Forget about the big white designer wedding and take your vows in vintage, after all the thrift junkie inside you wouldn’t want to compromise on individuality just because you are a bride-to-be. Gemma Huckle talks vintage wedding essentials.

As a former assistant in a bridal shop, I have always been drawn to weddings like a moth to a flame. So many women dream about how they would like their big day to be and how they want to look. Now I wouldn’t necessarily put myself down as the marrying type, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about it (ahem, seen THE dress actually).

There are some amazing contemporary dresses out there at the moment but somehow, for me, they just don’t cut it. Buying and hunting for vintage gives you an inner sense of achievement and makes you feel really special, but be warned if you dream of becoming a wedding belle, you could turn into bridezilla overnight if patience isn’t one of your traits!

Achieving thrift-thrill is a tough challenge to set yourself but it’s one you can’t refuse. It will make the most important day of your life one to really remember.  Get your pen ready to add the following to your wedding wish list before uttering those all important words “I do”…

    I wore a beautiful 1960’s French Lace vintage wedding dress from the Vintage Wedding Dress Company for my wedding back in September 2008, I had so many wonderful comments on it; but the best thing was knowing I had something truly original!
