Wedding Dresses & Bridal Accessories

For their wedding day, some women go all out, opting for classic wedding dresses in traditional white and sheer-illusion transparency. Others create one-of-a-kind sophisticated looks with high-style couture fabrics. And some turn to the past with vintage wedding dresses and vintage bridal accessories for a throwback experience.

Whatever the style, women around the world wear dresses and accessories for their weddings that are, even if only for the moment, uniquely their own. This is fitting for an unforgettable, once-in-a-lifetime event such as a wedding.

Women seeking unique and vintage pieces for their wedding dress or bridal accessories often turn to auctions. Short of scouring the closets of relatives, vintage bridal auctions are the best source for finding something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue for the occasion.
