We have some fun and exciting ideas around vintage style wedding dresses that we’d love to share with you. So read on, and maybe you’ll find a few great ideas for your own dress!
Creating a vintage replica can be a fun and exciting experience. Whether you are modeling a dress after a famous star, or you loved your Grandmother’s dress that has disintegrated over the years, making a replica brings the old into the new. You have the advantage of changing some details where you would like, while keeping the overall style. Also, many vintage dresses prior to the 1940’s were not white, therefore, if you desire a white dress, making a replica will allow you the style in the color you desire. When having a vintage replica dress created, make sure to put thought into the undergarments as well. Often times undergarments would show at edges to provide additional details, as well as creating the shape, which can be quite unique to some time periods.
If you like the look of vintage style wedding dresses, but still feel attached to the look of a more modern dress, then you don’t have to go completely vintage. Modern gowns with vintage details and aged looking multi-tone whites provide a perfect fusion between yesterday and today. An edgy modern dress with structured lines and details could be beautifully offset with contrasting vintage lace details, creating a harmonious blend of style.
If you are wanting to use Mom or Grandma’s gown and you have access to it but it’s not in perfect condition, or you aren’t happy with all the details call on a custom dress designer willing to make a mash-up , using pieces of the old to create something new. The dress can have a look that uses several elements from the old dress to style the new. You could also use just a few pieces to make a vintage lacy bow on a modern simple dress.
Vintage style wedding dresses are a fun and popular look for 2011 weddings. They are great for including family memories in your wedding as well as adding a beautiful feminine style from the past.
