Brides, grooms, bridal parties and wedding guests who have a love for all things vintage can extend the looks for bridal ceremonies as well. These South Florida thrift, vintage and consignment shops have incredible finds from decades past to create truly special moments. Even the accessories can be found from the jewelry to the veils and shoppers from all price points can be satisfied with bargain store options and even luxury vintage looks. It’s important to try on vintage apparel and accessories as sizes have changed much over the years to ensure proper fits. Shoppers should keep in mind that tailors can work wonders in many cases to get that perfect fit.

The Consignment Bar

5580 N.E. 4th Court, Suite 4A
Miami, FL 33137
(305) 751-9996
www.consignmentbar.com

The Consignment Bar is the place to find dresses to wear to attend weddings or even for the bride for less traditional bridal looks. The shop offers only luxury apparel and accessories from names such as Chanel, YSL, Gucci and Louis Vuitton. Because it’s a consignment store, the merchandise changes frequently so it’s a great idea to check back often. This shop is located at the popular 55th Street Station and operates daily.

C. Madeleine’s

13702 Biscayne Blvd.
North Miami Beach, FL 33181
(305) 945-7770

For the bride, groom or wedding guest looking for plenty of options, C. Madeleine’s is definitely a great stop on the shopping route. The vintage warehouse is a sprawling 10,000-square-foot space of incredible fashion looks from decades past and many of the looks are from designer houses. The store’s merchandise is so impressive that famous celebrities such as the Olsen Twins are known fans. Everything from dresses and suits to bags and shoes can be found and the knowledgeable staff can be of great assistance as well as the store owner herself, Madeleine Kirsh.

Goodwill

6842 S.W. 40th St.
Miami, FL 33155
(305) 661-4222

Goodwill is a wonderful place to seek out vintage finds at great prices. Sometimes wedding dresses can be found in store and there are also items such as accessories that may be appropriate for bridal occasions and dresses not designed for weddings but that may be worn for such an event. Shopping at this non-profit organization supports a good cause and a socially responsible company that hires individuals with disabilities and special needs. The apparel and accessories in store change often so it’s another good place to check back often.
