GET READY FOR AN ANTIQUE WEDDING DRESS

Inspired by vintage style, a lot of brides-to-be want to follow the trend of wedding fashion. So choosing a precious antique gown is necessary for the most memorable moment. Since you have been dreaming of your wedding day for what feels like forever, you deserve to feel every bit as special as you can ever imagine. An antique frock is the old collectible item which is collected or desirable because of its age, beauty, or other unique features. At this point, the idea behind a vintage wedding dress is that it’s one of a kind – from every lace frill to each embroidered floret.

Antique dress

Including formal and informal dresses in styles that range from Victorian to Preppy, primarily from the 1940 – 1990’s, you will feel free to choose a fabulous Antique dress or a gown that looks vintage. Several of timeless designs of wedding dresses are just as popular and pretty as the old days. Brides-to-be who are drawn to vintage have a spectacular sense of style that adores a look from the past and a unique personality that makes an outstanding statement on the wedding. For this most important event of your life, when only vintage will do, an antique dress is here just for you. It is very lucky to find a gorgeous authentic vintage gown that fits well because every authentic gown is unique and hard to alternate.  Speak of vintage dress, there are some distinct such as diamond, lace and embroidery. These dresses are often made from excellent quality fabrics (raw silk and rayon) which are one of the reasons that they are being collected.

Accessories

After finding the perfect vintage gown, brides are ready to choose appropriate accessories to match the era and style of the dress. Since the antique gown has more decoration details, the accessories should not be overstated anymore. Simple jewelry, like a pair of pear earrings, will add more feminine glamour to the bride. But if you choose a Deep V-neck or backless gown, a luxurious necklace will make the look perfect. Most of vintage dresses are half-sleeved or long-sleeved which save the trouble of wearing gloves.A vintage wedding dress captures the feeling of decades past and adds the glamorous touch to the bride. Get ready and make the timeless vintage look on the wedding.

 

The Wedding Dress Hunt Begins

The Wedding Dress Hunt Begins

The wedding dress hunt has begun. First stop London’s Browns Bride where I was told I was the smallest bride she’d ever seen and that my fantasy designers Oscar de la Renta (below) and Valentino were “not for my size”. Despite that rather abrupt start – which is exactly what you need if you’re ever going to reach stage two – Sam really knew what she was talking about and hauled out some beautiful, spot-on gowns (as I was rather struck dumb) by Monique Lhuillier, Carolina Herrera and Peter Langner which fitted to perfection. Well, with five clamps at the back.

The Wedding Dress Hunt Begins

The Wedding Dress Hunt Begins

Nothing prepares you for the first time you see yourself in a wedding dress; afraid to breath, eyes innocently wide at the image. Adding a veil is almost too much visual significance to take – you’re a bride! It’s astonishing how quickly this feeling dissipates – after gown four you’re a hardened, seen-it-all-before critic with a deadline to meet.

The Wedding Dress Hunt Begins

The Wedding Dress Hunt Begins

First tip; although I’m a big fan of slipping on something over budget to gauge the benchmark, always ask the price on seeing the gown. We’re Brits, we don’t like talking about money, but please don’t do what I did and stand looking at the one (a full-skirted and heavily beaded Carolina Herrera) from all angles for 35 minutes before discovering it’s £9,000. Ditto the Monique Lhuillier and also the Peter Langner (above) at £12,000. It’s hard to recover from that rollercoaster.

Second tip; don’t stand on the little stage to view the dress. Of course we all look miles better with acres more leg but it’s an unrealistic vision.

On to the Vera Wang shop at the newly opened second Browns store on Brook Street (nothing gained from previous budget concerns). Katy is wonderful and gets me immediately. Just not sure if Vera does. Wang makes unquestionably gorgeous gowns with form-fitting corsets mixed with romantic, deconstructed skirts (below). They’re surprisingly comfortable, you could waft and dance to your heart’s content. I need to work out whether I want to waft freely or glide stiffly…

One gripe; why don’t bridal shops have 360 degree mirrors? These are expensive boutiques and we’re spending the most we’ve ever spent on a dress yet we’re looking at our back view through a handheld mirror – the back being a marginally important angle…! You get a 360 degree mirror in BHS for goodness sake. Most odd.

I have two more days of dress shopping booked before I seem to have ticked the London box and consumed as many holiday days as I’m willing to spend. I’m finding plenty of beautiful gowns for three times budget. Panic!

