Vintage wedding dress

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
