Downton Abbey Wedding

We here at Whittington Bridal are huge Downton Abbey fans, and we were loving Mary's bridal look on the season three premier.

Lets start with that headpiece! I'ts an amazing art deco piece that would  transform any bridal look into an elegant tribute to the roaring 20's.

Get the look with these options below:

Mary's veil reminds me of another spectacular royal wedding not to long ago.To get this look you must pay close attention to the quality of tulle on your veil. A silk tulle will fall much heavier like Kate's and Mary's, creating that vintage effect. A polyester blend will be much stiffer, and will not appear as flowy.

If you love Mary's gown, but would never consider wearing long sleeves or a high neckline, we suggest a high collar instead. Our current favorite vintage wedding gown has to be Essense of Australia's new lace keyhole back. The high collar makes it so vintage, but the gown is so perfectly modern at the same time.

There are so many ways you can incorporate the vintage styling's of Downton Abbey, without making it seem too costume-y.  Just remember to choose modern cuts and timeless fabrics with just a hint of vintage flare. Make sure the wedding still reflects you and is not overly themed.

How sweet are these two! Can't wait for more season 3!