Bridal Fashion Week S/S 2014

From dramatic ball gowns to airy, ethereal confections, New York Bridal Week spring / summer 2014 served up an endless parade of wedding dresses to inspire. Here’s a round-up of the most note-worthy looks…

Monique Lhuiller spring / summer 2014

Ever the crowd-pleaser, Monique Lhuiller showed a broad spectrum of styles ranging from the clean and crisp to the beaded and lacy.

Sweetly simple 1960s inspired shift suits and cocoon styles were ripe for the registry office while frothy, silk organza dresses and lacy prom styles proved going short doesn’t have to mean missing out on the fun.

Lhuiller also experimented with new veiling techniques, working lace overlays into removable cape styles or fashioning waterfall tulle bustles to create the illusion of a full length veil.

Elsewhere, soft, unstructured dresses with intricate beading harked back to the Art Deco era, while classic princess gowns were updated with sculpted bodices and stiff, asymmetrical peplums.

Vera Wang spring / summer 2014

The fairy godmother of bridal loves to court controversy, spurning traditional ivory for gothic black for Fall 2012, bold crimson for Spring 2013 and, this season, monochrome, with strict leather accents…

As ever, the epic, high drama ball gowns Vera Wang has made her name with were in heavy supply and featured characteristic modern flourishes – like this pretty tulle skirt paired with an edgier monochrome bustier.

Bodices were typically fashioned in black, some with strict asymmetrical straps. One particularly striking look, for which bold brides need only apply, featured a central skunk-like black panel through the bodice and the skirt.

Peel off the fetish leather gloves, however, and the rest of the collection was a little less “editorial”. Highlights included a deep V-slashed bodice combined with a peplum waist, and fishtail gowns finished with larger-than-life lace motifs.

Temperley spring / summer 2014

Alice Temperley’s vision for spring/summer 2014 proved a little more accessible.

Shopping for The Dress: The Vintage Wedding Dress Company

Every girl hopes that shopping for a bridal gown will fulfil all her cinematic fantasies of champagne, weeping friends, and a genuflecting sales assistant as you emerge from the plush changing room breathing ‘it’s the one’.

Unfortunately, it doesn’t quite work like that for everybody. My experience was fast and furious: a fisticuffs sample sale in uptown Madrid, a sales assistant shouting at me in Spanish, a quick dart back into the changing room to sneak in one more dress to try, and then the quick decision that it fit nicely and was really rather beautiful. In the bag, and off to the cafe for a celebratory cortado with my mum and my sister.

However, if you are shopping in London for your wedding dress, there is one place that I urge you to try for that ultimate rose-tinted bridal experience: The Vintage Wedding Dress Company. With an elegantly white washed loft show room just off Tottenham Court Road, VWDC is a treasure trove of vintage wedding dresses carefully chosen by founder Charlie Brear and her team of experts. Gowns range from Victorian-era lace confections all the way up to Studio 54 slinky Seventies gowns via liquid silk bias cut gowns from the Thirties and flirty minis from the Sixties in between. If you haven’t a notion what style of dress you want for your wedding, this is the best place to start.

You’ll be welcomed by one of the company’s extremely competent staff (a special mention here goes out to the amazing Jess, who looked after my sister for her wedding and is a wizard at telling what will suit your shape and style) and then you’ll be led into an elegant changing room and given a vintage silk kimono to wear between trying on dresses – a lovely touch. The staff really know their stuff and know exactly what alterations will work with each gown you try on. Not only that but they’ll style you up with exquisite antique hairpieces, fur stoles and decadent piano stoles so you can really get to know what works for you.

So popular has the vintage wedding look become that Brear launched a range of wedding dresses inspired by each decade, and these are just as spectacular as some of the originals.

It’s by appointment only, so be sure to book well in advance.

 

Amazing Short / High-Low Wedding Dresses

Short wedding dresses have long been the perfect thing for a tropical or beach wedding. There are many good reasons to try a wedding dress with a short skirt that goes beyond mere fashion.For one thing, there is dance.
A radical dress you look beautiful when you swing a little distance from left to right, but short wedding dress you can really cut a rug at your reception.
At the other end of the spectrum coordination, remember that a wedding dress that tea-length or higher drastically reduces your chances of taking a header if you walk down the aisle.
