Edwardian style lace wedding dress

I think the Edwardian era must be my favourite when it comes to wedding dresses, or at least the early period of the 1900s.  This blog post is purely self-indulgent because I just love this dress and wanted to share it in all its loveliness.  I love my wedding dress but how much do I wish I could wear this one!

Now I appreciate that these wedding dresses are not within everyone’s budget, but I thought they were too beautiful not to share with you – if only for eye candy or inspiration.  These dresses are inspired by vintage wedding dresses and are covered in antique lace from England and France.

I love that for vintage wedding dresses, which are so often from the 1950’s, these are inspired by the 1900’s instead.  Bring on the real old school glamour I say – I think I must be a real romantic at heart.  I knew I always had a soft spot for a period drama.

These two dresses (on the left ‘Maimuna‘ on the right ‘Helen‘) are from Charlotte Casadéjus.
