Original 1940s wedding dress for vintage bride Emily.

Dear Reader,
With its delicate Peter Pan collar and pretty lace sleeves, this gorgeous 1940s satin wedding dress was the perfect match for Emily: unusual and elegant at once!
Emily married Pete in South London in April – keeping the day simple and pretty with Spring flowers, bright pompoms, and a posh pie supper. 

Their relaxed approach worked beautifully, and Emily wholeheartedly recommends it to anyone planning their wedding…
"My advice would be to not get too worked up about it all. Easier said than done, I know. There is a lot of pressure on couples, and especially women, to make the perfect day and for everything to somehow represent you both as a couple. Not everything has to mean something, you’ll probably make some random decisions because you don’t want to devote your whole life to organising a wedding. The most important thing is that you are marrying the person that you love, and that you’re committed to the marriage ahead."

I'll end on Emily's words…
"A big thank you for all your help in finding and creating such a beautiful wedding dress for me! We had a fantastic day in April, and I got lots of compliments on my stunning and unusual dress. 
I'd recommend Heavenly Vintage Brides to anyone looking for a vintage wedding dress."

Thanks to Emily and Pete for sharing their lovely pictures (and thanks too, to photographer Benjamin Mathers). If you'd like to see more, check out Boho–
