 The Vintage Bride

BELL OF THE BALL from Making a Comeback Hello Fashion Diggers!

With the summer season now in full swing, here are some alternative suggestions to the current bridal industry offerings out there... you know you need "something old" to complete the traditional refrain!

Orlando Vintage has a glorious beaded gown for that Ginger Rogers wannabe out there - white and silver, oh so subtle - why not go for it? If beads are your thing, but the gown dripping in crystal is too much, grab this beaded clutch with an imbedded frame from Paris and you'll have a little something to stash all your things in.

Making a Comeback posted a sweet late 1950s-early 1960s satin gown that would satisfy any Audrey Hepburn fan.

Gloves, gloves, don't forget the gloves... cream, ivory, or white for the perfect demoiselle finish for the walk up the aisle.

Of course, Ellen Christine Eclectic has headpieces, old and new. Be sure to check out the vintage hand carved wax tiara.

Perfect for trimming your shoes - or a novel idea to trim a sash, or your bouquet - AnniePanties lists a superb Victorian set of abalone buckles - keep one for yourself and give one to your Maid of Honor as her share- the-day gift to remember you by.
