Vintage Inspired Wedding Gowns
Alisa Benay is a gifted designer of vintage inspired wedding gowns. We found her blog complete with beautiful, close-up images of her most recent gowns. Several are featured below.
Alisa incorporates her fascination with vintage clothing as inspiration for her couture gowns. She combs the marketplace to enhance her bridal gowns, creating the most unique and romantic designs possible with custom made European trims and laces. Alisa also designs matching heirloom veils and jewelry to complete the vintage inspired ensemble.
DAPHNE, above, is a soft, subtle mix of luxurious silk velvet and French alencon lace. With peek-a-boo silhouette details at the bustier and hem.
IRIS, above and detailed below, is one of her newer gowns. The exposed corset laces up the back, but her secret trick to making the wedding day much more stress free is that her corseted gowns have a side zip access.
We love this idea. Alisa Benay introduced a new collection in 2010, BeLoved by Alisa Benay. BeLoved is a collection for the bride who wants beauty, grace, and style for a moderate price. The BeLoved collection has the option of letting the bride build her own dress! The bride chooses a top design, adds her favorite skirt design, and fabric. Then add custom options such as straps, sashes, or flowers. Shown below is Francine, on of Alisa’s favorites from the collection. A V-neck silk shantung mermaid gown with a rouched midriff and dramatic chapel length hem.
