As I explained before, this week's Affordable Wedding Dress post is late due to deadlines. But here it is at last and this week I'm featuring some lovely Regency-era wedding dresses. For a regency look channel Jennifer Ehle as Elizabeth Bennett in Pride and Prejudice. The Jane Austen look is very flattering; the empire line dresses push up the boobs and covers the stomach.
I've found some lovely regency era wedding dresses that range from under £100 to £495. Cheap wedding dresses that flatter the figure, what more could you want?
Desiree Regency Wedding Dress - Etsy
We'll start with a real regency style wedding dress; this gown from Etsy seller Gewandfantasein is handmade and crafted with everything that's good from the regency era. It's got an empire line, capped sleeves and lashings of beautiful crepe-de-chine.
Elisa Gown - BHLDN
This is a modern take on a regency look. The Elisa dress is a classic style that will never be out of fashion. It provides a nod to the Jane Austen look with the empire line and capped sleeves. But the sheer lace and clean lines are modern.
It's half price so a total bargain.
Priced $600 (down from $1,200)
Teri Jon Metallic Lace-Top Gown - Saks Fifth Avenue
This lovely cream and metallic dress is from the famous Saks Fifth Avenue. It's not meant to be a wedding dress but I think it would make a very stylish one. It features long sleeves and a metallic finish top. This contrasts with the plain, flowing skirt beautifully.
Regency Dress - Etsy
Now this is a real Pride and Prejudice style wedding dress. You'd definitely feel like Elizabeth Bennett in this beauty. It is made to order by Etsy shop SewManyTreasures. It's got the lovely empire line combined with soft, flowing material. Plus, a flattering and comfortable drawstring waist.
The white fabric features a very delicate floral pattern, making it that little bit different.
That's all for this week. Check back next Monday, I'll try to be on time!
