A dark blue Liberty print and antique lace wedding dress full of Jane Austen beauty
At the point in my life when I got married (nearly 2 years ago now!) I always knew I’d wear a traditional wedding dress in the sense of it being white/cream/ivory. I do however love coming across alternatives to the pale colours of the traditional wedding dress, and part of me wishes I was the kind of bride who wanted to wear something unique and different.
When I came across this stunning bride in her dark blue Liberty print and lace wedding dress I was instantly in love – perhaps it’s that romantic part of me that loves to dream of ‘days gone by’, but it just completely bowled me over with its Jane Austen beauty.
The dress was custom made for the bride using a limited seasonal prints called Isabella Grace from Liberty fabrics, along with antique lace. Isn’t it just heavenly! I also adore that coffee coloured sash around her waist that tied in a huge bow at the back.
Wedding dresses can be so magical, so hold out for that one that is really ‘you’. If your budget allows have one made for you – I’d like to think we can bring back that tradition of handing down heirlooms through our families, and what could be more lovely than your great-great granddaughter discovering the dress worn by her great-great grandmother all those years before?
Wedding dresses are one of those things where we can let our fantasies and childhood dreams take us away a little, if that’s what we want them to do.
