Vintage touches with a modern twist thrown in. Here's some of the best of vintage chic out there and a few tips for brides looking toward a retro look. Most Vintage clothing stores stock ‘retro-inspired’ selections that are brand new. The bride in love with a particular era of clothing usually checks vintage clothing stores before salons. Not all brides opt for an actual gown that survived her favorite era though. Some choose a newer style reflecting the period in natural fibers. That bonafide 1925 chemise may be so delicate, without proper restoration it could literally fall apart. Think of gowns belonging to the ages like you would certain antiques: some so precious to be considered museum quality.
