A vintage style wedding dress
The wedding gown pattern decision comes with versatile thoughts. On the one hand, it is the most precious dress ever that a woman has just one chance to wear it. On the other hand, it all comes with the budget problem: you wear it one day and why to spend so much money on it? From this point of view, like the saying what is old is gold, a vintage wedding dress would be the one to be on number one position as favorable type. Pay more or less in comparison with a modern pattern but at least is totally worth while.
First of all, a vintage wedding dress is a timeless one; with its classic aspect, with its elegance of a high class. All these are part of an antique world but yet no obsolete at all. But why would a bride choose this type of wedding dress instead of a sexy daring and modern one, with stronger accent on its body shapes? It could be about the bride’s preference for this style or just the circumstances imposing this: the bride’s mother comes with its wedding dress and gives it to her daughter, as a family heritage. You please her, you gain a classy dress.
To define what a vintage wedding dress means it is better to make a comparison action with a dress type from nowadays. For example the vintage variant of a gown with V neckline and straps will be the same cut with lace above, so that the neck part is covered and still at sight, with some flowy large short sleeves as well from lace. Or, the same V shape cut but for the back part as well. The whole dress is out of silk and embroidery, with a long train, waist accentuated and large short sleeves.
In a measure a vintage wedding gown may be the image of decency, the result of modest outfit. But is this not what a bride should express? Diaphanous aspect is more wanted than a deep revealing cut at the cleavage. The femininity is what comes in the front line but without showing too much: for example a round neckline, waist accentuated and a large skirt, with crinoline and of a tea length. But an exact vintage dress can be modified and adapted to the bride’s look and so, preserving this antique look but boosted with the modern influence: so like the 50’s style, with the tea length dresses, with the waist accentuated through a more tight part, with pearls and lace you are so from this decor. But for the above part one can come with a halter neckline, with backless side or something that passes over the demure look.
