But, of course we can’t talk about vintage wedding gowns without talking about lace. All-over vintage lace wedding dresses were a popular staple in the 20th century, and modern designers like Azazie are embracing this fabulous trend by using thicker lace or more geometric patterns. Azazie loves to showcase the beauty of lace by adding extra accents through the skirts, sleeves and bodices of our gowns. We also have fun lace accents that feature sequin detailing that is a little more modern and gives it some additional sparkle. Whether you choose just one of these classic details or decide to put them all together, vintage styles are always a favorite because they are timeless looks that make brides shine. Let us help you discover your dream gowns for weddings in our ever-changing collections. Also, give yourself a chance to be the focus of all at the important moment.
As you start your search for the perfect wedding dress, first decide on the silhouette. Ballgown wedding dresses, with their dramatic full skirts and waist-cinching bodices, are one of the most popular styles. If you’re looking for something a little sexier, look for a mermaid wedding dress, which hugs your figure and flares out at the mid-thigh. A-line wedding dresses are universally flattering! With the same waist-cinching effect as a ballgown and a flowy, dance-floor-ready skirt, it’s easy to see why brides love this effortless look. Courthouse brides and brides looking for something a little different often reach for short wedding dresses. We especially love tea-length dresses for their elongating effect and nod to vintage wedding dresses.
Years ago, bows used to be popular, whether you were wearing them on your head or on your clothing. They were one of the biggest trends of 2011. Seven years later, bows are back in style. They either compliment the back of the gown as an accessory or the front of the dress as an accent bow. Bows are more commonly seen on the back of the wedding dress to bring attention to a long dress tail as the bride is walks down the aisle. With bows, you can use them with a simple look, such as small delicate bows, or you can really get noticed with large decadent bows. A statement bow will get noticed and may spark many fashion-related conversations at your wedding.
