BACKGROUND: Way Back When…Historic Bridal Fashions was created from two parts of a business.   For over 20 years, owner Christine Bingham has researched, designed and created historic clothing for museums, re-enactors and historians alike.  The last 5 years found Christine creating modern wedding dresses, reinventing vintage wedding attire and altering clothing in all bridal areas.  Combining the two has created a unique niche in the market for those looking for alternative choices.

Theme weddings (steampunk & goth), historic and vintage fashions, mardi gras, recreating your great grandmother’s dress, men’s fashions that reflect their inner fashionista,  whatever you so desire (as long as it is moral, legal or worth the bail money) we will create your dream wedding attire!   Bridesmaids and groomsmen,  flower girls and ring bearers,   and if they so dare:  parents of the bride and groom!  Artisan jewelry, hats, masks, accessories, books and gift baskets are also available in the shop.


Owner operator:  Christine Bingham
Artist in residence:  Janine Marcoux
*As we cater to a unique market, we do not carry modern wedding dresses and tuxedos.  However, alterations are available.*
