31 Bits wedding line launch!

Categories   Wedding Fashion

Raise your hands if you love pretty products that contribute to an awesome cause. We definitely do! And lucky for all of us 31 Bits just launched a bridal jewelry line that will be up for grabs in our Pop-Up Shop next week!

31 Bits is a socially minded business using fashion and design to empower women to rise above poverty. They work with women in Northern Uganda who are making jewelry out of recycled paper. Isn’t that awesome? Who says fashion can’t be green?

By selling the jewelry here, 31 Bits not only provide a sustainable monthly income for the women, but also education and development programs that prepare the women for future careers.

Today 31 Bits is introducing their first-ever wedding line! The theme of The Wedding Collection is “First Comes Love…”. Your relationship didn’t start with a wedding, just like 31 Bits didn’t start with a business plan. It simply started with love.

When the girls of 31 Bits met women in Uganda, heard their stories, saw their talents, and met their families, they knew there was an opportunity to do something much greater. They started in 2008, selling jewelry made by six Ugandan women, and have since then grown to over 100 women! With every piece of jewelry sold, these women and women everywhere are being empowered. The Wedding Collection gives brides the opportunity to use their love story to share another story. As these exquisite pieces play a part in your big day, they will also play a part in creating new futures for our women in Uganda.

You guys, if that’s not a good enough reason to proudly wear 31 Bits for your wedding, or any occasion… they’ve also been featured in People Style Watch and Harper’s Bazaar, and Jessica Alba was spotted rocking a 31 Bits necklace not too long ago!

It’s amazing that the community of women planning their wedding and reading wedding blogs can contribute to the lives of a community of women on another continent, just by wearing their necklaces. We’ll be shopping our sale next week for sure!

We probably don’t need to tell you that you can wear their wedding line for non-wedding events too. And as a bonus, pieces from their fall collection will be available in the Pop-Up Shop as well.

Check out their entire wedding catalog here. Like them on Facebook here. Shop them at a discount next week here!

These are beautiful! I love that 31 Bits is creating the opportunity for people to help break poverty cycles. It can feel overwhelming to know how to help, and this is such a relevant and simple way that brides can be a part of that. Thanks for sharing this!
