This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
We all know the little wedding rhyme "something old, something new...something borrowed and something blue". The Heritage Bridal Collection is my spin on this wedding tradition.


Something Old

The first part of this set is a vintage bridal gown. To fit this months Elder Theme, I imagined the dress as being a family heirloom passed down through the generations.



The dress has a knee length A-line skirt with a lace corset top. To play up the vintage theme, it features a classic high necked lace cover-up on the collar and down the back.



Since the dress is "passed down", it is available for Adults and Elders.

There are three different channel presets as follows:





If you're looking for something a little more flirty, there is a version without the lace cover up.

This version also has three different channel presets.

Both dresses are in FORMAL only!

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Without the lace it looks similar to my grandmother's wedding dress. I am trying to make a sim of her from when she was 19 and a model, but it has been a pain. This has given me the inspiration to start up again.

What vial?

ETA - If you mean "veil", then that link is for another picture that I decided to remove from the upload post. The veil in the sepia photo is an accessory by Jordy.

It can be found here: http://jordy.dreamwidth.org/8329.html

Not actually evil.

Your "Heritage Bridal" idea is so sweet and touching. Not just CC, but story and warm fuzzies.
