Each item has to do with good luck for the bride to have a happy marriage.  Something old represented the bride’s family and her past.  Something new was the hope for the future happiness ahead.  Something borrowed was usually something from a friend who had a happy marriage, and meant they could count on their friends, and something blue pertained to purity and fidelity.  The sixpence was to signify wealth and financial security.

When thinking of what your items will be, make sure you choose things that mean something to you.  For instance, the 1840 gold piece in the picture has been handed down to the oldest daughter in my family on her wedding day since 1868.  I was the last recipient, and my daughter will be the next “holder” this year.  This piece represents more than a century and a half of history for my family.  The other pieces such as a special piece of jewelry or maybe a hankie could be a thoughtful something borrowed (or something old for that matter!)

A few months ago, my oldest daughter accepted her boyfriend’s proposal, and as a family, we began the journey of wedding planning.  After beginning to research options, we found great options for some aspects, and next to none for others.  Thus began my quest to start a service dedicated to helping brides (and others needing formal dresses) find fabulous prices on quality gowns.

Our budget was revised numerous times, and after doing hours and hours of research, I came up with ideas that metamorphosed into this business.  The look on my daughter’s face when she found “the dress” will forever be etched on my mind, as I’m sure many memories will over the years to come.

I’ll explore options with brand new dresses, as well as vintage pieces that can be changed into one-of-a-kind masterpieces.  It’s all about that special day and the feeling a bride has of being so beautiful and in love..

I’ll post pictures, along with measurements of the dresses I have found that are available for purchase.  If you find something in which you’re interested, contact me for an appointment, and you can visit my home studio to try on the dress of your dreams!  Or, if you’re not local, don’t let that stop you!  I have a UPS account, and I know how to use it!
