Bubble Wrap Wedding Dress

MMh I like the idea of recycling....BUT not quite sure on this one

(pics and words from

30-year-old primary school deputy headteacher wore a dress made of bubble wrap when she tied the knot with Duncan Turner, 32.

The dress used up 13ft of the packing material and was put together last month by pupils and parents at her school for a fashion show featuring recyclable materials.

He said: 'She looked incredible. It's an amazing dress and just goes to show what can be done with unusual materials.
'We're both very keen on the environment and wildlife, and this felt the right thing to do to show our appreciation of important they are.'

The eco-friendly couple walked down an aisle of grass matting with planted flowers in front of 120 guests with Rachael wearing a more traditional dress.
But even that didn't last long as it has now been chopped up and recycled into a cocktail dress.

National wedding show

The National Wedding Show is calling on all Brides to wear their wedding dress to work on the 17th September 2010 to raise vital funds for Breakthrough Breast Cancer. It doesn’t matter if you were married in 2010, 1970 or even if it’s still a work in progress… if you can find a dress (and fit into it!) we need you to get sponsored for wearing it.
For those women who would love to get involved but are not able to wear their wedding dress for the day, why not use a memento from your big day such as a tiara, veil or even your garter. All that is needed is a willingness to raise awareness and funds for the fight against this devastating disease.
Visit for further information on how to get involved and take part

Breakthrough Breast Cancer

The National Wedding Show supports Breakthrough Breast Cancer -- a registered charity -- and is donating 50p from the sale of each ticket purchased for the autumn National Wedding Shows to help win the battle against this disease.
