The term “hippie” appeared for the first time during the mid 60’s and defined itself as a countercultural movement. Initiated by the youth in US was soon known to spread all over the world. This movement promoted peace, freedom and exploration of alternative states of consciousness. It brought a major impact in television, film, literature, and arts. Its religious and cultural diversity have gained widespread acceptance, and the Eastern philosophy and spiritual concepts have attained a vast audience. Its legacy can be noticed in contemporary culture in several forms – from healthy food to music festivals, and even to cyberspace revolution.

Hippie’s influence can also be remarked in our nowadays awareness of our impact on the environment. This impact extends to our clothing as well through the concept of an environmentally friendly clothing. There are more and more couples to consider before getting married in what way their wedding affects the world around. In respect to this hippie wedding dresses might be the right choice since in the process of their manufacture organic, or otherwise sustainable produced, fabrics are used. One may find natural fibers like silk, bamboo, cotton, linen or hemp as important texture for hippie wedding dress.

hippie-wedding-dressesWhen we say hippie dress we don’t necessary have to think of a shapeless sack or an unaesthetic result of a hippie-like cut for a gown. Modern designers have lots of options from where one might choose.   Either it comes to two pieces gown or one piece wedding dress the common feature is mirrored in both of the conceptions: that they fit on all body types.

Another thing that gives accessibility to a hippie wedding dress is that  one can choose an existing design and have it modified according to one’s will, all these at an incredible low cost. Added to the gown a vintage beaded or embroidered purse works wonders! And if the bride needs a hairdo it can be done brilliantly by decorating the hairstyle with tiny flowers to confer the air of freshness and joy to the marital couple.

In order to go with the spirit of hippie movement and what it stands for designers cut the simplicity into organic fibers fabrics thus succeeding to create unique eco-conscious dresses. Combining all these features, hippie dresses manage to preserve their flavor of freedom, purity and freshness, the well-known flower power style.11
