Jane Austen Wedding Styles

Throwing a Jane Austen style wedding today is all about the details, from the invitations, to the gloves, to the shape of the dress and the sleeves, to the lace parasol or hat and old fashioned fragrant flowers, to hairstyles and jewelry. All these echoes of an elegant yet simple style from the past will make a regency era wedding seem true to form. These images and links will help a young bride (and her mother) to think about the elements that make a Jane Austen style wedding work.

These are spectacular! I so wish this had been available when I got married. When I was picking a dress, most of them looked like Bo Peep.

I love the Camille gown! There used to be a little dress shop in my town when I lived in England and it always had the best wedding gowns. I remember finding the best Austen-esque gown.
