The Queen Mother’s Vintage Inspired Dress

Some brides look to vintage dresses as an inspiration for their own dream dress.

An interesting person with a love of vintage inspiration was the Queen Mother. On her wedding day in 1923 she wore a dress with a typical general style of 1920’s brides (loose-waist, ankle-length), but the detailing was inspired by a medieval Italian dress.

Now the Queen Mother’s wedding dress can serve as inspiration for modern brides admiring vintage wear. Rumour has it that Queen Amidala’s Star Wars wedding dress was inspired by The Queen Mother’s dress.

And so the circle of inspiration continues!
