10 Vintage Style Bridesmaids dresses

May 21 2017, 0 Comments

It is coming to that time of the year again!

Wedding Season!


And what comes along with this season for every bride?


That hard to decision of what to get yours bridesmaids to wear. Should I got for a traditional bridesmaids dress, should I purchase online or instore? What colour? Or should I choose floral print? What style of dress with suit my bridesmaids and should it be long or short?


The list of questions and decisions is endless, and for some Brides to be this can actually be the hardest decision of  their entire wedding!


But why? I hear you asking.


Well as much as any Bridesmaid of Maid of Honour will say to the Bride "Pick anything you want, even if it is a potato sack I will still wear it and love you"


But no bride wants that! All that every Bride wants is for her Bridesmaids to look amazing and feel amazing in her Bridesmaids dress and if you you have a Bride that has chosen to have a few different ladies as her Bridesmaids and they happen to be different sizes, body shapes or have different styles & colouring, this can become a never ending, tedious dilemma for any Bride-to-be.


These days almost anything goes for a Bridesmaids dress and lots of Brides are looking at alternative dresses for their Bridesmaids and are choosing vintage style Bridesmaids dresses which is creating a new fun feel to their wedding day and photos.


But this still does not make the choice any easier.


So without further adieu I have compiled a list of 10 of my favourite options for Unique and Vintage Style Bridesmaids dresses.


1. Unique Vintage 1950s Style Red Rita Halter Flare Dress - This dress has such a refreshing vintage style halter neck which if you ask me should be featured on a lot more dress, that beautiful cutout detail works well on ladies of all bust sizes.


2. Lady Vintage Sapphire Rose Tea Dress - The floral design on being navy & pink which are some of the most common pairing of colours for weddings make this beautiful vintage style tea dress perfect for a lovely shorter bridesmaids dress.


3. Unique Vintage 1940s Navy Floral Ashcroft Short Sleeve Swing Dress - This lovely soft flowing navy dress featuring a gorgeous wide peephole & capped sleeves are impossible not to feel comfortable in for a long day running around being a bridesmaid.


4. Voodoo Vixen Charlotte Dress - Did you ever want to incorporate your love for cats into your wedding subtly? Well here is the perfect way with this gorgeous vintage style maroon cat print dress with an elegant cross over design on the bust that no one could resist.


5. Hell Bunny Black Dahlia 50's Dress - For the cooler weather wedding this iconic 50's dress with wide collar & 3/4 sleeve will keep your Bridesmaids looking gorgeous and feeling unstoppable all day long.


6. Unique Vintage 1950s White & Pink Stripe Golightly Bow Swing Dress - This style suits every shape and size and will give you an extra cute touch with the bow across the chest.


7. Lady Vintage Twilight Lily Floral - This dress make a bold statement next to your wedding dress and isn't of detracting from the colour of your dress like some may think will actually make you stand out ever more again the beautiful deep purple in the background of this floral Bridesmaids dress.


8. Hell Bunny Pink Lacey 50s Dress Pink - As pink is always a popular colour for Bridesmaids to be wearing I could not go past this beautiful floral number with would be a play on the traditional style pink Bridesmaids dress, perfect length of this dress being just below the knee works for the bride that wants a dress that is not too long and not too short (It's just right!).


9. Hell Bunny Mia Dress - For a garden wedding this would make a stunning vintage tea dress with the striking red colour that would stand out beautifully against all the greenery and the beautiful lace colour that adds that touch of elegance, you bridesmaids will feel fun and flirty in this little dress.


10. Lady Vintage Antique Rose Tea Dress - Gold is a very popular colour for bridesmaids dresses too and the floral print on this dress is subtle and brings a beautiful edge to this dress with the standout red roses amongst the print.

Charming this Christmas with Lady Vintage

December 01 2015, 0 Comments


Christmas is one of the most wonderful times of the year, so much joy, love and giving going on around the world which is such a beautiful thing and in my opinion should be happening all year round.



The holiday season is also filled with an abundance of events including work Christmas parties, family gatherings and of course all the regular birthdays, engagement parties and weddings that are always going one.

So especially at this time of the year you need something that you look fabulous in and not only that, something that will make you feel amazing too.

I don't know how your family is but I know we have some relatives that we only see this one time of the year because we aren't that close, and even if you aren't doing amazing you atleast want to look like you are. And you know what they say 'Dress as the person that you want to be'.

We have gotten a couple of especially gorgeous dresses in from Lady Vintage just in time for this silly season and they and being made out of 97% cotton they are perfect for the summer months coming up because cotton is so soft and breathable. There is nothing worse than being stuck with all your family on a scorching hot day in an uncomfortable stuffy dress!



I would like to now introduce the 'Winter Floral Dress'
This is the class Tea Dress from Lady Vintage with a vintage rose and leaf print that is so alluring you will never want to wear another dress again.

The next dress is the 'Antique Rose Dress' again it is a classic Tea Dress from Lady Vintage which has a very earth set of colours with the hints of red and green popping out which create a striking affect that makes you want to keep staring at the pattern.


We are still waiting on some more amazing dresses to come in store before Christmas.

But until then check out what amazing vintage style dresses we have in store and Merry Christmas and enjoy all the Christmas cheer going around.
