Elegant Vintage Wedding Dresses

There are several different styles of vintage wedding dresses. The vintage lace wedding dresses are very popular choices for most designers now. Brides love the simple detailing of the lace on their gold, champagne, or pure white dresses. This detailing can very well spell the difference between overly simple and elegant dresses. The trend is veering towards necklines that are either scooped low or built in high in lace. This gives an illusion of a slimmer more enhanced neckline. The brides look taller and leaner with this kind of cut.

Vintage has not brought back bulky. You can expect to see heritage wedding gown styles in fabric, which has a sleeker effect. Satin, silk, and even velvet can be seen from time to time on vintage wedding fabric and dress restoration. Or you can go for short vintage wedding dresses. Who ever said, vintage meant endlessly long dresses? There are absolutely no hard and fast rules when it comes to vintage wedding dresses. In fact, the short look works really well in combination with the classic touch. Lace, taffeta, ruffles, bows, classic cuts, delicate detailing,  there’s so much to pick from.

Did you know that it was Coco Chanel who introduced the concept of short wedding dresses in the 1920s, and once it was done, it was done! Brides took to the concept so well, that there was no turning back. Except for the slight lull in the 1930s, this trend was here to stay. If you give it some serious thought, a short wedding dress screams practicality! You can dance your heart out, and it can be modified and worn again. Whether you choose to work with something fitted, or something with more body is entirely your decision, because no matter what you pick, it’ll look good either way.Imagine a classic fitted dress made entirely of satin and an overlay of some vintage looking lace. Get it in a length that hits just a little above the knee and complete your look with some really classy shoes, and you’re good to go with this style. Another option could be something more out there… While the first option was a more elegant look, the second is about going all out and girly!! A snug bodice with a high waist made of lots of delicate details along with the lower half resembling a skirt with a lot of volume, this portion of the dress could be done with heavily bodied fabrics like taffeta (not everybody’s thing!) or perhaps even organza. As long as you know how to work it, this dress will look perfect. What makes it better is, if you are going ahead with a summer wedding, or maybe even choosing to have a beach wedding, a short dress will just be so convenient and make so much sense.
