5 Vintage Wedding Dresses Perfect for Autumn Brides

Hello lovelies! It’s Friday (I can almost hear the cheer from here!), the end of another week and time for another Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons. Over the last month or so, we have been celebrating the imminent arrival of my favourite season, Autumn, by looking at the most beautiful bridesmaidsbouquets, colour palettes, and cakes for a fall wedding.

2. My own love of lace sleeves started with Grace Kelly’s wedding dress. As a Hollywood icon marrying into royalty her gown had to be special and it certainly was (it’s still considered one of the most iconic wedding dresses some 58 years later!) she looked every inch the princess.

3. This Victoriana Handkerchief Hem Dress from Alice & Olivia is just so romantic with its sheer bodice and high, scalloped neckline. Don’t those draped panels of chiffon look so pretty peeking from the hem?…..
