Art Deco Wedding Dresses || Mignon

Art Deco Wedding Dresses || Mignon

Browsing through some deco inspired dress collections yesterday I came across a brand I’d never heard of before, called Mignon. Some really lovely stuff! I think the reason I hadn’t seen these dresses before is that they are often marketed as formal/prom/dance gowns as opposed to wedding gowns, but some of them would be absolutely…

Vintage Style Wedding Dresses || Amanda Wakeley

Vintage Style Wedding Dresses || Amanda Wakeley

I came across the dresses of designer Amanda Wakeley recently, and was completely bowled over. Speechless! Stunned! Not only do I love almost every gown in her collection, her lookbook / photo shoots are absolutely, 100%, insanely gorgeous. They are probably my favorite of any I’ve seen, just photography-wise, and the fact that the dresses…
