Hippie Bride

Hippie Bride is True "Cottage Industry". Everything is made by hand in a 1936 red brick cottage, creating ARTful, unique, alternative, vintage inspired wedding gowns & accessories for over 30 years.
"One of a kind" is what Hippie Bride all about. The dresses, sashes and headpieces are created using many repurposed materials ... vintage lace tablecloths, rescued elements from antique gowns, antique and vintage laces of all kinds, trims, baubles and beads. The majority of pieces are made from pure inspiration, but I do occasionally make a custom gown. Hand painting, hand beading, color, leather and feathers are some of the details found in Hippie Bride dresses.
There is something magical about wearing a piece that is just for you alone. How do you want look and feel for your ceremony? I want you to look amazingly gorgeous, but how a dress or anything you wear makes you feel on the Inside is what you will cherish.
So grateful for the gift to create and to be able to share this art with the world. I hope you are inspired to be yourself. After all, there is only one you in this world. My intention is to help you express that. Thank you for spending your time with me and sharing your energy.
PEACE & LOVE, Nina :)
