Priscilla of Boston Says Farewell

It's been a decade & a half since we've been in business, so we don't know the longevity that Priscilla of Boston does. But we do know its posh status as the renown wedding gown company that once clothed Grace Kelly in her 1956 marriage to Prince Rainier of Monaco.

That reputation came to us in hushed tones through our countless purchases of bridal gowns over the years. Upper crust ladies would describe a beautiful gown they had for sale, and would always note "it's by Priscilla of Boston" with a satisfied air.

We can see why - these storied gowns are of exceptional quality, unparalleled both today and in their heyday. They're the stuff dreams are made of. And we have the largest selection of vintage Priscilla bridal wear online, most with original tags attached from the 1950s & 60s.

It's the end of an era for Priscilla of Boston, but their gowns live on at Vintage Vixen, and they'll always have a place in our vintage-loving hearts - and in fashion history.
