Fairytale Dreams ~ Which Goose

Whichgoose is a one-girl operation run by Maryland- native Emily Zych. She takes inspiration from nature and vintage romance to create whimsical crowns and unique bridal accessories.

Her main goal is to create a fantasy for brides -- to transform their childhood fairytale dreams into a stylish reality.

Emily uses mostly natural and vintage elements in the pieces she makes. The natural elements tend to be items that gatheedr from the ground or harvested from large growths. Vintage is the most exciting element to Emily. It's the best form of recycling in her opinion!

You're wearing something that someone else has already loved ... the idea is so romantic!

So many decorative items from nature can be incorporated at very little cost! Emily loves the idea of a "woodland" style wedding. Think of little branch and moss centerpieces. And depending on the season, there is so much that grows abundantly and naturally that can be used for flower decorations without the additional expense of a florist. Potted plants are also a great idea – centerpieces that guests can take with them and continue to enjoy.

Emily feels that so much of what we do nowadays is thrown away after one use -- but a wedding should be an event that lasts (not just in your memory).

WhichGoose does custom work! Emily loves to make original creations based on a bride's colors or ideas for their wedding. E-mail her at

Look for Emily's creations on the catwalk in this year's Eco Fashion Show at the Mid-Atlantic Green Wedding Showcase!

Welcome Back for 2011!!!

Brides, grooms, moms and more ~

Welcome back to the Mid-Atlantic Green Wedding Showcase. It's our sophomore year and we're coming back better, stronger and greener than before.

You'll see some familiar names on our website already - we're please to have the Aveda Institute, Blue Sky Films, the Green Bride Guide and Andy Kushner Entertainment back, to name a few. But there are new faces, too. We are excited to bring Up Do's for I Do's to the team, as well as other new exhibitors and sponsors.

The swanky and gorgeous Eco Fashion Show will make a return too. Almost 20 of the freshest talents in the field of green design will be showing off their garments on the runway - for brides, maids and flower girls. Wanna see how incredible it was last year? Check out our slideshow!

This is one wedding showcase you do not want to miss. Far from boring aisles of the same-old, same-old - we are going to inspire your Big Day - and every day - to new levels of eco-savvy style!

Tickets are on sale now! Get your early bird discount tickets here and join us for the 2nd Mid-Atlantic Green Wedding Showcase at the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center in College Park, MD!
