The best wedding dress designs will always be unique. A bride walking through the forest, barefoot, with her head spread with a crown of roses, must have just the right dress details. As the bohemian-chic and vintage bride becomes more popular, the styles expand. For the barefoot bride, for the lady in lavender, for the romantic in us all. The angel, we believe, is in the details.

Embroidery: An intricately embroidered wedding dress was ideal in the Victorian and Edwardian age. Wedding dress designs since have shied away from this antique design. We, however, have found it again. Vintage couture blended this lovely alternative amethyst with an iconic embroidery. Clean and high at the neck. Made with Victorian and Edwardian elements without the cumbersome corset. Look for seamless embroidery to get this look for yourself.
