The Best Dresses for the Vintage Inspired Bride

Brides are having a serious love affair with vintage-inspired gowns right now, and for good reason. Intricate beading, beautiful laces, luscious fabric, elegant motifs—vintage gowns are full of the most breathtaking details. And the best part about vintage gowns? They stand the test of time! (Because why else would we seek out the same beautiful designs, year after year?) When it comes to vintage-inspired bridal gowns, no one does it better than Maggie Sottero Designs. With demure necklines, alluring backs and feminine details, Maggie Sottero Designs strikes the perfect balance of elegance with just a hint of sexy. Depending on how you envision your day, one of the brand’s three lines—Maggie Sottero, Sottero and Midgley, and Rebecca Ingram—will perfectly match your bridal style.

Maggie Sottero is for the classic and romantic bride, with a personalized vision of her big day. (Think shimmering fabrics, ethereal embellishments and captivating designs.) This Larkin gown is one of our favorites— featuring an attached sleeveless illusion jacket covered in Swarovski crystals over a sweetheart neckline. It’s the perfect twist on a classic design, with just the right amount of stunning detail.

If you’re dreaming of a gown with sleeves, the Cordelia gown is just about perfect. It features allover lace, covered buttons down the back, and a bateau neckline. Doesn’t it look like something you would wear for a royal wedding? Oh, and we can’t forget to mention—it has pockets!

If you want an elegant, high-quality gown but you’re shopping on a budget, the Rebecca Ingram line is just what you’re looking for. How beautiful is this Ada gown? We can’t get enough of those lace illusion straps (click the link to see the amazing open back).

But if you’re the kind of bride who’s looking to make a bold statement on her wedding day, the Sottero and Midgley line might be perfectly suited to your tastes. With plunging necklines, show-stopping trains and glamorous embellishments, the Sottero and Midgley line is inspired by the chic and glamorous bride. Between the Swarovski crystal and the tulle on this Emery gown, no one will be able to take their eyes off of you.

The Palmer gown by Sottero and Midgley features a striking open illusion back and fit-and-flare train, with the most intricate double-scalloped hem. Every inch of this dress is just one amazing detail after another!

Which gown is your favorite? We had a hard time picking even a handful to showcase, so make sure you head over to Maggie Sottero Designs‘ site to see all the gorgeous gowns for yourself. And if you’re itching to try on a vintage-inspired gown in person, Maggie Sottero Designs’ store locator can help you find a boutique close to your home!
