Honoring My Mother – A Restoration of Heart

A Vintage Wedding Dress Story by Ginger S. I found my mother’s wedding gown in a plastic garment bag, rolled up and tucked in a plastic bin. My mother bought the dress in 1969 for $163, according to a note she stored with the dress. Jean Ellen Finn, my mother, wore this dress when she married my father, Rodger Dale Miller, in Santa Barbara, CA on November 15, 1969. My mother was a military wife, and this dress remained packed away in bags or boxes and traveled across the country for many years. She had a family to raise and ends to...

1800’s Scottish Heirloom Christening Gown

The Story of a Heritage Piece by Barbara B. This christening gown was brought to America from Paisley, Scotland by my great-great grandmother, Janet Hume. She was born in 1839. I can only assume that my great grandmother, Nettie Fitkin Bennett, also wore the gown. My grandmother, Myrtle Coates, would later wear the family heirloom gown in 1882. Our Christening Gown Keepsake Box The box that was used by my mother and possibly my grandmother to store the gown. My Aunt Alice Aldrich Wearing the Gown in 1914 I...

Something Old-Something New-Something Satin-Something Blue

A Vintage Wedding Dress Story by Chelsea I purchased my vintage wedding dress on Etsy. The listing for the dress didn’t leave much to be desired; the satin gown with box pleats, beaded lace appliques and modest train. It was beautiful but it was wrinkled and yellowed from age. At $32 (I’ve never been one to pass up such a great bargain) I purchased it anyway! The day it was delivered, I asked my mom to come over and help me try on the dress. Much to our surprise, it fit like a glove and we both had the bridal moment...

A Carol Hannah Collaboration Creates An Unforgettable Gown

A Wedding Dress Story By Hannah H I came across Carol Hannah’s two-piece Anthorium skirt set on Pinterest years before I had any intention of getting married but I saved it to my secret wedding board, just in case. When my (now) husband and I got engaged, we were living in New York City which conveniently is where Carol Hannah’s studio is. I reached out to schedule an appointment and told them what I was interested in. They sent back the preliminary pricing on the Anthorium skirt and my heart sank. I went into wedding...
