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 the back, for the perfect 1930’s touch.

The headpiece was created by AgnesHart an etsy shop.  The designer Rae creates vintage inspired wedding veils, hats and bridal headpieces from her studio in London.   We chose a period appropriate headpiece and added a birdcage veil to complete the look.

My husband Hayes and I were married on May 21st at the Hotel Saint Cecilia in Austin, TX.

Toni chose our Heritage Couture™ package which allowed us to give it extra care, including removing the buttons on the gown back before cleaning and replacing them afterward.

Toni’s Rebecca Schoneveld  wedding gown had  a dirty hemline and a several spots on the gown that could be food or beverage. Our gentle cleaning removed the dirt on the train, and the spots on the gown. We also cleaned her shoes and preserved both the shoes and headpiece/veil in a separate preservation box.

Toni and her family will enjoy these truly heirloom quality pieces for years to come.  Get a free quote for your expert wedding dress preservation today.
