Federal drug investigation leads to wedding dress bargains
News from WSB Atlanta:

Some happy brides are counting up their savings Wednesday afternoon.
 
Channel 2′s Linda Stouffer explains how a federal drug investigation is leading to wedding-dress bargains.
 
Bride Jackie Crenshaw feels like royalty with the price of her dream dress.
 
“All of them I looked at are $ 175,” Crenshaw said.
 
Even though many retail for almost $ 2,000, all these white and cream beauties are less than $ 200 at the Martin Luther King Jr. Federal Building in downtown Atlanta.
 
The dresses were seized from a shop during a drug money laundering investigation.
 
“You can’t beat this — $ 175. These dresses are like a thousand dollars are more,” Crenshaw said.
 
Bride-to-be Shawn Whitman fell in love — twice.
 
“You’re buying two?” Stouffer asked.
“Yes, for the price of $ 175 you can get two,” Whitman said.
 
Kevin Stallings, General Services Administration, told Stouffer the wedding planning is good for taxpayers, too, since the money goes back to the U.S. Marshals Service.
 
The special sale goes through Friday.
                       
Crenshaw is saying “I do” to embroidered flowers, sparkles and more savings than she expected.
 
“I’m ecstatic that I came,” Crenshaw said.

It’s time to say goodbye to the wedding industry’s most unnecessarily …
News from Quartz:

A few months ago, I was downsizing my possessions as part of an experiment in minimalism. Like many women, my most copious source of possessions was my wardrobe, complete with its crown jewel—my year-old wedding dress.

While my decision to donate the dress was a relatively easy one, I quickly realized that my desire to reduce my waste was not shared by all of my friends in family. In fact, following a blog post documenting my decision, I received several emotional responses from family and friends Most of them pleaded with me to keep dress. “Anything but the dress!” they cried.

I guess I shouldn’t have been so surprised.

The traditional American wedding dress is one of our society’s most iconic guilty pleasures, especially for members of the middle and upper classes. There are very few other items which society tells us we can acceptably spend loads of money on, wear only once and expect to never use again. It is consumerism par excellence.

Gay Couple Still Manage To Have White Wedding Dresses On Their Big Day
News from NewNowNext:

Deri Rogers and his boyfriend Ben Wood aren’t much for doing drag, but they still wanted a white wedding gown at their recent nuptials. So they decided to ask their bridesmaids—all ten of them—to wear wedding dresses in lieu of the usual tacky bridesmaid frock.

“Being a gay wedding we weren’t going to have an amazing gown reveal” Rogers, 28, told Wales Online. “[But] I figured every wedding needs a wedding dress—so why not ten?”

Each woman found her own dress on eBay, and was able to pick something she’d probably never wear on her own wedding day (and for a fraction of the cost).

“You could say the girls stole the limelight but we wouldn’t have had it any other way,” says Rogers.

Deri and Ben’s best “man” Sadie introduced the pair back in 2013, but Deri admits “nothing really came” of their first date. Months later they got back in touch and things spar…………… continues on NewNowNext

Jennifer Aniston’s wedding dress photos are fake
News from Naked Security:

It’s a backless, V-neck, trumpet mermaid chiffon bridal gown with a train of ivory white that looks big enough to consume the slower-moving variety of flower girls – and the Jennifer Aniston Fans Facebook page wants you to join it as it melts in admiration.

Over the weekend, the Facebook page shared this wedding dress picture along with the message:

You have my whole heart for my whole life. #‎WeddingDress

Just one problem. Even though the woman wearing the dress is blonde, like Aniston, and her back is to the camera, it’s not Jennifer Aniston in that photo.

Truth be told, there are a few more problems. For one, even though Aniston did, in fact, marry Justin Theroux recently, that presumably wasn’t the dress she wore – I say “presumably,” because no photos from the wedding have been released.

We know that this photo isn’t of Aniston because the photo is actually one from the

Saskatoon brides trash wedding dresses to raise money
News from CBC.ca:

A group of brides got together this weekend to trash their wedding dresses.

As part of an annual fundraising event Trash the Dress, six brides met with seven photographers for a unique photo shoot.

“This idea with it is this: it’s all the stuff you wanted to do on your wedding day but you couldn’t do it,” said one of the professional photographers involved, Grant Romancia.

The Saskatoon fundraiser began six years ago by one of the six photographers involved in the project, Mandy Harding. 

“She had heard of people trashing their dresses so she thought, well, she’ll go and trash her dress too,” said Romancia.

The following year, a group of six photographers including Romancia and Harding decided to recruit more brides to take part in the trashing to raise money for charity. The other photographers were Danielle Stasiuk, Gina Yesnik, Vanessa Savage, and Lisa Krystchuk.

