Website resource for the untraditional bride and groom
 
So, I came across this site http://offbeatbride.com/ while looking for 50's/60's style dresses.

OK, I have hit the motherlode! This site is PERFECT for ideas & such for those who are not into the "traditional" cookie cutter wedding (obviously me).
Lots of photos from real ceremonies and all of the usual wedding website stuff.

I know it's not necessarily what the OP was talking about, but I like these sites:

There are also a lot of websites focusing on conflict-free Diamond rings.

Check out greatergood.com also. They have a wide variety of items for sale ranging from clothing to chocolate.

If I'm ever blessed enough to get married, I hope my future husband realizes I'm going to throw a huge fair-trade wedding with Ghanaian chocolate to Ethiopian coffee

The Greater Good website is great! Thank you for sharing that. I look at the Brilliant Earth also. Really nice!

This is the place for a historical bridal attire.

Since my MIL made my dress, I just look at possibilities for others.
