Sharing behind-the-scenes snaps from our vintage bridal pop-up with @handmegownsbridal + @maybellenyc on march 18, 2023.
Hand Me Gowns bridal opened last spring as an eco-friendly alternative to dress shopping. All dresses onsite are up-cycled - worn once by a bride or rescued from a showroom or sample sale!
Read more about Caitlin's incredible mission to cut waste from the wedding industry + how lucid ladybug helped curate some of her vintage pieces in the shop!
Maybelle NYC "sustainably upcycles beautiful vintage pieces so your unique beauty will shine on your wedding day." Christine uses deadstock/recycled fabrics to reimagine your special dress or mother's gown for your big day!
It was inspiring to meet fellow brides who feel as passionately as we do about vintage + upcycled styling.
The special bonus of the day was trying on my Mother's wedding gown from 1991 for Christine to reimagine + sketch.
It was so special putting my Mother's gown on - I couldn't believe all the intricate lace detail. Trying the gown on + flipping through my parent's wedding album - I found my wedding style in alignment with my Mom's... 32 years later!
Cheers to #rebelbrides consciously opting to elevate their weddings with vintage treasures + heirlooms!
Be well, Meghan
