When I found this 1940s satin wedding gown, I was lucky enough to also receive the original bride's wedding album. I was even luckier to recently receive photos from the bride's second wearer, who purchased this dress from Inherited's bridal collection last year:

The bride, Tina, modernized the dress by shortening the sleeves, while maintaining the original style of stitching and beading. 

This further supports my love of vintage -- there's a certain romance in two brides choosing a gown to wear on one of the most special days of their lives, each finding their own way to make the dress their own.
