Are you a blushing bride to be [1]? Why not forgo that plain white gown and turn to an eco-friendly wedding dress [2] that will transform into FIVE dramatic outfits? In a stand against throwaway fashion, British researchers have turned this iconic one-time wearable into a gown that can be dissolved in water [3]. Made from Polyvinyl alcohol, an odorless nontoxic polymer, the dress is able to break down in water without doing any harm to the environment. As for our accessory recommendations: umbrella bouquet and Kleenex veil!
