Vintage Wedding Dresses

Sheesh, where does the time go?   I just realized I haven’t posted for several days and over half the month is gone!  Since June is the most popular month for tying the knot, I thought I’d post some photos of vintage dresses that would be perfect for creative fashionistas who are entertaining the idea of a vintage themed wedding.

First up is this exquisite vintage ivory satin gown by Ceil Chapman.  For sale at Old Clothes.Com.  A petite size-32b 24w. Such a unique, special dress, it’s worth starving yourself to fit into it!
