Some of My Favorite 2010 Vintage Inspired Wedding Gowns…

Every season, bridal gown designers are faced with the tough challenge of creating a range of wedding gowns that feel fresh enough to differentiate themselves from last season but also traditional enough to still appeal to the masses.  After weeding through gown after gorgeous, white gown, I have come up with a list of my personal favorites that perfectly marry (pun intended?) the past’s antique grace with today’s modern feel.  Enjoy! -Alessandra

This gown brings the airy romance of Regency England to mind…
Ivory embroidered tulle gown by Watters, style “Odessa”

I love the unusual Edwardian influence in this gown!
Embroidered tulle gown by Claire Pettibone, style “Akoya”

The fit and flare silhouette, lace appliqués, and pleated details practically scream antique, old world elegance!
Ivory Victorian lace A-Line gown by Lazaro, style no. LZ3006

This gorgeous early 1930’s inspired lace mermaid gown features butterfly sleeves is a rare find in a sea of otherwise strapless gowns…
 Also, check out the photo on their website, you’re able to zoom and really see the amazing detail!

Who says wedding gowns have to be white?  Prior to the mid 19th century, they ranged in a variety of soft pastel shades.   I give you baroque elegance, Vera style!
Citrus silk gown by Vera Wang, style “Didi”

Basically I’m a huge sucker for any gown with black details and avant garde 1950’s silhouette… Love it!
