Union Made Bride. Owner/designer Alex Sandra specializes in making, restoring and restyling vintage dresses up to 1968 with an emphasis on union made in the USA. For me all these dresses are a testament to true vintage elegance . . .Above: A classic bridal gown--an hourglass with nipped in waist in Chantilly lace.

This netting over taffeta gem above reminds me of something a young Judy Garland or Deanna Durbin would have worn in one of their films circa 1940s . . . .
Eyelets like the one above have always been a stylish option for summer brides and garden weddings; they're now making a comeback with the smaller, more intimate backyard wedding on the rise. Defined, eyelet is a light to medium weight cotton with cutout patterns of embroidery along the border. Pictured above, it is a classic summer time favorite for informal brides.
