Are you planning a vintage wedding? Vintage-inspired wedding dresses are perfect for brides with strong individual style who want to stand out from the crowd. Many bridal designers have been looking to the past for inspiration, so finding a retro-inspired gown for your vintage wedding is easier than ever before. Wearing a hand-me-down gown from a friend or relative is good in theory, but the wedding dress might not be in good shape, or it might require costly alterations. The same goes for authentic vintage wedding dresses—you might unearth a hidden treasure at a secondhand shop, but it will require a lot of searching! Thankfully, you can find plenty of brand-new gowns that borrow from previous decades. Many vintage-inspired wedding dresses have been tailored for the modern bride, so they offer flattering silhouettes with classic charm. Sweet necklines and heritage fabrics like French lace are just some of the reasons vintage-inspired wedding dresses are popular with today’s brides. Not to mention that the best thing about vintage-inspired gowns is that they never go out of style! You’re guaranteed classic wedding photos that stand the test of time. The Spring 2013 runways were rife with beautiful vintage-inspired wedding dresses. Here are some of our favourite options for you to consider for your vintage wedding celebration!
