One of the most interesting trends in the wedding industry in the last few years, has been the introduction of vintage and antique additions to most phases of the wedding. The biggest addition has been the inclusion of vintage and antique wedding gowns, veils, and wedding hats as the bridal wardrobe.
It has long been a tradition of brides to wear the family heirloom wedding dress in their wedding, possibly the wedding dress of their mother or grandmother, or another close relative. However, if a bride did not have a dress in their family, most brides would then go out and buy a brand new wedding gown to be married in.
This trend has not gone away, but increasingly, for many reasons, brides are turning to vintage wedding apparel to fill their needs for a beautiful, unique wedding gown for their special day.
