"What the heck is a Fair Trade wedding dress?" Imagine a fabulous gown that gives back & empowers women around the world. We use unique & exclusive heirloom silks & laces & organic dyes from Indian temples. Oh, and they are competitively priced too.

There are unique wedding dresses. And reasonably priced wedding dresses. And ethical wedding dresses. But all three at once? Yup, that's Celia Grace, maybe the best thing to happen to your wedding dress search since pockets (we have those too, of course!)

We LOVE helping brides have a #giveback wedding (with ethical, eco-friendly, & Fair Trade elements) so we wrote an ebook to make it EASY. Grab your copy here.

We cater to brides who are beautiful inside and out and who care most about celebrating love and commitment with their family, friends, and community. We love that we get to connect women around the world so they can help one another through our wedding dresses. Learn more about Fair Trade & how Celia Grace gives back here.

How we make our dresses isn't the only thing that sets us apart. Our heirloom silks are oh-so-light and lovely and are like nothing else you'll find. And they help preserve a traditional art form of silk weaving that has been passed down from mother to daughter for generations in Cambodia. See our full collection here.

Loving lace? We've got exclusive and unique embroidered laces.

Craving color? We are the only wedding dress line that uses flowers and other offerings reclaimed from Hindu temples to create stunning organic dyes. It is like there are blessings in the very fiber of your dress.

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

We want to make it easy for you to find the dress of your dreams without compromising your style or your ethics. Here's the info you'll need:

We sell our dresses three ways. First, you can find our dresses at our Amherst MA and Brooklyn NY studios and at fabulous independent bridal shops in Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Minneapolis, and more. Get details on these and other shops here.

Second, our dresses tour the U.S. See our trunk show schedule here.

Finally, if you can't make it to a shop or a trunk show, we would be happy to mail you 1-2 sample dresses to try on. This is U.S. only and costs $50 (the fee is nonrefundable but we take $50 off your order). Request a sample dress to try on here.

Here's some other key info we won't make you beg for:
Our dresses range in price from $500 – $3,000. (Want an exact price on a dress style? Just ask us, we are happy to help.We recommend buying your dress at least 6 months before your wedding but can do usually accommodate rush orders (rush fee applies so plan ahead if you can!). Celia Grace uses standard sizing (not made to measure) in US sizes 0-14 with additional sizes available (we use "street" sizing, not smaller bridal sizing). See our size chart here.

Celia Grace is committed to equal marriage and welcomes LGBT brides & couples.
