Were you one of those little girls who dreamt of living in a different era? I was. For a long time I desperately wanted my parents to buy a cottage in the middle of nowhere, and I would wear Little House on the Prairie style dresses and a pinny, and wander round with a chicken under my arm. At least that’s what I dreamt of.
I’ve always loved period dramas, from Pride and Prejudice to Little Women I loved them all and dreamt of wearing those beautiful dresses. I think your wedding day is one of the only days that as an average woman you get to live out a little bit of those dreams and wear a stunning dress – a dress that makes you feel inside how you used to feel imagining you were one of those girls from days-gone-by.
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.
