Guide to Vintage Wedding Dresses by Decade

Vintage inspired wedding dresses are all the rage right now–but do you know your options? Here’s your quick guide on how to find your vintage inspired wedding dress by the decade.

Victorian

Victorian era themed wedding dresses are eye catching and dramatic. Off the shoulder sleeves, a structured bodice, and lace along the neckline are signatures. Opt for lace trimmed capped sleeves, a floor length skirt, and some pleats. Satin fabric and a full chapel or cathedral veil complete the look.

1920’s

If the roaring 20’s are calling your name, go for a sheath or fit and flare silhouette with playful details.Bold embroidery, inspired by art deco; dropped waists; beading and feathers and cowl draping are all iconic vintage inspired looks. Select silk or satin fabric and pair with hair piece accessories! V-necks are a great pick, and you can get by with just a bit of lace along the neckline.

1950’s

A 1950’s inspired wedding dress is flirty, fun and femine, with sweetheart necklines, tulle skirts, and shorter veils and tea-length dresses. Tulle and organza reign supreme for a look that’s both playful and extravagant at the same time.

1970’s

The 1970’s were a time of change, and that shows in the adventurous wedding dresses. Embrace boho inspired wedding dresses, with bishop or flutter sleeves, floral lace appliques, bold prints, and flowing A-lines.
