Smitten With Vintage Wedding Dresses

Friday, May 14, 2010
(1900s)
Choosing a dress for your big day is one of the most important decisions. A few of my friends spent months and years searching for the one...As much as we want to say that it's just a dress, we all want to feel special wearing it! I am in love with vintage style dresses because of the story behind the designs. Nowadays I am smitten with those beauties.
(1920s)
(1950s)
Those beautiful images are from The Vintage Wedding Dress Company. The site is a very easy on the eye...and they make sure to categorize the vintage goods by period! How helpful :)
Unfortunately, these lovely dresses are not sold online and can only be purchased by setting up an appointment at the vintage wedding dress company in London, which actually, may not be such a bad thing...Every excuse to travel is a great one:)

It's Friday, my Lovliest....Yupppiiiie

They're beautiful dresses. I've become much more of a romantic since I got married - I didn't even particularly want a wedding dress, just imagine! I'm glad my mother dragged me to a shop to try some on - I ended up falling in love with a Vera Wang gown! I still have it and don't know what to do with it - ah well I suppose it will be "vintage" in a couple of decades' time...!

SO gorgeous! If I could fit into my grandmother's dress, I would wear it in a second. But I'm afraid I'd have to lose an unhealthy amount of weight to do that. And also, shrink.

Vintage is the way to go in my mind. the dresses are more classic and will stand the test of time in the wedding pics! (My biggest worry come time for the big day - assuming it gets here haha - is that I'll look back and be all 'what was I thinking??' instead of 'wow what a great day!')

mina said...

i am in love with that first photo

La Feem said...

So absolutely stunning and refreshing, great post! Hopefully the sun will be shining here and I'll be able to hit the beach. Have fun with your man. xoxo

I love vintage wedding dresses! I feel like they are so much more elegant than trendy, as many contemporary dresses tend to be.

Oh how beautiful these images are!!!! I am getting married in November, and it took me forever to find one I thought was vintage inspired - yet translates to "now." My mom and 2 aunts used to design vintage lace wedding gowns that were sold in Bergdorf Goodman, etc. in NY! So I love dresses like this! Great post :)

Oh, I love how dreamy these vintage wedding dresses are! And after you're done with the wedding, you can cut some length off and make it a beautiful lacey summer dress!
