A Collection of Beautifully Unique Vintage Wedding Dresses from Beloved Vintage Bridal

Much as I can’t wait to see the new wedding dress collections for 2015 (NY Bridal Fashion Week isn’t far off and the glimpses of the latest designs never fail to make my knees a little weak!) there is nothing quite like the glamour, elegance and history of a vintage wedding dress. I don’t think there is anything that will create more of an impact, on your groom or your guests, than a wedding dress that is as unique as you are. And so it is always with more than a hint of envy that I see brides glide down the aisle in a precious family heirloom or treasured vintage find. In fact, if you follow Chic Vintage Brides on Facebook you are probably well aware of my obsession with vintage gowns and dresses, as I regularly share whichever one has had me swooning over my lunch hour.  And so it is with great delight today that I would like to introduce you to my latest find and love Beloved Vintage Bridal…..

Beloved Vintage Bridal - Vintage Wedding Dresses and Bridal Accessories

If you too are a lover of vintage style and fashion, then you may have stumbled across online vintage clothing store Dalena Vintage on your wanderings around the web. Founded in 2008 by Leslie Torbett, the boutique was born of an ongoing love affair between one girl and her adoration of all things vintage (honestly, we are two peas from the same pod!). With Leslie ensuring each incredible piece is hand-selected for it’s beauty, purity and quality, the result is a collection of heavenly vintage clothing in which a girl can absolutely lose herself (I often do!) Well, this year recognising the need for a separate bridal boutique, to offer the special care and assistance required by brides; and to cater for the current wave of adoration and demand for vintage bridal attire, Leslie and her mum Judy established sister site Beloved Vintage Bridal. 9 months in the making, the boutique offers an unmatched selection of lovingly curated wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, accessories, jewelry and vintage-inspired headpieces, ranging from romantic Edwardian gowns to bohemian 1970s maxi dresses – and covering every decade in between!

It truly is a collection worth swooning over! What I have always thought is most special about a vintage wedding dress, besides its unique style and grace, is the incredible history and love story that accompanies it. Whilst some can only be imagined – where might it have been worn? adorning what bride? designed and created with love by whom? Some Beloved Vintage Bridal are able to tell…..
