When it comes to vintage trends, there are few decades more glamorous than the 1920s. Rife with silk and satin gowns, romantic silhouettes, and subtle embellishments, there’s no better time to try out the look than on your wedding day. When you’re seeking that look that’s going to make a stunning statement yet want to stay far away from that over-the-top princess look, channel your grandmother’s youthful look (or perhaps that of your great…) and seek a wedding gown you imagine she might have worn at your age.
The most noteworthy aspect of 1920s fashion is a woman’s ability to dress with all the head-turning details a look could only hope for while making it look as though it was as effortless as slipping into a pair of blue jeans and a T-shirt (in modern times, of course). For your big day, consider slightly puckered sleeves, fabrics that cascade down your frame without hugging too tight, and beading or embroidery that gives your look a little something extra but doesn’t make you feel as though you’re headed to a 1970s disco.
From Zuhair Murad to Bhldn and more, here are 1920s-inspired wedding dresses you need to see for your most fashionable day yet.
