If you are a romantic person or just a creative person and want your wedding to be remembered for a long time not only by you, but also by your guests, then you should make it stylized. Pirate, gangster, rock weddings — all this is quite complicated and does not bring proper satisfaction to anyone, unless, of course, people live this in everyday life. Therefore, think about a retro wedding, especially since vintage dresses are just in fashion!
What does a vintage dress look like?
Nowadays, vintage clothes can be considered those that were fashionable from the 20s to the 80s. 15 years ago is still modernity, but 20 years ago is already a bygone era. Your choice is practically unlimited and in the fashion of this time you will surely find your style. By the way, the word “vintage” came out of the lexicon of winemakers. It is clear that such a wine was called a drink that had lain down, ripened, became tasty, bright, unique. A bride in a vintage style dress, like wine, will turn her head and evoke the most pleasant emotions.
Vintage dresses are original, luxurious and insanely feminine. In addition, you will be interested in choosing accessories, inventing a hairstyle, buying shoes — the preparation itself will be the beginning of the wedding action.Where can I get a vintage dress?
This issue is not for the lazy.
- Antique shops are not available in all cities; rather, they can be found only in large ones. Therefore, for starters, delve into your memory and remember which of the older adults you could borrow it from. Mom, mother’s friend, grandmother’s niece — but you never know those who are happily married and keep their wedding attire, they say, they don’t need it, it seems, but it’s a pity to throw it away.
- If you have not found such a person, the Internet will come to your aid, where a vintage dress can be found at auctions or in designer online stores. But this pleasure is not cheap. But then you will be a star at your own celebration. And beautiful, well-fitting clothes, as you know, cheer up, increase self-esteem.
- In search of the desired attire, you can also “rummage through” antique shops. Don’t be discouraged if the dress doesn’t fit — you can hem it to fit. The main thing is to carefully inspect it for defects or stains. And if you find them, do not rush to wash yourself. In past years, fabrics were “not accustomed” to modern thermonuclear powders and bleach. It is better to give it to dry cleaning — professionals will do everything at the highest level and you will not have to regret the damaged item and mood.
- The easiest way is to order a replica of the dress you like. You will spend a certain amount of time looking for fabric, lace, jewelry, but you will definitely be sure that the dress will fit perfectly. To create a replica, you will need a good quality image, it is better if it comes with a description. It is with her that you can turn to the master, who will help you solve the problem of choosing materials. Such an artificially aged dress will look no worse than a designer version.
In addition to the main outfit, you need to think over a lot of little things, because you need to pick up shoes, jewelry, even underwear, it is also desirable to think over. If you have an accommodating groom, then it would be nice to pick up a vintage suit for him too, or at least add vintage accessories to his look. Don’t forget to remind him of the style of the bouquet. By the way, you can also make it easier to choose a dress for a bridesmaid: an image in the style of past years will complement the image of the heroes of the occasion.
Let your wedding be cheerful and bright, photos — original, and family life — long and happy.
