Medieval Wedding Dresses

If you're interested in choosing one of the most  medieval beautiful wedding dresses for your fairytale wedding, there are many options that you can choose from. Do remember though that not every gown on sale is created the same way.

Some dresses are more or less authentic and have variable construction. Others can be a tad more expensive than they should be. So if you decide to have a medieval wedding gown for your wedding, you need to consider these things.

First and foremost, think of what period you prefer and how authentic you want to get. Do you really need the whole medieval experience? If the answer is yes, then you'd need to decide on the century, region as well as the social class that you'd like to wedding dresses in.

This would be more of a re-enactment, rather than just being a theme wedding.

This would only work marvellously if everyone knows the history behind those clothes that you'll be wearing. If you are a person who loves the olden day, then it can be really fun. Just remember that not everyone is as well versed as you are, so you would need to help them out.

Looking for authentic medieval wedding dresses can be somewhat challenging. The best option would be to get a professional seamstress or tailor to custom make it for you. They can give you quite a good deal seeing that there is a huge amount of time that needs to be spent constructing such a dress.

With regards to price, you can expect to pay an amount similar to that of a high-end wedding gown. Remember that for this dress to turn out beautifully you need to give your tailor a lot of time in advance to work on the dress. Rushing the job will without doubt ruin the whole dress.

Let's say you're not too picky about the exact time and region and are more interested in just giving your wedding a general medieval feel then you can find lots of medieval inspired dresses that you can choose from.

If you don't really mind the authenticity of your fabric or design, as long as the dress is beautiful, you can opt to look at suppliers for Renaissance medieval fairs or fantasy outfitters. This way you can have more control over the look of your cheap wedding dress. Do bear in mind that cost can be a factor, and buying something off the rack may require some alterations.

Once you have your medieval wedding dress, it is important for you to spend some time in it before your actual wedding.  Medieval clothes, especially those that have corsetry involved, can have a feel and fit that are different from our everyday modern clothing.

Spend some time wearing your gown with all the right innerwear and practice walking. This will make sure that you do not trip on your train, or feel uncomfortable and out of breath when the actual day comes. With all this practice, your wedding day will see you as the perfect and beautiful medieval bride.
