Victorian-style dresses are an ode to the past, often featuring shawls and lace; however, they can be easily updated to include a modern touch. Here are five wedding dress styles for a Victorian Wedding.
Gothic Victorian Gowns
Consider a gothic Victorian dress if you’re a bride looking for a dramatic style dress. This style is characterized by a dark color, normally black which gives the full effect. The style features mermaid gowns, or a floor-length A-line skirt so you can find the style that works for you. Lace and tulle help make this a bold and dramatic style for your wedding dress.
Victorian Accessories for your Modern Style
It’s easy to incorporate Victorian elements into your wedding. Pick an aspect of the Victorian style, and use it for your wedding dress, such as carrying a parasol, or adding lace trim to your dress. You can also extend this to your Bridesmaid’s dresses, accessorizing them with a Victorian element.
Victorian Dresses with Long Sleeves
Classic Victorian wedding dresses incorporated styles with long sleeves. Sheer sleeves are lovely if you want a sleeve with a see-through effect. See this dress with long sheer sleeves and a sweetheart neckline. Lace is a good alternative if you want a sleeve with a little more coverage. If you want a looser sleeve, look into the angel sleeve hanging loose from the shoulder.
Victorian Dresses with Corsets
If you’re looking for a style of dress that resembles a corset, you’re in luck because there are styles of the corset and corset-like dresses. The corset can have any pattern you want, making it a versatile style, and a way to feature your personality. The corset style is not very popular, as it is for the bride with a unique personality.
