If you're seeking something that's one-of-a-kind but also ready-to-wear, then step into the glorious vintage emporium that is Days of Grace. Home to an incredible collection of vintage and antique lace, bridal gowns, occasion wear and accessories, you'll find a dazzling assortment of designs to pore over. You can build your ensemble from scratch or select a gorgeous reimagined gown from the in-house handcrafted collection that uses original vintage lace in 'modern sizes', which can be bought or custom-made to suit. Perhaps you'd rather pick up an authentic piece of vintage fashion, or find a unique finishing touch oozing timeless style; whatever takes your fancy, the Budleigh Salterton boutique is the place to be.
Owner, stylist and textiles expert Linda Duriez is passionate about vintage apparel and is replete with knowledge to help you create your look, from recreating era wear to tailoring something from her divine ready-to-wear collection to ensure it fits like a glove and looks like a dream. And with an emphasis on affordability (with many gowns retailing from as little as Â£300), brides seeking something with an edge of boho, debutante or Hollywood glamour need look no further for a fabulously budget-friendly and bespoke bridal look.
Visit the beautiful beachside boutique or browse online to whet your appetite for all things vintage, where you'll find the likes of original Edwardian lace and cotton gowns alongside vintage 70s styles, silk corseted Victorian replicas, embroidered 1920s French lace and a host of on-trend 1950s styles including layered ruffles, lace-up backs, oyster satin and ivory-flocked organza.
