Dear Reader

Today’s real vintage bride is Ali, who chose this beautiful 1950s dress for her wedding.

Like so many of the best 1950s and 1960s wedding dresses, this chic and simple gown was inspired by Grace Kelly’s 1956 wedding dress. (Many wonderful photos of that iconic wedding can be seen here.)

With its very fitted bodice, elegant lace sleeves and boat neckline, the dress┬ásuited Ali’s lovely neat figure so perfectly. And in Ali’s own words,

“I adored the dress. I felt amazing in it, and my husband loved it!”

I have two or three beautiful examples of this style in my collection of original vintage wedding dresses at my West London studio. Do contact me if you’d like to come and visit.
