There’s something rather romantic and timeless about the concept of a vintage wedding dress and, with the continuing popularity of vintage and boho styled weddings, it’s easy to see why many brides are on the search for that perfect dress.

Original vintage in your chosen style and size can be tricky to find, but there are many wonderful designers creating vintage-inspired dresses. Let’s take a look at some of our favourite dresses, both original and new.

A dreamy example of vintage style and a great choice for summer weddings with a boho edge, we love the ‘Gal’ design by Inbal Raviv at Luella’s Bridal.

Lace is often associated with vintage wedding dresses, and the back of this ‘Babette’ dress by Belle and Bunty is particularly stunning. Always consider the back of your gown – your guests spend some time looking at your back during the ceremony!

If you’re feeling brave, bare a little midriff in the ‘Ballerina’ design by Vered Giladi at Luella’s Bridal. This dress would be a lovely choice for a beach wedding.

The high street offers some fabulous vintage inspiration. The ‘Cressida’ wedding dress from Phase Eight caught our eye for all the right reasons. At £395 it’s reasonably priced and its elegant design and shorter style make it just the thing for a city wedding.

Go for the Great Gatsby theme with a 1920s dress. An original design from Vintage Lace Wedding Dresses is just the thing for an evening wedding with monochrome colour scheme.
