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…

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.

This pretty vintage dress made in the late 1970’s would make a beautiful wedding dress for someone having an understated wedding or a couple who are eloping.  If Mr Rigg and I had eloped this is what I would have worn, in my mind it inspires dreams of spending a summer living on the edge of a prairie.  It costs around £20 and is available from Coldfish Vintage.

A 1950’s floral lace wedding dress with 3/4 length sleeves and a long train – this dress is romantic and you can almost imagine it on a fairytale princess.  I would carry a bunch of blousy old-fashioned roses or a spray of wild daisies.  This dress is from deLightly Used and costs just under £200.
