Every bride wants to look her best on her wedding day. And for many brides, it’s the dress that makes all the difference. Have you considered the thought of wearing a vintage wedding dress?
As someone who loves vintage clothing, I personally wouldn’t mind wearing a vintage dress on my wedding. If I could turn back time, I think I would have tried to find that perfect dress from a past era.
There are many good reasons why you should think about buying a vintage wedding dress. On this post, let’s take a closer look at these advantages.
High Quality. One of the greatest benefits of buying vintage clothing is that most (if not all) have been made out of high quality materials, and with fine craftsmanship. The same is true with wedding gowns. Vintage wedding dresses are made to last a lifetime, and this is why we still see a lot of them today being passed on from one generation to the next.
Unique elegance. There is something about an authentic vintage wedding dress that makes it extra special when worn by a bride. Perhaps the age adds up to its character. It can also be the way it’s been designed and embroidered. Whatever that distinct factor is, any bride is sure to look stunningly beautiful wearing a vintage wedding gown.
Better price. It is not very difficult to find a vintage wedding dress sold at a low price. While there are shops that charge highly on vintage dresses because of their exceptional value, there are also sellers that offer vintage dresses in good to excellent condition at a bargain. You can scout local vintage shops and thrift stores, or check out an online marketplace like Etsy to find an inexpensive and genuine vintage wedding dress. Custom-made gowns with antique lace tend to be very expensive, but I see a lot of lace vintage dresses by independent sellers online at affordable prices.
Diverse options. Choose from any of the past decades to find a style that would flatter your body type and suit your personal taste. If you love the dreamy bohemian, there are lots of lovely dresses from the 60s and 70s era; and if you are more into princess-style gowns, the 50s and 40s boast such charming pieces. Other decades and eras became famous for various styles, so there’s a perfect style for everyone.