This year, the group raised over $ 25,000 for the Children’s Hospital Foundation of Saskatchewan.

Stoughton wedding dress reappears after gone for decades
News from Wicked Local Stoughton:

Marcia Boland-Wells took a step back in time when Next Step Living came to her house.

Workers from the company were re-insulating her roof last October when they found Boland-Wells’s wedding dress from May 1969.

It is remarkable that the dress survived intact after being boxed in the attic for 45 years, but what makes the dress remarkable is the love that went into making it, family members said.

Boland-Wells said he had not seen the dress since she moved into her Stoughton home, and had forgotten all about it, until the workers showed her the dress.

“I was like, ‘Oh my God,’ ” she said. “I always wondered what happened to that wedding dress.”

Boland-Wells and her mother, Anne, went shopping for wedding gowns back in 1969, but the beaded ones were very expensive. They bought the one that was later found in the Stoughton attic. Boland-Wells’ mother hand beaded the dress and train with hundreds of tiny pearls and seed pearls, according to her niece, Felice Cohen, a writer living in Manhattan.

Cohen was inspired by the story of the dress and her paternal grandmother’s handiwork.

$ aving Bucks finds discount option for wedding, prom dresses
News from Bucks County Courier Times:

Cindy Christman, the owner of Infinitely Yours Flowers in Bensalem, knows that every young girl dreams about the dress she’s going to wear on her wedding day.

But through her work with brides at the flower shop, she learned many women couldn’t afford that special dress.

So she expanded her business, opening Angelina’s Bridal Boutique next door. It’s an upscale consignment store offering designer dresses at discounted prices.

The shop, which opened in February, offers hundreds of gowns at lower-than-retail prices. Many still have price tags on them.

The bridal boutique boasts a collection of dresses designed by the likes of Maggie Sottero, Alfred Angelo, Justin Alexander, James Clifford, La Sposa and Anjolique. Prices for these finds range from $ 200 to $ 2,800, Christman said.

“Our mission is to provide upscale formal wear at affordable prices, providing a means for past brides to receive a return on their investment and paying it forward for future brides to love that once-worn treasure on her special day,” she said.

Brides who bring in their once-worn dress must get it dry-cleaned first, and it’s only added to the store’s collection if it’s in “perfect condition,” Christman said.

“Then, she gets 50 percent of the sale and we receive 50 percent.”

WATERVILLE — Ann Walter, owner of Anntie M’s Attic in Waterville, stretches out a delicate bridal veil from the 1920s. The lacy-net head adornment is square-shaped and has a headband decorated with baubles made from cotton balls covered with silver foil.

The veil is among the wedding gowns, handkerchiefs, shoes and other bridal accessories Walter will transport to the Blue Rapids Museum for an exhibit showcasing items associated with weddings.

Woman Claims Huntington Dry Cleaners Lost Daughter’s Wedding Dress
News from CBS Local:

HUNTINGTON, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) – A Long Island mother claims her dry cleaners lost her daughter’s wedding gown.

In February, Susan Davis said she went to Evergreen Cleaners in Huntington to pick up her daughter’s Jesus Peiro beaded wedding gown.

Instead of getting back her daughter’s dress, the cleaners gave her someone else’s gown, Davis said.

“The woman who actually does the wedding dresses said, ‘I remember doing your daughter’s,’ but they just didn’t seem to have records that could help us locate my daughter’s dress,” Davis told WCBS 880’s Sophia Hall. “I guess as soon as people pick things up he wipes things out of his computer.”

Davis said someone likely picked up what they thought was their wedding dress but never looked inside the box and just put it away in storage.

She hopes that person opens up the box, sees that it’s the wrong gown and comes forward.

Historical Society offers wedding gown showcase
News from Post-Chronicle:

NORTH HAVEN >> Weddings and all things wedding-related have always had a certain universal appeal.

Thus, members of the North Haven Historical Society are inviting residents and others to dust off those old wedding pictures and dig that gown out of storage as they present, “Brides through the Ages,” a wedding gown showcase Sunday, May 31, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Masonic Lodge, 30 Church St.

“We have found that everybody has a fascination with wedding gowns,” said Ann Clark, a member of the Historical Society who is helping to organize the event. “It’s amazing how many of them have been saved.”

Clark, who has preserved her own wedding gown, notes that all three of her daughters have also saved theirs.

“It’s amazing how the styles change,” Clark said. “It’s fascinating.”

Event organizers plan to set up a wedding gown display comprised of borrowed gowns belonging to residents and others who wish to loan theirs for all to see and enjoy. Photographs are also welcome. All photos will be scanned to a cd then returned to their owners. A video collage will scroll throughout the event.

As an added attraction, several members of the Garden Club have volunteered to research typical floral arrangements to coincide with the vintage dresses.
