Inspired by Regency England!

My bride from this past weekend's stunning wedding wore a wedding gown inspired by the Regency period. Her breathtaking gown featured an Empire waist, delicately embroidered and jeweled sleeves that didn't quite reach her elbow and layers of embellished organza (plus a 16 foot veil). Although I don't have images of her dress yet, I wanted to share a little historical wedding gown inspiration.

To finish her look, my bride carried an antique silver tussy-mussy holder filled with lily of the valley down the aisle and had a white beaded bag to hold her lipstick for later in the evening. Not to mention the white parasol she used to keep dry during the day, also a classic Regency style.
