Clare wears a charming 1950s / 1960s vintage wedding dress in Broderie Anglais.

Dear Reader,
A very sweet real bride for you today: Clare, who chose a pretty late 50s / early 60s wedding dress in cotton eyelet lace or Broderie Anglais
1950s wedding dresses in cotton lace are so fresh and pretty. Perfect for vintage bride Clare.
With its pretty boat neck, neat white bodice and crisp white cotton, this lovely dress had a Riviera feel… like something Bardot might wear in a 1960s movie. And it fitted Clare so beautifully, it might have been made for her!
Clare's 1950s/60s wedding dress fitted perfectly, with its neat bodice and pretty boat neck.
These charming cotton wedding dresses from the 50s and 60s have stayed the course so well. Cotton is a wonderful fabric for a wedding dress – delicate and crisp, yet still strong and easy to wear. Cotton has fantastic longevity and can even be washed by hand if you're careful. A cotton wedding dress will last so well, you really can save it as an heirloom for your children.
White cotton dress and candy pink shoes – a gorgeous 1950s look for vintage bride Clare.
And of course, this lovely style is quite timeless. 1950s and 1960s style wedding dresses are so fresh and pretty they'll always be in fashion. 
Simple accessories for a chic and pretty dress: just a chic birdcage veil and satin ribbon.
Clare certainly made the perfect choice, and of course all her friends agreed. In Clare's words,
"I absolutely adored the dress. It was so comfortable to wear and fitted just perfectly. We had a wonderful day and I got lots of flattering comments on the dress and its pure elegance and simplicity in design."
Pretty as a picture: real vintage bride Clare in a 1950s / 1960s cotton lace wedding dress.
I love the simple accessories Clare chose to wear with her dress – the sweet birdcage veil, crystal hair accessory and candy pink peep–toes! Thanks for sharing your pictures, Clare – you look pretty as a picture!
