Vintage Wedding Dress

Buying A Vintage Wedding Dress

Many women want something different for their weddings, and they are achieving this by buying a vintage wedding dress. Vintage wedding dresses are quite unique and something that every bride should consider wearing. You will not have to worry about another bride having worn the same dress at a different wedding. The dresses can be anywhere from 20-60 years old, and it is highly unlikely that there will be many dresses still around like the one you have chosen.

In order to find a great vintage wedding dress you should consider what style of vintage clothing fits you. Women with thicker waists should consider dresses from the 1950’s to the 1960’s, whereas tall women can look great in dresses from the 1930’s to the 1940’s.

Vintage clothing is quite popular because they existed in a time that society associates with life being simpler. Today many of this clothing can be found at affordable prices.

After you have determined the style of the vintage wedding dress you would like to wear, not it is time to find it. You can start looking in the attics or basements of your mother, grandmother, and aunts. They might have kept their old wedding dress nicely preserved and would feel flattered if you decided to wear it.

If you are unable to find a dress in the attics or basements of your family, you should consider going shopping. There are many thrift stores and consignments shops that sell vintage clothing and they might have a vintage wedding dress in stock.

If this is unsuccessful, you can browse garage sales or yard sales in the local community, especially of elderly women. They might still have kept onto their wedding dress and have decided to sell it. Or you can place an ad in the local newspaper requesting a dress in a specific time period that you are looking for.

A great place to look for a vintage wedding dress is online. Many websites cater only to vintage clothing and the people who love them. You should be able to buy a lovely wedding dress at online stores and auction sites that specialize in this sort of thing. Make sure to get as much information before buying the dress. The dress might look beautiful in the picture online, but inquire about the condition of the fabric and if there are any repairs needed to be made.

If you start you search early enough, you will have a beautiful ‘new’ vintage wedding dress for your special day.
