A vintage wedding dress conveys a feeling of timelessness and lasting beauty. Brides love the simple detailing of the lace on their gold, champagne, or pure white gowns. This detailing can very well spell the difference between overly simple and elegant dresses. The trend is veering towards necklines that are either scooped low or built in high in lace. This gives an illusion of a slimmer more enhanced neckline. The brides look taller and leaner with this kind of cut.
One thing you must be very careful of and that is the size. In the early days, women wore corsets and girdles to get that ultra thin waist and slim fit. If you’ve watched period films, you will be able to relate. For this reason, you might need a size or two larger than what you are accustomed to. The bust, waist and hip measurements should be supplemented with shoulder and arm width. Always check the exact measurement; this will help you get the perfect size for your body type.

It is also a time to indulge in a dream that you will turn into a very real moment that will stay with you forever.
