Victorian inspired wedding dresses

I am so, so excited about showing off these beautifully new wedding dresses from The Vintage Wedding Dress Company because I think you’ll love them as much as me.  It was literally it was love at first sight when I spotted them.

The Vintage Wedding Dress Company are well known for their incredible collection of original antique wedding dresses, but they’ve also branched out into their own collection of vintage inspired gowns, and their newest designs have my heart aflutter.

There is a massive fan base out their for 40s and 50s style wedding dresses, and more recently 20s and 30s inspired, but what I really love are the older dresses, Edwardian and Victorian era and I’m delighted that The Vintage Wedding Dress Company have bought out a few new designs with these eras in mind.

Join me as we step into a fantasy world of exquisite wedding dresses…

Victorian style lace empire line dress #1

This incredibly feminine Victorian inspired dress is made from Chapelle lace over soft satin and has an empire line.  Again, there is a wide range of styling additions that you can add to make this dress exactly how you want it, for example long lace sleeves or there’s even a shorter knee-length version if you want something a bit more modern.  Take a look at TVWDC website to see a few other examples of this dress.

TVWDC have already brought out a tiered Edwardian inspired wedding dress that I featured last year, and I know it was extremely popular with my readers.  Well here is the latest incarnation and it doesn’t disappoint, with Beaton lace over soft satin in delicate tiers and capped sleeves.  For more images of this dress check out TVWDC website.

Victorian style lace empire line dress #2

Described as Trousseau lace over slipper satin, this beautiful Victorian inspired dress can be kept simple or accessories with details to make it more elaborate.  Like all of the Decades Collection from TVWDC, this dress has a number of styling additions, including lace and chiffon sleeves.  Here it is shown with a beautiful sash, but take a look at TVWDC website to see it in its simple form.

I can’t imagine three more perfect dresses for a relaxed country wedding!  However, I know that lots of lace and the more old-fashioned style isn’t for everyone, so I’ve also selected of couple of my other favourites from the new collection…

1930s style bias cut slip dress

What a simply elegant and sexy wedding dress this is – I would love to be able to pull off something glamorous!  It looks like it would accentuate all your beautiful curves and leave you feeling like an old Hollywood screen siren for the day.  It’s made from Slipper satin and comes in both ivory and white.  If you check out TVWDC website you’ll also see an example of this dress with lace capped sleeves.

1940s style bias cut dress with button detail

I couldn’t resist sharing this 1940s inspired wedding dress simply because of that incredible feather skirt.  Wow!  This dress is actually quite a form fitting dress, but here it is accessorised with a feather overskirt – so you could have 2 dresses in 1.  Perhaps you could wear the simpler, pared-down version for your wedding ceremony, then add the feather overskirt for the evening reception?  Do take a look at the additional images of this dress over on TVWDC website.

1950s style strapless dress with circle skirt

I know I said I like to represent the 1900s wedding dress styles, but this pretty 1950s strapless dress is made all the more interesting when paired with the matching Polonaise Organdi jacket from TVWDC.  For me this lace feels quite folky and unlike anythign I’ve seen when it comes to 50s style wedding dresses.  If you’re interested in the wedding dress without the jacket, check out TVWDC website for more pictures.

So there you have it, six heavenly wedding dress from the new Decades Collection from The Vintage Wedding Dress Company.  If you’d like to try on their dresses you can make an appointment to go to their London showroom – this is also where they have their original antique wedding dress collection.

There are also a number of boutiques around the country who stock their Decades Collection, so take a look at their list of other stockists.

Hi MarisholHurley, this was a bridal collection from 2012 so I’m not sure if this dress is still available. The Vintage Wedding Dress Company is now called Charlie Brear and you can find all their available dresses here
