Jenny’s Wedding Dress Preservation Preserves Memories of Husband

A Wedding Dress Story By Jenny Jenkins I purchased the gown in a little boutique type shop in Washington, North Carolina in 2001. I married Ron Jenkins in his home church in Milwaukee, North Carolina. It was a very simple wedding on Easter weekend. It was a beautiful April day. Ron was a musician, poet, and writer. My husband died of cancer last October and I’ve been cleaning out my house to sell it and move in with and take care of my aging and ailing parents. I love the dress and hope you can help me restore it to it’s original beauty. Click on images to...

Justin Alexander Gown Is Classic Elegance for Ilyse

A Wedding Dress Story By Ilyse Kornblau I first found out about the wedding dress designer, Justin Alexander through Facebook ads. The more I researched him, the more I wanted to wear one of his gowns. My style has always been classic elegance with a 1950-60’s theme. We originally found the dress that I eventually purchased several sizes larger at a bridal store and had written it off. At our next stop, my mom found the dress in my size on a mannequin. It fit like a glove on my petite body. After trying close to fifty dresses at four stores, I knew this was the one. We actually ordered...

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...

The Perfect Malibu Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress Story By Diane S. I purchased this gown at L’elite Bridal on Newbury Street in Boston. My wedding and reception were at Rancho del Cielo in Malibu. I went into the appointment with another gown from the website for L’elite Bridal in mind, but ended up falling in love with my dress immediately. Our wedding venue is essentially an intimate garden overlooking the ocean (best of both worlds, and reflective of Malibu in a really lovely way), and I thought that this dress was perfect for it. I couldn’t have asked for better weather on the day of the wedding. We...

Jessica Wears Timeless Galia Lahav Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress Story By Jessica Jonas My dress is Galia Lahav and part of the GALA Collection. It was purchased at Boca Raton Bridal in Boca Raton, FL. They created a custom under layer for the skirt so that it was lined from the knees down and so that all of the lining matched. It was worn for my wedding on October 21st, 2017 at Up the Creek Farms in Grant, FL for an outdoor ceremony under the oaks and a reception in the boathouse on their property. My photographer, Kati Rosado Photography, really captured every detail of my day and my gown in the most beautiful way. Overall, what I loved...

Rachel’s Watters Wedding Dress from Anthropologie

A Wedding Dress Story By Rachel Goldstein I probably tried on about 50 dresses, or more. There were a few that I liked, but didn’t feel like any of them had enough about them that were unique in a way that I loved. I usually like things that are traditional in a sense, but with some sort of flare. I had come across this champagne blush one online and had to find it to try it on. I called all the stores within a couple hours of me that carried Watters dresses to ask if they had that specific one. I drove about 1.5 hours after work one day to meet a friend and see it in person. I...
