Vintage Wedding Gowns on Etsy

1970s Victorian Lace GownBuying vintage is trendy and very eco-hip. If you are planning a green wedding, vintage wedding gowns are very popular. Many cost a fortune at specialty vintage stores and vintage wedding gown sites but I just found a couple on that are super reasonably priced. They are simple and elegant and might be perfect for the bride planning a simple and sustainable wedding.

Many of the gowns I found were not too old, mainly from the 60s, 70s and 80s but in good shape. There was a 1920s flapper gown but it isn’t wearable

There is a simple gown from the 70s or 80s, a 1960s Emma Domb gown, a pretty 60s or 70s gown, a 1975 wedding dress and an older Victorian gown. My personal favorite is the 1970s Victorian Lace Sax Wedding gown, absolutely beautiful.

You never know when or where you may find a fabulous deal. Etsy is known for being the greatest place to buy handmade goods, but they also sell a lot of vintage stuff. Check it out you may find a wedding treasure waiting for you.
