One complaint some brides-to-be have is the expense of a wedding dress when it's only worn once -- which is where this line of biodegradable clothing comes in. Growable Gowns provide brides with fungi wedding dresses that can be used as compost after the big day.

This sustainable fashion solution for the eco-conscious bride was conceived by Erin Smith, who came up with the concept when she was getting married as a grad student in New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program. The wedding gown she constructed was made out of fungi, bacteria and wearable plant matter like mycelium. Brides can grow the biodegradable clothing themselves in one week. So if you are in a time crunch as well, this mushroom-made dress serves multiple functions.
