You might want to consider recycling a vintage or used dress. I am making a wedding dress for myself with a loose fit and then a sash I recycled from a favorite old skirt, which I beaded with beads from old necklaces. It is a good thing that I didn't think of using old material for the dress, as I think I would have made myself crazy. I am thinking of making a petticoat out of old silk blouses though. I am trying to use organic flowers, try I looked into locally grown flowers at, but growers in my area don't have flowers yet. It did get an idea going about local flowers at my synagogue though, so I think of it as a process, something that can spread and germinate into other good green ideas. Good luck! Don't make yourself crazy. I even emailed Brides Mag that they should show more of this, if they get one from you, perhaps this will be in their pages more, and they have a lot of influence, like it or not. Also,look to register for recycled items, very lovely, at
