I choose this beautiful ring because it doesn't support "blood" diamonds, so it's animal and human friendly. :)

My choice is for this dress by Patchwork by Sarah:

http://www.etsy.com/
view_listing.php?listing_id=22368207

Sarah takes this basic (gorgeous) design and then works with your tastes and measurements to make just the perfect customized dress - you could do all white fabrics, light florals, or even bright colors if that's where your heart is. It's your wedding! Your dress should make you happy - really happy, not the way the magazines show it (borderline starving and $8k in the hole).

Having tried to do it, I can tell you that it is REALLY HARD to find wedding dresses, or even nice formal-style dresses, that are not made at least in part of silk. This dress gives us a world of vegan options and a huge range of expression well beyond the "norm". Plus it will be hand made by Sarah - no worries of sweatshop labor, etc... Hurrah for the perfect dress!

Oh this is awesome! My husband and I had a vegan (and ethical) wedding. Our wedding rings were made with ethically mined gold. All of the food was vegan, not everyone was happy about that but OH WELL!

I chose these awesome vegan valentine cupcakes by The Cupcake Mint because Vegan Food is the most important vegan statement you can make at your wedding! And the best way to get folks to try and LIKE vegan food is to make it for them! I think these cupcakes would look PERFECT on the dessert table at any wedding :)

Please can I eat ALL of them?

I chose organic, slow roasted peanuts frm pitseel as an alternative to the very posh wdding food, caviar. Southern folks call peanuts "country caviar!"

Instead of a traditional wedding cake, I would serve the cupcakemint's triple chocolate heaven vegan cupcakes, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23079544, which would look great on one of vegan dish's cupcake stands, http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=21814964, I want everyone to know that as a vegan you don't have to sacrifice your love of chocolate.

This is a perfect challenge for me to enter, because I will be a vegan bride May 18th, so happy and excited! :0) There are so many great choices from Vegan Etsy, but I'm choosing this vegan clay mask by Daisy Wares;

It would be a nice way to start of my wedding day with smooth, soft, refreshed skin.
I'm a big fan of her jewelry and body products, and use her vanilla and watermelon lip balms all the time, love them, and would like to try some of the new goodies, she has gorgeous pictures too! ;0) Michele mvegan5@gmail.com

I chose the Cream Rose Swarovski Pearls and Crystal Flower Necklace http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_2&listing_id=19340047&ga_search_query=VEGANETSY+TEAM&ga_search_type=tag_title&ga_page=94&min=&max=&order=price_asc

This necklace is stunning and would look great with my off white dress.

I love these cream vases for centerpieces: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?ref=sr_list_8&listing_id=12450401&ga_search_query=VEGANETSY+TEAM&ga_search_type=tag_title&ga_page=96&min=&max=&order=price_asc

I always thought that the tradition of "something old something new....." was silly, but I would definitely do it MY way with this button from HealingHeart http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=14159927
That little middle button would make a perfect "something blue", and make a statement at the same time (I am Canadian).
