Instead of spending hours fighting with other equally frustrated brides over wedding dresses in designer stores and bridal boutiques, why not take the easy route by going for something a little more unique, a vintage wedding dress perhaps?

Think about it: no more tug-of-wars with other brides when you find a particularly nice gown. No more hours of waiting just so you can fit a wedding dress. With the vintage wedding dress, you have less competition and less hassle.

What Is It?

As tradition would have it, wedding dresses used to be handed down from generation to generation. In a way, you can consider the wedding garb passed from bride to bride as "vintage".

Today, most brides buy their own wedding dresses instead of opting for their mother's or grandmother's dress. There's more to "vintage" than simply being "old". When buying a vintage wedding dress, learn the lingo.

In the world of wedding dresses, there's a small difference between an antique dress and a vintage dress. When you say antique wedding dress, you're referring to a dress that was made in the 1920s or earlier. While the vintage wedding dress, on the other hand, refers to a dress that was created at least 25 years ago.

Why We Love It
Now that we're done with terminology and proper usage of "vintage" and "antique", we can now tackle the reasons why we love these old wedding dresses. These days, it's not uncommon for you to find Hollywood A-listers wearing vintage gowns during red carpet events. It seems as if the "old" has just made a timely and amazingly successful comeback fit to eclipse the "new".

What's fabulous about getting a vintage wedding dress is that you can choose between numerous dress styles. Vintage wedding dresses span decades of ebbing and flowing fashion trends. You can choose between a Victorian dress and a lovely vintage sheath dress, knowing that whichever style you choose, you're going vintage.

You simply have to find the era that flatters your figure best and appeals to you the most, and you've got the right vintage wedding dress style for you.

It's the perfect wedding dress choice if you're going for a historical themed wedding, or if you're looking to add some drama to your wedding ceremony. If you have the budget, you can even choose a historical palace or location as your wedding venue, easily transporting you and your guests to some forgotten era.

Aside from their aesthetic and historical appeal, vintage wedding dresses also show off the extraordinary and fabulous craftsmanship and detailing used by dressmakers from decades ago. Most of the vintage dresses you'll find these days are also free from carbon copies and replicas, so you can be sure that no other modern bride has the exact same dress that you have.

If you're a big fan of stunning embroidery, luxurious fabrics and wonderful hand-sewn beading, then the vintage wedding dress is for you.
