Vintage Winter Wedding Inspiration!

It's possible by now that you're beginning to plan your Winter wedding for next year. There's a lot to think about between now and then but we all know one of the most important aspects for any bride is what she's going to wear. For Winter brides this can be even trickier as many slinky, low cut dresses and flimsy fabrics available to brides just don't say "Winter wedding".

A vintage wedding dress could offer you everything you've been searching for.
They are often made of heavier, sumptuous fabrics like lace, brocade and rayon. Add to this details such as high, illusion top necklines and long sleeves allowing elegant coverage for those cold Winter Months.

Even if you have a modern wedding dress you can add a touch of vintage glamour and vital warmth with a 1940's stole or 1950's beaded cardigan. The right accessories will enhance your beautiful dress to Winter princess heights!

Take some inspiration from these original vintage photographs followed by a some of our own Dirty Fabulous Winter worthy dresses....

I also attended a bridal show last week at a local event venue. Wedding inspirations over there were truly amazing and I have gathered loads of ideas for my big day from that event. I feel now I am fully prepared for my special day.
