Most of their dresses are made in a natural shade, but all fabrics can be dyed any color you desire. This makes them perfect not only for brides, but also for bridesmaids, mothers of the bride or anyone looking for an outstanding special occasion outfit. They do custom sizing orders, as well.

These are some of the most uniquely beautiful vintage style gowns I’ve seen and I like the idea that they’re made here in the US by a small company.

Heirloom Vintage Wedding Cake Toppers

By

June is the traditional month for tying the knot, so I thought I’d feature some wedding related vintage goodies.  I just happened to stumble upon this spectacular collection  of restored and redesigned vintage wedding cake toppers from a company called Gulden and Brown.    The perfect touch to a vintage themed wedding, these beautiful recreations are sure to be a treasured memento of that special day.

This cupie doll 1920’s cake topper is, without a doubt,  one of the cutest things I’ve ever seen!  Meticulously embellished with tulle, venetian lace, pearls and organza. The porcelain bride and groom are wearing their original chemise and tuxedo.

There are several other heirloom quality toppers, including one in a magnificient gothic style. Unfortunately I was not able to copy the picture of that one.  This website also offers stunning vintage wedding gowns and accessories.
