I’ve been thinking about wedding dresses a lot lately, as I just attended my best friend’s wedding in Montana last weekend. While she briefly considered going for the popular Threadbanger $10 wedding dress, she eventually settled on an amazing handmade and vintage-based gown from Georgia shop Hippie Bride. She looked unbelievable in a gown made from several vintage lace tablecloths and handkerchiefs. Last week, I featured my favorite vintage dresses from the web and today, I’d like to spotlight some awesome handmade gowns. If you or your friends will be getting hitched soon, please consider going the vintage or handmade route – better for the environment and such a unique and cost-effective choice!
