Expect to see 1920s vintage wedding dresses making a big impact on wedding fashions this year thanks to Baz Luhrmann movie adaptation of The Great Gatsby and a renewed interest in a style that (nearly a century on!) continues to epitomise romance.
The 20s style gown is a look that suits brides that love the Flapper era – an era when young women started to become more liberated and adventurous – and their fashions followed suit.
The ethereal and elegant style of this era reminds us of languorous garden parties and late night cocktails. Perfect for a summer wedding. What are some features of the 1920s style wedding dress?
20s style gowns are noted for their flowing, swishing and stunning silhouettes of fabrics that drape beautifully, teamed with luxurious embroidered lace and delicate bejeweled features. Brides can accessorise with lace, feather and sequined head pieces, T-bar shoes, long strings of pearls and classic make-up (think big eyes and cute pouts!)
Gowns can either be short and daring or long and figure-hugging with a gentle floor sweeping hem line. Other features might include dropped waist lines, tiered skirts and low backs.
How do you find a 1920s vintage wedding dress?
One way to find yourself a 20s gown for your big day is to scour every vintage shop in the country, or spend countless hours searching online vintage stores. But even if you do find something special you have to consider the toll that the years might have taken on the dress in the form of tears, stains and general discolouration, as well as the fact that trying to find a dress in the right size could prove difficult.
You might find a gown that after a few alterations will fit you perfectly, but you still feel the design is somehow off or just does not suit you. That will probably be because, although you love the vintage look and style of your dress, you cannot help but long for something a little more comfortable.
By having your vintage style gown custom made for you by a wedding dress designer you will have everything you love about the 20s style – including the luxurious fabrics, exquisite details and quirky statement pieces that make it so unique – expertly crafted just for you.
Your designer will create the gown to suit your figure and personality while still including all of the little ‘20s style details that you love.
