So early on in the wedding planning process me & my fiance decided on a ‘vintage’ theme.. But now I have my heart set on a very non-vintage dress! Any idea’s how I can make this dress more vintage ‘inspired’, or accessories to go with would be very much appreciated!

That’s a beautiful dress 🙂 Maybe you could vintage it up with your hair and makeup? Some pin curls and finger waves under a bird cage veil, and juicy cherry red lips. And big pearls too!
There are some ideas here for hair.

maybe a simple birdcage veil, I think that speaks vintage but could also go with your dress.

@so_said_ellie: PERFECT suggestions. I 2nd all of it.
And that dress is STUNNING.
Maybe you could get some art-deco style jewelry too.

You could add an old fashioned brooch. I really love the idea of pin curls or finger waves and a bird cage veil!

Great suggestions – thanks!
Always had in mind a dress with lots of lace / chiffon, but I adore this dress! It’s second hand, but she said I can return it for a full refund if it doesn’t fit / isn’t for me.. I’ve had my eye on it for months!
I’ve seen an amazing pearl necklace that incorporates a vintage brooch.. Maybe I could wear that and a birdcage veil.. hmm.. lots to think about!

@so_said_ellie: I agree! I would say that would do the trick!
Everyone knows a bride doesn’t compromise on her dress 😉 and it would be a neat twist on a vintage theme I think! Oh my goodness I love that dress! It is so beautiful!! Congrats!

We are kind of doing the same thing. Want a vintage style but I have my heart set on a non vintage dress. So I will probably vintage it up with hair, makeup, and jewelry.

a lace bolero can definitely up the vintage factor, but so can all the other great suggestions! Show pictures when you decide!

Sorry I’ve been awol.. Still haven’t decided on the dress, I’ve never been so indecisive in my life!!
@brideatbeach: The necklace is from a great local site here in NZ http://www.coveted.co.nz They don’t currently offer international shipping on the site, but I know the owner & she’d be happy to ship internatioanlly if you emailed her. [email protected]
