Have you always wanted a vintage dress, but are unsure how to maake it work with the rest of your wedding decor? Lisa from Lisa Lyons Bridalwear is here to help you turn your vintage wedding dress into anything but traditional, alongside Lauren Young Photography and some other wonderful suppliers.
There is a growing trend for brides to wear non -traditional wedding dresses, as well as choosing different colours and styles, from pastels to jewel like colours, ombre to dip dyed, hand -painted to hand -dyed using artisan techniques. With classic blue being the colour trend for 2020 we wanted show how a classic colour can work with a more contemporary colour palette.
With the table-scape we decided to play with the vintage feel. Classic china and glass paired with gold leaf and blue details. Green ruscus and ivy was added to the table and interwoven with flower buds. The classic car from Luxford Cars completed the look to match the classic inspiration.
The Bridal Gown
The technique to dye the dress is called Shibori, a form of Japanese tie-dye using Indigo dye. The fabric is hand dyed in pieces, so this makes the pattern unique and bespoke. The dress, once it was finished had a vintage feel, the silk of the dress also had a luxurious texture which worked well with the Black-Tie theme too.
The Hair and Makeup
We styled the dress with vintage hair accessories and the bride’s make-up and hair had a real subtle nod to old school Hollywood glamour.
The florals from Apple Tree House were stunning, a mix of vibrant oranges and fiery reds gave a stunning colour pop with accents of blue and lots of foliage to tie the whole look together.
A multi cake decorated with a marble effect and accented with gold tied the theme in beautifully, whilst being quite modern.
The wedding stationery reflected the rest of the styling by being classic, yet carrying a vintage glamour with the gold hints.
