Etsy Wedding Dresses with a Difference

I just love wedding dresses; I run a small bridal shop from my home where I sell custom made dresses. I love the gorgeous dresses with hoops, poofs and ruffles and can relate to the lovely brides who are aiming for the “Princess” look for their special day. However, as a self-confessed Hippie, I must say my true bridal love comes in the form of dresses with a difference. I love vintage styles and have recently started experimenting with my own range of vintage reworked dresses. Ok, well I have reworked one dress but I was so happy with how it came out that I have opened my own Etsy shop – check out Kinks Bridal on Etsy ( My aim is to source vintage dresses and clothing, I will then re-work with these garments to recreate beautiful one of kind wedding dresses. I would love to hear your thoughts and comments on my first reworked dress! I have priced it at $180 on Etsy. You can view more pictures of this dress on my Etsy shop.

Here are my favourite Etsy Wedding Dresses with a difference from some uber talented Fashionistas:

1. Clare La Faye’s Bohemiam Beauty

My first favourite dress is by a designer named Claire La Faye – check out her Etsy store. I just love this Bohemian inspired gown, it sells for $3400. There is so much attention to detail and it is different without being over the top. How cool is the veil in this picture – very different yet so appealing!

2. Boho Wrap Dress

Next up we have this sensational Boho Wrap Dress by Simones Rose Boutique. This dress sells for $450. This dress is perfect for rustic or destination weddings! This dress is made to order with your choice of silk chiffons or other fabric selections. I love the simplicity of this dress.

3. We ALL love LACE with GRACE

Last but certainly not least on my list of favourites is this gorgeous dress by Grace Loves Lace. Her range of lace dresses is absolutely breath taking. This Bohemian spirited Ivory dress has French lace flutter sleeves and a stunning low back. The sleeves double as an off-the-shoulder style or can be worn on. This dress currently sells for $1200.

Well that’s it, 3 of my favourite dresses on one Hub Page. When choosing a dress, brides need to ensure their dress doesn’t overshadow them. With these dresses, you can make a statement yet remain classy and elegant.

I would really love to hear your feedback on my own reworked vintage dress so please feel free to comment below or complete our poll on this page.

Much Love,

The Hippie Housewife
