'Vintage' wedding dresses

Posted on 29 August, 2012 at 4:23
As a bridal designer  who specializes in Vintage and Vintage-inspired gowns, I am very aware that when a Bride-to-be tells me she wants a 'Vintage wedding dress', this usually means one of four things.

She's looking for
1. An authentic Vintage original from a particular era.

               Vintage original late 1920's                                            Vintage original 1956

2. An authentic reproduction of a gown from a particular era

3. An original design with style elements from a particular era

                                                                   Original design influenced by 1950's styling

 Original design with edwardian styling details        Original design with 1930's style elements

4. A lacey, romantic dress, with a nostalgic feel ( No specific individual era)

In another blog post, 'What is Vintage', I discuss how I use the term 'Vintage ' on my website, because Vintage 'officianados' are quite particular about that sort of thing, but most bride-to-be s, in my experience, are not.

Sometimes you just know you love it.

The attachment of lace is an ancient idea but still it has a cool appeal to the people so wearing a lacy dress is a nice concept. I'm pleased to see the beautiful brides and the sketches, too. Thanks for an awesome collection of vintage wedding dresses.
