Vintage Wedding Dresses

I've been meaning to share some of the vintage details of my wedding here on this blog. I tried to incorporate vintage touches wherever I could in the wedding, so I'm sure I'll have a few posts to share.

For now, I want to talk about my dress - I already knew I wanted a vintage dress, so when I stumbled upon the perfect ruffled knee-length white dress, I bought it immediately (even though technically I wasn't even engaged yet - it was too good to let go):

(dress : Timeless Vixen | shoes : jrenee | belt: club monaco)

I'm a huge fan of the short wedding dress trend, but mostly just like that people seem to be doing whatever they want to with their dresses these days. Long, short, plain or colorful - its all okay, as long as the dress just screams "you". The dress I bought wasn't technically a "wedding" dress - I think it was a 50s prom number, but it worked.

if you want to go vintage for your wedding, we've got some fun vintage wedding-ish dresses hitting the shop this week:
