I finally got around to taking some decent photos of my satin wedding gowns. I've posted a whole album to my Facebook page which you can view here. I'd like to share a few highlight photos here. These wedding gowns are just gorgeous in person, even with their little flaws here and there.

1940s Beaded Bow Wedding Gown
Please pardon the vacuum cleaner and other junk in the background! These gowns took up a lot of room and it was hard to get a good shot without some stuff showing up in the pictures.

I really like this shot looking up from the end of the train.

 This lovely gown does have some condition issues. I'm told this gown came from a woman in Vermont whose mother wore it for her wedding in Boston in 1941. Apparently the train had been longer. The story goes that just before the ceremony the train was shortened to accommodate the bride’s father who was having difficultly walking his daughter down the aisle. There is some soiling around the hem but that should come out with dry cleaning.

Vermont Liquid Satin Wedding Gown
 There are a few slips seams in the bodice but those are an easy fix.

This one is not listed but will be in the future. :) It needs a little TLC but the details on this are so lovely. If you simply can not wait for the listing send me a message and I'll gladly email you the details for this gown. I have two more satin wedding gowns still waiting to photographed - another killer 1940s gown with bead work, long train and peplum bodice and a really nice 1930s bias cut gown.

  1. Oh my word, I honestly feel like I need to catch my breath after looking at these sublimely lovely wedding dresses. There isn't a single one here that isn't a dream dress for me (if I wasn't already happily married, that is). I can just picture how stunning the lucky brides who get to wear them will all look.
