Ellen Wears Heirloom Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress Story By Ellen Dement This wedding dress was worn by my grandmother, Jeweldine, in July 1955. She purchased it at a department store in Athens, Georgia, for about $100. She’s kept it in her cedar chest wrapped in a plastic bag ever since. My grandmother’s wedding gown was restored by Heritage Garment Preservation and worn by myself at my wedding on August 25, 2018. I’ve always wanted a dress with lace sleeves like hers, and I’d looked at a few bridal stores without success. My mother suggested trying on my grandmother’s, and amazingly it fit...

Melissa’s Buyer’s Remorse Turned to Love at First Sight

A Wedding Dress Story By Melissa Martin When I started dress shopping I thought I wanted something simple and understated. I was thinking a sheath with maybe a little lace or just all satin. I actually picked a sexier sheath style dress originally and immediately had buyer’s remorse. Looking at photos I loved the dress, but I didn’t feel like myself in it and I never had that bridal moment where I knew for sure it was the one. Luckily, Marina Morrison (in San Francisco) let me come back and try on more dresses and then I decided that I would come back for the Oscar de la Renta...

Tough Diana Wears Girly Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress Story By Diana Neudorf So, everyone was shocked when I picked what we were calling “the pink dress” while I was at Bella’s trying on different gowns. I am notorious for trying to be tough and never wore pink because I thought it was too girly. But, that was before I met my husband, Jesse. Jesse and I started dating when my son was about a year old and my relationship with his biological father was extremely volatile and toxic. I was more tough than ever after that was over! Or at least I thought so. But Jesse always just loved me. I could be who I was with...

Art Deco Wedding Dress for Rebeccah

A Wedding Dress Story By Rebeccah Baker I was married to Kendall C. Free at the Hast Farm in Cumberland, Maryland on May 5, 2018. I had always pictured wearing an Art Deco style wedding dress, but I was having trouble finding a gown within my budget. Last fall while browsing online I came across a gorgeous fully beaded Deco style dress and immediately made an appointment at BHLDN in Georgetown, Washington D.C. My mom and I went to the dress appointment and picked out a few gowns to try on. The Art Deco gown was the first dress I wore and once I saw it in the mirror I knew I had found the...

Maura Wears Mother’s Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress Story By Maura Buckley This wedding dress was my mother’s wedding dress (1977), and her sister wore it to her wedding too (in 1983 after some additional alterations). My mom had the gown preserved afterwards, and we pulled it out one day after I was engaged to try on for fun. At that time I didn’t know what style I wanted, and she was the one who came up with the idea to alter it to my liking. I was hesitant at first since the original gown had a beauty and class of its own and cutting or changing its style seems like a sin. But after trying on other gowns and not...
