WHAT MAKES A VINTAGE BRIDE LOOK VINTAGE?

In this case certainly not age but that could be one factor.  Looking vintage on your wedding day means you're zeroing in on some chic borrowed from the ages. No they don't have to be authentic, ie; real jewels or head wear but can be.  With all us designers creating such great replicas of bygone eras it's just a matter of finding the right fabrics and accessories to bring out and play up a vintage look. Directly above and below are great examples of using lace to recall a certain decade.  These dresses are dripping in lace evocative of The Downton Abbey era

 Above: Nothing glams up a look like the use of gloves.  Long opera length go beautifully with evening gown styles of the thirties.  While the shorties shown here go particularly well with the 50s-60s, they would jazz up styles of earlier 20th Century chic as well  Below: Topping it all off with head wear can really nail an era,  Below is a medley of images perfect for a bride who loves the 1940s

Hello. Amy-Jo,
Beautiful, simply beautiful! The lace is just SO lovely. Happy the bride who wears any one of these gorgeous gowns.
I certainly share your enthusiasm for long opera length gloves. As you say, they add just so much glamour and so much elegance.
Sincerely,
Sheila
