Like Vintage? If You're Looking for a Vintage Wedding Gown...

Miss Betsy
Priscilla of Boston "Miss Betsy". Old stock, never worn. Some discoloring to outer layer due to age and storage, but blends in nicely. The flared lace sleeves are exquisite with seed pearls scattered throughout. Illusion lace with bateau neckline. Skirt is made of a stiffer organza in a tea-stained hue that gives it a wonderful antique patina.    Price: $595.00

Bonny Bride
Vintage White Wedding Gown
The delicate detailing of ivory appliques and a fitted shirred waist will highlight a bride's beauty. Buttons up the back with an organdy rose at the base of the buttons (this could easily be removed). This dress was originally purchased from The Brides Shop at Gimbels, California and worn for a June wedding (see cleaning tag) for a bride named Bonnie.  Price: $895.00

1950's Ball Gown
Vintage Hollywood glamour at its best. This stunning white ball gown has a fitted shirred waist and a large bow in back below the zipper. this dress fits snuggly against the bust, with an outer layer of fabric that stands out a bit. Labeled a Mike Benet Formal, size 8. Pictured with a crinoline, not included.
Beauty Marks: Hidden underneath the large back bow is a small blue spot. This dress has not been cleaned yet, so there are some marks along the hem where it hit the floor.  Price: $950.00

Country Club Vintage Style Gown
This illusion neckline gown is so 1950's, and yet it is a modern dress. Created out of a creamy silk with covered buttons and trimmed cuffs, the details delight a fan of classic style. Pictured with a crinoline, not included. Price: $375.00
Simone Edwardian Wedding Dress
Breath-taking is the only way to describe this beauty. The embroidered dots and fine lace are just part of the exquisite detail that make this dress perfect. This dress just feels special. The age, the craftsmanship, the tea-stained color. It looks rich and lovely.
Vintage Monique Lhuillier

Modern designer dress by Monique Lhuillier with 1930's appeal. This seductive bias cut silk will keep all eyes on you. "Iman" style, size 10. Beauty Marks: This dress came to us with the designer label and original price tag detached. This slinky siren could use a dry-cleaning to brighten up the fabric (it was most likely a sample dress). Price: $650.00

Sophia Titanic Era Gown

Pure white cotton lace. Perhaps a satin ribbon about the waist? Envision yourself playing croquet or badmitten under the branches of a blossoming cherry tree. Tea anyone? Oh the romantic daydreams never end...(pictured with a silk slip, not included)
Beauty Marks: Exceptional condition, but I must mention one thing...underarm stains are a pet peeve of mine and they have no business showing up on wedding gowns! This dress has the faintest tinge on both arms, but fortunately it is not visible unless the fabric is bunched up into a ball--the netted nature of the fabric allows the coloring to appear pure white, throughout the dress. If worn with a slip which has white sleeves, then the spots may be noticeable. That said, I would not hesitate, myself, to wear this gown on my special day.
Price: $750.00
