I cannot even tell you how excited I am to share this styled shoot today! These vintage wedding gowns and accessories from Lacy Dresses Vintage and Whynaught Shop are featured here in four unique looks. Set in a fairytale forest these dresses take on an almost steampunk bridal fantasy look. From a 1910s Edwardian gown to a couture 1950s French gown these styles are certainly anything but boring. Read below for more on each look. Enjoy!
A 1910s Edwardian Embroidered Gown, paired with vintage 70’s lace granny boots. In this look the jewelry is kept simple featuring an antique platinum and diamond wedding ring, paired with a contemporary cabochon glass and silver cocktail ring.
For the Avant Garde Bride. “We wanted to emphasize the layers and textures of Vintage,” says the mother and daughter vintage shop owners and styling team. “From bottom to top our model is dressed in layered bobbin lace bloomers from the early 1900s. On top of this we added a skeleton wire and rope hoop skirt. The shawl is a lush Antique French Normandy lace. To top it all off, we incorporated an 1800s wire coil bustle for the Head Topper. Our prop was a woven stick sphere.”
The quintessential Cinderella Bride. A Couture 1950’s French Gown in oyster colored Silk Satin embellished with micro sequin flowers and scroll pattern topped off with faceted prong set rhinestones for that added sparkle. “We featured this gown on its own as well as styling it with an antique “Show Girl” Ostrich Feather collar with a blue Silk Velvet ribbon tie.” The wedding jewelry is a vintage 1940s “Selro” clamp flower bracelet with matching earrings. The bracelet features a faux cabochon opal center stone with seed pearls and watermelon tourmaline over a gold filigree metal.
A Vintage 1970s Beaded Satin gown with bell sleeves. This gown has all the features of modern mid-century design with beaded floral “Flower Power” pop art embellishment. The white on white keeps the color pallet neutral with added texture and pattern.
