As a heart of the wedding ceremony, the wedding dress should be astonishing, making the bride look like a princess and feel natural while saying ‘I do’. Nowadays designers return to vintage to bring back the past sense of elegancy and naturalness.
Lace, rhinestones, satin, pearls – that is a real formula for success. Vintage wedding dresses are shiny, often high-collared, knee-length or long with voluminous or simple lace skirts. Black ribbon, red bow and pink embroidery are a common component. The models often make a liberal use of bright and dark elements.
The most popular silhouettes come from the 1930s and 50s. The real temptation in the vintage wedding dresses of the 30s lies in luxurious trimmings. That decade created a trend for the astounding seed and bugle beads embroidery. Still, a close attention now is given to the dresses of the 50s.That very decade gave birth to very feminine and romantic models, demonstrating figure and good taste.
