I have to confess. I’m not your typical bride-to-be. Rather than get all excited and giddy at wedding preparations, the thought of having to deal with all those details makes me break out in hives! Well, there is one detail of the whole wedding planning ordeal that gets me rather excited: finding the perfect dress.
Yes, you heard me correctly: I said vintage. I’m THAT bride. You know the one who doesn’t mind wearing a dress that someone has already donned. Consider it “something old”. Vendors like J. Crew, for example, or Bhldn (a personal favorite) carry lovely vintage dresses - and lots of other styles - that hearken back to Gatsby-era days.
