In Reply to: Hemp and Hemp Silk Wedding Gowns - an Update! posted by Vanessa Doyle on April 02, 2002 at 09:48:29:
Don't even bother...there are plenty of sources on the web to purchase hemp & hemp blend fabrics by the yard. I found a beautiful hemp blend & am having my dress made. I went the route of a dress maker rather than a Wedding Dress Maker, because anything that has "wedding" in the description is goign to be more expensive. It's a traditional looking dress but simple in that there is very little embelishment (I am doing that myself but could have easily found someone to do the beadwork & embroidary). I am only paying $120 to the tailor and will have a beautiful dress I can feel good about when I wear it. In my mind it's just plain silly to pay the extra markup for Wedding Dress, especially the hemp dresses that have the I'll-pay-extra-for-earth-friendly-products markup. Good luck ladies!
