Rebecca’s Love at First Sight Wedding Gown

Wedding Dress StoryBy Rebecca K. “I purchased my dress from Vera’s Bridal in Madison WI. I was going wedding dress shopping for the first time with my mom and sisters.

A 50th Anniversary Wedding Dress Restoration

A Wedding Dress StoryBy: Cheryl F. “My wedding gown story began in May 1969 when I became engaged and started looking for a wedding gown for my November wedding.  I first went to a bridal shop above a jewelry store in Ontario, CA.  I tried on several gowns and found one I really liked but since it was a summer gown, it had to be ordered within a few days.  I couldn’t decide if it was the ‘one’ and wanted to look around at other shops. The deadline for ordering came and passed and I still had...

I Found My Wedding Dress In My Mother’s Closet

Many brides do not plan beyond their wedding day what they will do with their wedding dress.  All the trips to bridal shops, all the trying-ons, the comparing, the consulting, the researching, the altering and the adoring of their precious wedding gown comes to a momentary hold after changing into their “I’m-going-away-to-my-honeymoon” attire. She may have changed in the room of the hotel where the reception was held, or in her own room at her parent’s place, leaving maid of honor, mom or someone else to pack and take care of...
