Marry-Makers: 8 Stunning Vintage Wedding Gowns For The One-Of-A-Kind Bride

Weddings are all about the details. Each and every aspect, from the table settings and invitation to the veil and shoes, is incredibly important. So, naturally, the wedding gown has to stand out from its carefully curated surroundings. But, what if you don't want to buy an off-the-rack, cookie-cutter dress? If you seek a frock that's truly one-of-a-kind (without needing to trade in your honeymoon for a dress down payment), then vintage is where it's at.
Of course, we wouldn't just tell you to go retro-dress shopping without offering a look at some of our favorite picks, so we've cherry-picked eight beauties for inspiration. Featuring a flapper-style gown from the '20s and a pleated and beaded pick from the '60s, among others, our selection highlights wedding gowns that would make a bride feel even more special than she already is.
