Monday’s Finding: Eye Candy: Gorgeous Antique Bridal Gowns

Today’s Monday’s Finding is pure eye candy. If you love antique textiles, handmade lace, beautiful bustles, or previously loved articles of wonder, you are going to LOVE this post. Seriously, I even made myself SQUEE! when I pulled this post together.

I love antique textiles and fashion. I can spend hours upon hours perusing such sites as vintagetextile.com and antiquedress.com. Very few current gown designers nowadays use such exquisite fabric, beading, pleating, handmade lace, and intricately detailed materials and techniques any more. Each dress is a work of art, many bespoke and unique to the bride for which they were created. One of the gowns below even comes with pictures and the marriage certificate of the bride!

So, here is a gathering of 12 gorgeous antique gowns. Perhaps you might consider purchasing one of these wearable works or as inspiration for your own bridal ensemble. Enjoy!
