When Marcelia Muehlke couldn’t find a wedding dress that matched her values of human rights and environmental stewardship she decided to take action to help brides, workers, and the environment and started Celia Grace Eco & Fair Trade Bridal.
Celia Grace wedding gowns are gorgeous, flattering, and comfortable thanks to light-as-air heirloom silks and vintage-inspired lace. Each dress is made for the bride with great care and attention to detail. Our skilled seamstresses work in safe, fair conditions, and are paid a living wage, leading to a sense of empowerment through their craft. With each dress they sew, our seamstresses cultivate dignity, skills, and self-confidence so that they can better themselves, their families, and their communities.
