Choosing to accessorize your wedding gown with a head piece will definitely add a bit of vintage flair to your look. A hat worn by a bride dates back all the way to the 1500's. Whether you have an heirloom piece that just needs a good cleaning, something to restyle or a new piece to pair with a vintage gown, it is something that you can make your own and what a statement that will be!
Below are some images of current hats we have in the boutique. The first is believe it or not, not true vintage...I know. I was fooled at first.

The Bride is not the only one who can wear vintage to their wedding! Vintage cocktail and formal gowns are not only affordable, but one of kind and Earth friendly! Ask your maids to stick with the same color and length and let them start the search for that amazing dress for your you special day!

I cannot tell you how refreshing it is to see brides choose a non-strapless wedding gown. Don't get me wrong; there are plenty of gorgeous strapless gowns out there, but it has come to a point now that they are expected.
Some benefits to a non-strapless dress are that it adds a sophisticated touch, and it is not necessary to add a necklace.
Pictured above, Bailey is modeling a vintage 1970's wedding gown that has been reconstructed to appeal to a modern bride. The sleeves were removed allowing her beautiful shoulders to show. It is has thin cut out and is accented with tiny pearls and floral lace. It is waiting for you in the boutique to come try on!

Whether you love vintage clothing, furniture, or pottery, you'll agree with us that the unexpected finds are often the very best!
A few weeks ago, a lovely lady showed up at September's Bride with two vintage bridal gowns, saved from the bridal store that her aunt owned in the 1960's! The tags are still on the gowns. One of them is a fabulous little number with spaghetti straps and a short-sleeved bolero and attached train that is worn over the gown. I've taken a few snapshots here to share with you.
Unfortunately, the gowns are a little discolored, so I am working on restoring the color and freshening them up before adding them to our Vintage Couture Collection. Once they are ready, they will be available for sale on this blog and at September's Bride.
