Detailed Description

Abigail’s Vintage Bridal sources the finest original, unique and authentic vintage wedding gowns from around the world. All dresses are meticulously cleaned and restored to their full glory. The collection always has at least 200 original dresses in stock, dating from as early as 1890 to as late as the early 1970s. Every piece is carefully chosen as a wonderful example of period style.

Including exclusive consultation and fitting services, we also offer a comprehensive alteration service, as vintage wedding dresses are not museum pieces and sometimes require gentle tweaking to bring them into line with a more modern taste, without taking away from the essential style of the dress. This alteration service is particularly useful as vintage dresses do tend to be on the smaller side, and were often made to be worn over quite supportive under garments!

Our boutique also includes vintage accessories and shoes that have a truly timeless quality to complete your vintage look. We have a selection of unique vintage pieces from tiaras and headpieces created from vintage jewellery, including broaches, lace collars, fur and veils to compliment your choice of dress.

Finally, Abigail herself is a true vintage bridal expert. Abigail’s passion for the history of fashion started in her youth, most of which was spent watching black and white movies. A historian by training, and with expansive costume design experience in film, theatre, television and designing, it would be hard to find a more qualified expert to guide you through the wonders of vintage bridal wear for your perfect day.
