wedding dresse throughout the ages - when freddie met lillyHave you ever rifled through your grandmothers attic, pulled out her exquisite vintage gown and marvelled at its beauty? Or laughed out at the over the top design of your mothers’ bridal outfit while looking at her wedding album? Do you dream about your wedding outfit-whether you will wed in white or be bold in colour?

We, at When Freddie met Lilly, have decided to take a trip down memory lane and look at wedding dresses throughout the ages – what trends have stayed and what designs are coming back in style!

Vintage Wedding Gowns

Vintage wedding gowns are seen in all Elizabethan movies, and flapper hat cloches were very popular amongst brides. Bodices became loose and free flowing as new found womanhood was embraced. Think of Keira Knightly in the movie The Duchess and her grandiose wedding dress with the bows which probably reflected choices made for others for the Duchess of Devonshire! The Angelique Gown from Brisbane designers When Freddie met Lilly reflects this vintage trend with an edgy touch.
