All the details are stunning – the American and French Chantilly lace, the horsehair edged ruffles and the dropped asymmetric waist. Claire’s Wedding Dress Preservation Claire’s Rivini ivory...

Exquisite 1930s Vintage Wedding Dress Replica

By Toni Urban My dress was a replica of a vintage 1930s gown that I was enamored with, but was too stained and fragile to be worn (see picture at bottom of page.) Now that I look back, maybe I just should have sent it to your team for restoration! I took a few photos to Rebecca Schoneveld, a bridal designer based out of Brooklyn, NY, as she already had a few beautiful bias-cut silk dresses in her collection and I knew she and her team would do an incredible job.  And you can see she really did; she also added a train, and buttons down...

Wow! Catie Transforms Mom’s Wedding Dress

By Karen B. I was the first person to wear this wedding dress. I purchased it in Virginia in 1985 for my wedding in August of that year. The veil was a family heirloom and was 100 years old at that time. I tried to match the color and the lace of the veil when I selected my wedding gown. My daughter Catie M. 30 years later decided to re-purpose my wedding dress for her wedding in September 2015. We had the dress completely taken apart and reassembled in a more modern silhouette. We were lucky to work with a talented...
