Medieval 'style' wedding dress

Postby Aitken Drum » Thu Jan 20, 2011 9:36 am

Hellooooo - we do 15thC, and my cousin has approached me asking where she might buy a medieval 'style' wedding dress - but not from the high street cos they cost a silly fortune.

She doesn't want authentic cos that would be boring lol.... so she is after the long sleeves fairy tale renfayre stuff i suppose. Do any of you make dresses like that that she could buy off the peg and have a website I can send to her? Or know of any patterns that we might make from... will you be at one of the markets this year?

Thank you :)

If youa re on a budget try ebay; just type in medieval dress gown.

There are a lot of new as well as pre-owned wedding dresses in a 'medieval' style - check bridal too.

better still etsy.com

The UK 'version' is folksy.com, but still fledgling.

I have no experience of either, but a friend purchased from Rossetti and was very happy. Better still there are some great Seamstresses on here who may want the work?

If you want something medieval and bridal and made to measure (becuase there is no such thing as a set size nowadays, and it is harder to alter some styles than to make from scratch, no matter how easily ordered), doesn't Debbie Lough do bridal as well as period clothing? http://www.deborahloughcostumes.com/home

You could try http://www.gd-costumes.co.uk/, she does wedding dresses and organisation. She did my wife's dress in fact.

Best wishes

I do bridal gowns, any style, any period, any fantasy :D

It's all custom made so not cheap, but I always do my best to try and come up with something within whatever budget parameters you have set.
