  • I tried on vintage wedding dresses! I think you all know I am slightly obsessed with weddings haha! I always thought it would be so cool to try on vintage wedding gowns. I got to try on some beautiful wedding dresses from the 30's-70's. We went to the stanfordville antique shop to test out these dresses!

    Oh guys. She wore it the wrong way. Pretty sure it should of been the other way around. The last dress. The v shape that was sown down there and the flower down the middle those were meant to frame her butt. Plus did you not think it was weird having straps out front but none in the back.

    I think the weird stomachache thing on the last dress was more than likely a design choice to help hide an early pregnancy. I might be wrong.

    The "flower thing" on the back of the second dress would have a loop that goes on your finger so you could dance with that train.

    I feel like the last dress had the flower discreetly placed to hide the original wearers little bump maybe. It's just a really oddly placed detail otherwise.

    Take the horrible flounce off the dress at 5.01 and you have a rather slinky nice silk fact most of these dresses would look fine with a little judicious 'pruning'.

    I wore my mother's wedding dress. She was married in 1947. It was eggshell satin, long pointed sleeves and all those little buttons down the back. She worked so hard to afford it. We definitely got our money's worth. The newspaper even did a huge article on my 1947 motif. I've been married for 44 years to my high school boyfriend...yes, kids and grandkids. Life goes on but I will never forget wearing my mother's beautiful gown. ◇♡♡◇

    The bundle on the long dress that you really like is for you to hold onto while you dance at the reception

    I want a 1950’s style wedding dress. But I will have to wait a while considering that I’m only 13.

    The '70s lookiing one' is just like one I wore to the Junior/Senior ball at my high school in 1966. Only mine was dark green.

  • Kai K

    hey, so older vid I know... but the last one is cut the same way as the 1930s "Siren Gown" of bias-cut satin... the flower across the stomach was most likely created to conceal a small baby bump, and the dress itself may well be from a later decade for a bride who simply enjoyed the Monroe vibe. The neck detail with the extra ribbon straps, isn't something I've seen before in that decade, which is why I'm thinking "30s inspired" and not "1930s vintage." Certain fashions in the late 70s and early 80s harkened back to the 20s and 30s, so it might be newer than you'd think. :)

  • Laycee None of your beeswax

    the first one that Em tried on was my favorite

  • Krystal Dispatch Bettty Mcginty Carter

    4th dress was 20's and my favorite. As a vintage collector and restorer, I will say, Brianna should not have zipped that dress up if it didn't fit her. When I had my shop, I had many dresses destroyed by girls playing dress up and trying to cram themselves into dresses that didn't fit. Fabric and stitching deteriorates over time. Repairing a torn vintage gown is no easy task.

  • Krystal Dispatch Bettty Mcginty Carter

    First dress was late 50'd, early 60. Second was 40's. 3rd wad early 30's.

    the last one u tried on was a 1930s dress cut on bias. very typical for the 1930s. i am a tailor and fashion is my game for the last 25yrs. also that was not 1970s dress with the blue ribbon. that was late 60s empire waist. im so sick of strapless wedding dresses of today. we need to let it go and move on. i have made 6 in the last 5yrs. i vowed if somebody ask me to make another stupid strapless dress im saying NO!! lol i have a huge collection of vintage patterns starting from the 1920s and made a wedding dress and bridemaid dresses from 1950s patterns in raw silk. they turn out fab! very nice fresh change from strapless dresses!!!!

      Teresa Palmer I’m asian we typically wear sari or lengha for weddings. If I had to have a western dress I’d go for something with arms I think it looks beautiful stunning elegant. It seems as though everyone wants to be sexy for the entire congregation. On a well known reality show that’s all I hear I want to look sexy 🤨. I know I’d rather look beautiful and my husband would see me as sexually appealing anyway. I actually hate armless wedding dresses especially the typical ones where the bust is cut like a bra top. Apparently designers do armless simply because it’s easier for them is that true?

    Here where I live in California there are lots of vintage wedding dresses at the veteran thrift stores. And other thrift stores too. Most are silk. Rarely you can find one in its box with crown included.
