Choosing one of the best wedding vintage dresses is also the secret to making sure your wedding photos never look dated. I got married *cough* a few *cough* years ago, and because I love Sixties style, I was determined to wear a mini dress. It was a winter wedding, so I had sleeves too.

I can look back on my photos without cringing or feeling I’d been swayed by that year’s trends. You could never guess the year I married, from the style of my dress. One of the best wedding vintage dresses will offer timeless appeal, so whatever decade you’re inspired by, let’s peruse the options…

For 2022, so many designers – and high street brands – have been inspired by the slinky silhouettes of the 1930s. This was the era when Hollywood glamour reigned with Mae West, Jean Harlow and Greta Garbo stealing the show, often in ice white satin gowns that were halter neck, barely there and bias cut. Pretty Lavish’s satin gown totally echoes the era while Roksanda’s silk-crepe dress moves into the 1940s with a stronger shoulder line and puffier sleeves. For a Fifties silhouette, Erdem’s lace dress is something Sandra Dee would have dreamed of and if I was planning my wedding today, I might have fallen for Brandon Maxwell’s Sixties-style silk faille mini dress
