We’re about to head into engagement photo season. Insert the gauzy shots of couples smiling at each other, and the photos of folks holding hands in the park, with the engagement ring showing just so.

If we know Offbeat Brides at all, we know that y’all adore all things vintage, and that’s especially vintage-styled wedding fashion. Combine all that with a (totally healthy!) love of all things 1920s, Downton Abbey, Edwardian, Flapper, Gatsby, Titanic, and Victorian … and we know that some of you are going to flip over these dresses!

We’re no strangers to charitable registries — they’re some of our favorite ways to channel funds to awesome organizations (and so you don’t end up with a bunch of stuff you don’t even need!). If you’re a bibliophile who loves to support your local public library, this wedding registry concept is stellar.
Instead of that traditional gift registry, you can easily create a wedding charity registry in support of The New York Public Library!
