Recently I had the pleasure of welcoming Daughters of Simone onto The Natural Wedding Company directory, an online vintage wedding dress boutique based in San Francisco, California. Set up and run by the lovely Brittany and Christy, Daughters of Simone offers a beautiful collection of one-of-a-kind vintage wedding dresses all with a bohemian feel to them.
All of the wedding dresses are vintage by origin, but Brittany and Christy love to look at a gown and see the possibilities it has – many of the gowns are reconstructed to have that contemporary feel to them.
Naturally, I was bursting with excitement to showcase their current collection of wedding dresses and I’m thrilled that readers of The Natural Wedding Company can claim a 10% discount on any purchases made until Sunday 15th July 2012. Daughters of Simone ship all of over the world, including the UK (our very own TNWC bride Emma bought one of their clutch bags for her wedding).
All the dresses below are currently available from Daughters of Simone, but please note they are one-of-a-kind dresses and therefore once they are sold they are gone, so if you see one you love make sure you order it soon to avoid disappointment.
Here are some of my favourites…
Alma – boho vintage wedding dress with crocheted-lace lines and delicate sleeves
What Brittany says about this dress: “One of our personal favorites, a striking boho white vintage wedding gown. Crocheted-lace lines the sleeves and bust area, skirt expands out like a fan. One of the most beautiful features of this gown are the sleeves, which billow out in the wind. A total one a kind piece, and sure-to-be head turner for the lovely bride that wears it!”
Kathryn – an ivory-white vintage wedding dress with a crochet top
What Brittany says about this dress: “Lovely ivory-white vintage wedding dress with crochet lace top. The length extends to just above the ankle. The fabric of the skirt is chiffon.”
Rose – a low-back lace vintage wedding dress with delicate sleeves
What Brittany says about this dress: “A 1970′s short sleeved ivory lace vintage wedding dress. Full skirt, beautiful low back, with lovely ruffle at the bottom. Fitted waist, zips in the back to fit. An absolutely stunning gown!”
Colette – vintage wedding dress with billowy sleeves and intricate lace detailing
What Brittany says about this dress: “Lovely white nylon dress with intricate detailing from top to bottom. Beautiful billowy sleeves with vintage lace on the cuff. Features soft textured lace along the bust and gorgeous lace trim along a low scoop back.” Check out the back of this wedding dress in the image at the top of the page – utterly gorgeous!
