Few things fire the imagination quite like the prospect of a wedding, and for good reason. On the one hand, a wedding has plenty of pomp and circumstance and ceremony attached to it, which is enough to make anyone feel like it’s a momentous occasion. On the other hand, the weight of planning all that out can be a bit exhausting, to say the least.

Customising your bridal look can thus not only provide you with a valuable release during the whole wedding planning process, but can likewise allow you the chance to unlock your creativity like never before. You get to play both artist and canvas and transform yourself into your own masterpiece!

You can give that masterpiece some historical flair by incorporating vintage elements from one of your favourite eras of fashion and culture. From the hairstyle and headpiece to the jewellery and the dress itself, here’s how you can make your bridal ensemble a blast from the past while still making it your own.

Choosing a Vintage Era

First things first - you’re going to have to choose an era. Choose an era you’re truly in love with - and of course, remember that any vintage era’s gown can be set off beautifully by vintage engagement rings which match the style and spirit of the age.

What era of fashion and culture truly speaks to you? Do you thrill to the Sense and Sensibility of Jane Austen-esque Regency Era-themed fashion? Are you more intrigued by the corsets, bustles, and beautiful jewellery of the Victorian-era? Or are you a literature lover looking to evoke the Roaring Twenties a la F. Scott Fitzgerald, or a film buff looking to bring back the Blonde Bombshell look made famous by Eva St. Marie and Marilyn Monroe?

Vintage Hair and Accessories

Next, it’s time to give some consideration to all the little details that can make your favourite era come alive once more. For example, if you’re in love with Austen’s Regency era, you’ll want to pair tight updos and long elegant gloves to match. For Victorian weddings, a lacey-white look offset with opulent earrings, necklaces, tiaras, and Victorian-style vintage engagement rings are all fair game.

Vintage Dresses

And finally, it’s time to say “yes” to the dress itself! Naturally, your dress is going to be the boldest, most definitive statement in your vintage wedding ensemble. One of the most important things to keep in mind with any wedding dress is the importance of matching it to your hair and other accessories. This can actually be easier when shopping for vintage dresses and accessories, since you’re already looking for things that match stylistically and comfort-wise. As such, certain accessory decisions will greatly impact your dress - you can hardly have a slim Victorian dress with a bustle in tow! Likewise, if you plan on wearing gloves for either a Regency or early twentieth century look, you’re going to want to make sure that any vintage engagement rings you have can be slipped on over the fabric with ease.

With the help of these basic tips, you’ll be able to make your wedding ensemble a vintage masterpiece and walk down the aisle in confidence and style!
