A bride's big day is a major occasion indeed, so it seems fitting that she'd want a unique look for such a momentous occasion. Going vintage is a great way to secure an ostensibly one-of-kind piece for a wedding. That said, it's not necessarily as easy as going the modern route—the hunt for The One can be arduous (albeit thrilling), but don't let that deter you. We're here to hopefully make the process a little easier. Ahead, we're spotlighting eight of the best shops to score a simply sublime vintage dress for a wedding.
This revered online marketplace sells everything from antique furniture to rare art to designer fashions—including wedding gowns. Find a range of pieces spanning everything from "no name" labels to vintage Yves Saint Laurent couture. (Be warned: It's easy to get lost for hours on end on 1stdibs.)
This premier bridal boutique on Sunset Boulevard in L.A. soft-opened in fall 2016 and has been a fashion-girl favorite ever since. Carrying designer labels like Halston, Oscar de la Renta, and Ossie Clark, the store houses a host of vintage treasures from the '50s to the '90s. Note that the boutique is by appointment, so request one online.
Okay, so Stone Fox Bride doesn't technically offer vintage goods, but its collections are so inspired by decades past that we found it deserving of a spot on this list. (Note: The label is taking a break from selling S/S 18 dresses to focus on a special, undisclosed project but should be back in action thereafter.)
If you're looking for even more unconventional wedding dress options, we have you covered too.
