Celia Grace Founder Talks About Fair Trade Wedding Dresses

Thanks, A Practical Wedding, for listing us as one of nine fair trade wedding companies to know about! 

Interested in knowing what fair trade is? This is what Celia Grace's founder, Marcie Muehlke, had to say about the subject:

"Fair Trade is a global social movement to end poverty through trade rather than aid. The idea is to pay farmers and workers a fair price or wage and then let those farmers and workers invest in themselves and their families how they see fit. So basically, if a wedding is a celebration of love, family, and community, then including Fair Trade products in your celebration allows you to widen the circle of love, support, and community your wedding creates. Plus, choosing Fair Trade products is an easy way to give back through your wedding (and even your pickiest relatives can’t complain about that).

There are a range of governing bodies of Fair Trade, including FLO (dominant in Europe), The Fair Trade Federation, and Fair Trade USA in the States, and more. The Fair Trade Federation has nine principles of Fair Trade:

  • Create Opportunities for Economically and Socially Marginalized Producers
  • Develop Transparent and Accountable Relationships
  • Build Capacity
  • Promote Fair Trade
  • Pay Promptly and Fairly
  • Support Safe and Empowering Working Conditions
  • Ensure the Rights of Children
  • Cultivate Environmental Stewardship
  • Respect Cultural Identity
