaids. Some of our most popular clutches have been the pale gray clutches below. The Art Deco Clutch in the pale gray fabric was carried by Sarah Hyland to the People’s Choice Awards.
 
Other popular choices have been the mint, turquoise, blue and purple clutches below. These beautiful handmade Italian clutches in pastel colors are perfect for summer weddings, as well as for everyday use. Each clutch is entirely made in Florence form Italian fabrics.
