Edwardian Fancy


Slip sylph-like down the aisle in this floaty Edwardian tambour fine-laced dress. The peachy-pink sash gives the understated glamour an accent of colour. Dress it up even more with a tiara or pearly vintage headpiece, like this unique piece (pictured) from Cherished Vintage.

Dress, Heavenly Vintage Brides, £1200. Headpiece by Cherished Vintage, from a selection at cherishedvintage.co.uk

Darling Thirties Dresses


This sheer, floaty dream of a dress, with its little daisy embellishments on the pretty puff sleeves and the elegant crossed front is simply angelic in off-white. Just as dramatic from the back, it features a show-stopping long train that will wow the congregation.

Dress, Heavenly Vintage Brides, £1350. Headdress, Cherished Vintage, from a selection at cherishedvintage.co.uk

Darling Thirties Dresses


This slinky, satin bias cut dress is simple but so chic, and its silvery sheen will work the transition from day to night perfectly. With beautiful diamanté detailing on the back and front, your groom and your guests will be equally as dazzled – accessorise with a simple white, feathered headpiece to add a spellbinding, Swan Lake inspired twist.

Dress, Heavenly Vintage Brides, £800. Feathered headpiece, htheadwear.com, £120.

Darling Thirties Dresses


If white isn’t your wedding style, then try this Champagne-coloured lace dress – with nude shades so in right now, you’ll be giving a nod to the new despite going for a gown from times gone by.

Dress, Heavenly Vintage Brides, £1000. Feather headpiece, HTHeadwear, £95.

Fabulous Forties Fashion


Seemingly sweet and simple, this dress is actually fashioned out of the French Alencon lace, valued for the unusual craftsmanship that goes into its creation and called the ‘Queen of Lace’ in its native France. All this dress needs is a fairytale setting (a French Chateaux, perhaps?), some romantic waves in the hair and a beautiful bouquet – parfait!

Fifties Chic


Look the picture of elegance in this full-skirted chiffon gown – we love the lacy bustle, and those sleeves remind us of Lily Allen’s Delphine Manivet wedding dress. Make like Greta Garbo in 1936 movie, Camille – her similarly full-skirted dress was adorned with twinkling stars; why not fix some diamante star-shaped accessories in your hair for an updated Old Hollywood feel?

Dress, Heavenly Vintage Brides, £1000.

Swinging Sixties


This sweet sixties dress will look sensational styled up with a big, backcombed bun – but also has little flavours of the romantic pre-Raphelite about it: the scooped neck, basque waist and long tapered sleeves might be reasonably modern, but they still wouldn’t look out of place in the make-believe beauty of a Rossetti painting.

Dress, Heavenly Vintage Brides, £850.
