Daily Dose of Pretty | 54 | Wedding Gowns Inspired by Downton Abbey

Are you watching Downton Abbey?  I am way late to the game, but Parker and I have discovered it’s available on amazon Prime so we have finished watching Seasons 1 and 2 and just started Season 3 last night (the wedding episode!).  The costumes on that show are so exquisite and I especially loved Lady Mary’s wedding look – from the gown to the head piece to her long cathedral veil.  I woke up thinking about beautiful gowns of the era and then realized that some wedding dresses these days have been taking some inspiration from the early 1920s.  I hope we see more and more – the dresses of the era were so feminine and soft, perfect for a blushing bride.

Are you in love?  I know I am.  Now I know why celebrities renew their vows so often – because there are always new and beautiful wedding gowns coming out and I can’t blame them for wanting an excuse to wear them!  No less than three of these dresses have me wishing I could get married all over again.  My favorites are the first, last and second to last shown here.  What I wouldn’t give to dress up in any one of these beauties…

    First of all I would like to say awesome blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your
    mind before writing. I’ve had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Thank you!
