Vintage Brides, Take Notice!

Have you heard of Dolly Couture?


(Edmonton $375)

She offers affordable vintage reproductions of 1950s-1960s wedding gowns, and also offers custom-made dresses!

If I come into money in the next two weeks or so, I am SO ordering one these beauties for my going away dress!

Some of my favourites:

Pasadena $ 599


Los Cabos $375


Manhattan $349


Merin Country $449


So, yeah, umm, I am reduced into a quivering pile of drooling protoplasm.

Check out the rest at Dolly Couture!


Mrs. Shortcake

Wedding Date:

    @AliCherri1: I know! Candy Anthony’s dresses are unbelieveable – but so is trying to get a dress made and fitted in the UK while you’re in North America!

    Funny story – My mom took my sister France last Spring and they didn’t invite me to go to b/c, quote, “they didn’t think I’d want to go” PLEAH-EEES! So my mom said she would take me somewhere I wanted to go and last week I said I wanted to go to England to get a Candy Anthony dress hahahahaha… I think she owes me ;)
    P.S. I totally doubt that is will happen, I’m not that spoiled.

    Shortcake this is one of the most amazing finds I have ever seen. I agree with AliCherri1, they remind me a lot of Candy Anthony, and even Stephanie James. But the prices are much much better.

    Do you think I would have as much fun as the girls in the photo seem to be having while wearing these dresses?

    @jnicholea/thatbride: THANK you so much for pointing out Stephanie James! I hadn’t heard of her and she is 15 min from my office! THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

    i LOOKED AND LOOKED for affordable, beautiful short dresses, and found nothing worthwhile, and then once i order a full length model you show me THESE?!

    i love you, miss shortcake, but you break my heart sometimes.

    @jnicholea/thatbride: I think you would have to – I couldn’t see anyone wearing one of those dresses and not twirling around ecstatically! :)

    @AliCherri1: where were you when I wrote this post, hey, hey?

    Mrs Flamingo wrote about her too:

    But seriously, you better show us your dress is you get one from Anthony/James/Dolly! :D

    I am so sorry, but does it help that I found them after I found my dress too? :)

    @Miss Shortcake: In a hole :( I hadn’t learned about Weddingbee yet, and thus it wasn’t part of my daily obsession.
    Stephanie James sells her dresses at a shop seriously 2 mins from my office too (Mon Amie)! I plan on going over there on my next free lunch break (my birthday is tomorrow so my lunches are filled w/ ppl taking to out right now, I know so sad hahaha) to check them out and touch one :)
