If you think of the last few years in the wedding world, you cannot avoid the term vintage. Born out of the boho hype, vintage is one of the most popular styles among wedding dresses. German wedding magazine Frieda Theres has illustrated the concept of vintage with two unique Daalarna dresses in a beautiful styled shoot. take a look and start dreaming about your own wedding dress!
Vintage or Boho?
As Frieda Theres states, vintage is not the same as boho, even if the design trends are very similar. The vintage trend stands for used and traditional items so it means original pieces from previous decades. Long story short, vintage is fashion with history.
Details that characterize the vintage style are ruffles, for example. They were also the pioneers of the trend towards puffed sleeves. Vintage-inspired wedding dresses are usually made of delicate lace and exude the romantic, elegant charm of old times.
Boho wedding dresses, on the other hand, embody more lightness and play with cheeky details: fringes, coarse lace, crocheted elements or large floral appliqués define the look.
Vintage Wedding Dresses #1 – Stand-up collar & puff sleeves
Quoting Frieda Theres: „Characteristic of the vintage look and anything but stuffy: a small stand-up collar. This model by Daalarna also combines the eye-catcher with voluminous sleeves, bringing a cool touch of folklore to the look. The outfit becomes modern and edgy thanks to the high-contrast styling: hair in a strict sleek look and smokey eyes. The eye-catching pearl barrette by Jennifer Behr sets a fashionable accent on top.”
Vintage Wedding Dresses #2 – Elegant jacquard lace
Quoting Frieda Theres: „Daalarna‘s delicately shimmering wedding dress sums up vintage elegance beautifully. Noble, underlaid jacquard lace meets delicate puff sleeves and a classic cut. Fashionable eye-catchers: the boxy neckline at the front and the sexy back. Combined with a sparkling crystal necklace, the look becomes glamorous. The soft beach waves add freshness and modernity to the style.”
