The clock is ticking, I have something like 126 days until my wedding and I couldn’t be more calm. Maybe it’s all of the lavender I’ve been smelling, as I want to use it for table arrangements, it’s said to relax and calm you. I’m still making mood boards for my gown. I now plan to make two: a long, filmy ceremony gown, and a party dress that still says “bride”. Check out my latest inspiration from the 20s, 30s and 40s….
And away we go!
This silky 1930s Madeleine Vionnet gown has the butterfly sleeves I’ve always adored. They make square, broad shoulders (like mine) look softer and more feminine.
A lace Art Deco gown with bell sleeves from the 40s…
A soft and demure wedding gown by azdaja made for a friend from vanilla colored chiffon and wide satin sash that ties in a big bow at the back.
I am contemplating a plunging back and have been stuck on how, exactly, you’d drape one. This head turning 1930’s evening gown in black and silver lame has a pretty back.
What do you think about embellishments? Silk flowers? Gertrude Lawrence in a pretty gown in 1931 pulls off the look flawlessly.
This type of embellishment makes me go gaga. Pictured left, a luxurious 1920s beaded gown and right, a unique white eyelet lace dress from early 1900s.
The Vintage Wedding Dress Company makes old gowns new. So soft and feminine…
