Today’s Monday’s Finding is pure eye candy. If you love antique textiles, handmade lace, beautiful bustles, or previously loved articles of wonder, you are going to LOVE this post. Seriously, I even made myself SQUEE! when I pulled this post together.
I love antique textiles and fashion. I can spend hours upon hours perusing such sites as vintagetextile.com and antiquedress.com. Very few current gown designers nowadays use such exquisite fabric, beading, pleating, handmade lace, and intricately detailed materials and techniques any more. Each dress is a work of art, many bespoke and unique to the bride for which they were created. One of the gowns below even comes with pictures and the marriage certificate of the bride!
So, here is a gathering of 12 gorgeous antique gowns. Perhaps you might consider purchasing one of these wearable works or as inspiration for your own bridal ensemble. Enjoy!

“Couple to be hitched at largest Titanic attraction”
This is the sort of headline that makes someone like myself go, “SQUEE!” Immediately my mind goes in to overdrive and I can’t keep myself from the brainstorm that ensues. Must…design…must…plan…must utilize this spark of inspiration. Titanic Belfast is sure to become a destination spot for couples looking for an meticulously authentic late Edwardian fete. Each area is a nearly exact replica of the RMS Titanic, which was built in Belfast (hence the exhibition and creation of the Titanic Quarter in Belfast Harbour).
Can you picture your ceremony on the steps of the Grand Staircase?
With a reception in the Gallery just beyond the staircase?
With all of this beautifully historical scenery, who couldn’t resist the glamour and romance of that bygone era? So, I give you my inspiration board for a Titanic inspired wedding perfect for a location such as Titanic Belfast.
