A few seasons ago my all time favorite wedding photographer Erich McVey did a styled shoot with model Courtney Bryant on the Oregon coast. Courtney wears Portland designer Claire La Faye's stunning blue-grey wedding gown poetically named Swan Song. The images spawned a flurry of interest in colored bridal gowns in both my bridal boutiques. Oh yeah…did you know I own two bridal boutiques?
Claire's dresses are featured at my beautiful downtown bridal shop The English Dept. I highly recommend you come by and check them out.
However, if your heart and budget is set on a vintage wedding dress, Xtabay has some really beautiful and budget friendly options…..
This 1950's pale blue tulle prom dress would make a lovely wedding dress and even came from the old bridal salon at Meier & Frank. It most likely served as a bridesmaid dress in the 50's but today would make a beautiful wedding dress. Available to purchase in our here in our Etsy shop.
The color blush pink has been really popular in bridal for a few years now. This ethereal 1950's evening gown would make a beautiful bridal dress! Sold.
I love this little 1950's tiered dress with lilac sequin sprinkles on top, it would be adorable for a garden wedding! Purchase here in our Etsy shop.
Rachael tries on a robins egg blue lace wedding gown in the palatial Xtabay Bridal dressing room, really it's bigger than my house. Details here in our Etsy shop.
