The Wedding Edit: Sustainable Bridal Wear for This Year’s Coolest Brides

The Wedding Edit: Sustainable Bridal Wear for This Year’s Coolest Brides

Rumor has it you’re wearing a new rock on your left hand. 

But you should know, gone are the days of re-mortgaging your house to pay for a fairytale extravaganza. This year’s coolest brides are into sustainability, small parties, unique destinations and looking damn good while doing it.

From Maine to NYC, Puerto Vallarta to Provence the hottest couples are making their day their own, creating intimate, cozy vibes and experiencing something special in a destination they love.

And at Neu Nomads, we’re all for it. Our newest collection is made for brides like you and bridesmaids like yours – who are looking for a simple silhouette, a modern twist, and a dress they can pull out of the closet and wear again as a married woman. Who doesn’t love a versatile piece?

So, to celebrate the launch of our new wedding collection, discover what we’d wear to steal the show in our four favorite wedding destinations.

New York City Wedding @Frank's 

Getting married in the Big Apple? There’s nothing like the chilled, friendly atmosphere at Franks. Perfect for a cozy group of those you love, rowdy toasts as you share college memories, and a delicious night dancing till your feet hurt, This is Frank’s House is the ultimate in NYC cool.

And the bride? She’s bringing that statement charisma to Franks in her Snow White Karlie Jacket teamed with her oh-so-casual Allie Ankle Pants and a delicate Bias Cut Camisole.

This bridal suit combo exudes nonchalance. Easy to wear, easy to accessorize, our Wedding Collection can be combined to give the perfectly tailored shape. Looking for a wider leg? Try the Carina Palazzo. Looking to make a statement? Skip the cami and choose a gold drop necklace to add a feminine twist. Searching for more romance? Wear Karlie and Allie in terra.

With a pair of feminine gold heels, or your fave sneakers for when the dancing never ends, a bridal suit is as cool as you are.

Tulum Beach Wedding @Mayakoba

Skipping the city and heading down to the beach?

Tulum has been the hottest destination wedding for the last few years, and with its slew of dream venues featuring jungle beats, mezcal cocktails, and pristine beaches, which bride can resist?

But with the sand in your toes and the humidity in the air, a tulle-filled meringue dress just isn’t going to cut it in Tulum.

Our beach brides need cool, chic and simple. Enter the Jolene jumpsuit in Snow White. A sexy silhouette with a gathered waist and a drop neckline make the Jolene the perfect beach choice. 

Soft and wide shapes on your arms and legs help you stay covered up against the sun (no one likes sticky sun cream on their wedding day), but the wide legs add a feminine flow. Plus, made from our signature TENCEL™ blend, you’ll stay cool as cucumber, even in the Mexican heat. 

La Provence Wedding @Les Mas Des Poiries

Dreaming of a romantic soirée in rural France? Down in La Provence, where the lemon trees sway and the summer sun means the soft evening light lasts forever, you’ll find the Les mas des Poires exceptionnel.

With long outdoor tables set in dreamy gardens, endless champagne, and staircases made for making an entrance, the bride en provence needs a gown to match. 

Our choice? The effortless french chic of our Cowl Neck Gown or Bias Slip Dress. With a soft silhouette, feminine features, and designs inspired by the simplicity of Parisian style, either one of these pieces fits right in.

The perfect mix of relaxed grandeur, each of our slips come in sustainable, lightweight TENCEL™ to help you keep your cool. In a glamorous full length gown length, or a hip slip calf-length, these relaxed dresses need nothing else.  

And when the sun finally sets on the south of France, drape the Karlie jacket over your shoulders and keep on dancing. It’s your moment after all.

Rural Maine Wedding @Granite Ridge Estate

Okay, we know — you don’t have to travel outside of the States for some fab wedding venues. Thinking of staying closer to home? Take a trip into rural Maine, where you’ll discover the incredible Granite Ridge Estate. With breathtaking views looking over the majestic ridge itself, it’s got a special beauty from fall to summer.

How does a bride compete with nature’s own show-stopping beauty? In the Grace Gown of course.

Floor length, with a drop neckline and a feminine waist hand-tied how you like it, Grace brings the glamor. Perfect for those dramatic backdrop shots, and creating just the right amount of skirt volume for an iconic silhouette, Grace adds a certain je ne sais quoi

But Grace isn’t fussy. You’ll find no complicated tulle here, no uncomfortable rigid boning and absolutely no hard work. Grace is easy, uncomplicated, simple. Under a cool denim jacket or with a faux fur stole for the winter bride, Grace looks the part anywhere.

A Neu Take on Bridal

Wherever you’re celebrating, gone are the days where bridal meant ballroom. Today’s bride wants fuss-free chic, sustainable materials and designs that are made for more than collecting dust in the back of a closet.

Our Neu wedding collection is about versatile pieces. From your rehearsal dinner to your honeymoon breakfast, any piece from our collection fits right in. When your nuptials are over, you don’t have to say goodbye to your wedding wardrobe. 

Re-wear your wedding Karlie jacket with a pair of black skinnies and some heeled ankle boots for work night out. Team your blush Allie pants with a tucked-in tee to grab a coffee with a friend. Take your Grace Gown on your next vacation – it’s the perfect beachside sustainable dress. Throw on your bias cut slip with a denim jacket and some sneakers and you’re city break ready.

The best part about our neu collection is that it’s not just for your wedding day, but for every day. For every one of those mundane moments when you fall in love all over again.
