vintage wedding dresses back in style!!

We love vintage wedding dresses, and seriously, who doesn't?
These works of art truly stand the test of time.

First, let me recomment this book, on the cover is one of the most beautiful royal couples ever, Prince Pavlos of Greece and his lovely bride.  A must-see for ideas in haute couture weddings.

1920's inspired Chanel Haute Couture ivory and black gown embellished with hundreds of tiny flowers.
 Two beauties rocking the same Christian Dior by Galliano 2011 Haute dress

Who says white dresses are only for weddings, here two more Galliano for Dior gowns at the Oscars.

Claire Pettibone is truly an inspiration with these exquisite dresses, painfully decorated by hand.  They are simple, romantic, and ever so classy!!

In keeping with the vintage, traditional look, I introduce some effortless chic ideas for Latina girls wishing to combine tradition with haute, for a super sweet wedding that is above and beyond any trend.
