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 inspired wedding dress with Chapelle lace

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.

Reverie Magazine eco-chic wedding

This morning I got totally wrapped up reading the new Reverie Magazine, and was particularly excited because the River Cottage wedding (that featured on the TV series) with the edible bouquet was featured.  Not only was it lovely to see photos from this wedding because it was exceptionally beautiful and captures everything I love about natural weddings, but it also featured two of the businesses featured in the directory.

The wedding jewellery was all ethical and Fair Trade, with some of it coming from April Doubleday, who features in our directory.  In addition to the wedding, there was a page called ‘Get the Look’ and this featured April Doubleday again and also The Vintage Wedding Dress Company (with my favourite Edwardian inspired wedding dress).  Do take a look at these two fabulous businesses and also have a read of Reverie Magazine to see the River Cottage wedding (page 112 if you’re wondering!).
