Welcome back to our lovers of all things vintage. Today we present our top five bridesmaid dresses that are designed for ladies in the 20 to 35 year age range as well as fans of Downton Abbey, Gatsby, or Titanic styled attire.
Nataya has an incredible line for our older audience, including second time brides and mothers of the uniting couple. But today, we are focusing on her dresses that are aimed at the younger crowd, especially for vintage garden parties, premier nights, or events with a roaring 20s theme.
Vintage brides, pay attention. Your bridesmaids will adore you for choosing one of these stylish gowns. Here’s our guide to help you choose the perfect bridesmaid dress for your wedding.
For brides whose gowns have a long train and plan to marry in a chapel, fix your eyes on the Titanic Dress in lavender. It will also look amazing in a garden or hotel wedding when paired with brides in an Edwardian or Victorian style gown, such as those seen in Downton Abbey.
Black bridesmaid dresses are perfect for Old Hollywood, gypsy, jazz, vintage, or boho weddings. This dress is ideal for such trendy ceremonies.
The sapphire Short Party Dress radiates beauty in the sunset and is well suited for wedding ceremonies held during the later hours of the day. This dress begs to be worn at Gatsby, jazz, or dance-all-night weddings.
If you don’t love sapphire colors, perhaps you will love the ruby shades. The Othelia Ruby Dress fits all of the aforementioned types of ceremonies as well as traditional and tea weddings. The most important feature of this dress is that it is available in all sizes, including plus sizes. No more agonizing! You may choose anyone you’d like to be your bridesmaid because this dress flatters every type of figure and size. So far, this dress has been most popular for jazz and dance style weddings.
Finally, we conclude our tour of the bridesmaid closet with this romantic dress by Nataya.
The lavender and beige dress is superb for bridesmaids who are part of a garden, home, or beach wedding ceremony. The petite style of the dress fits sweet and romantic personalities.

Recently, we chatted about Nataya’s line of vintage style wedding dresses for first time brides-to-be. Today, we explore Nataya’s line for brides over 40 as well as those marrying for the second time.
Let’s start with one of our bestsellers, the Nataya Titanic Dress in sage. The beige, nude and sage palette of this gorgeous dress combine with its inimitable Edwardian style to look Downton Abbey’esque while exuding Titanic elegance. It’s an affordable choice for a wedding dress as well as for the mother of the bride.
And now for our high tea ladies and lovers of all things vintage, we present our pink Victorian Vintage Style Tea Party Dress, which looks amazing for a home garden wedding and will definitely fit within your budget.
If you plan to dance the night away at a vintage style jazz party, you must check out the Othelia dress in ruby shades. This dress pairs perfectly with 1940s or 1950s style rock-n-roll shoes. Opt for pin toe shoes to achieve a truly Gatsby look. You can accessorize to garner a more 1920s or 1940s flair.
The Alternative Empire Dress with its unique bubbled hemline looks amazing on younger ladies who are marrying for the second time. The empire waist of the dress looks so romantic and flatters most figures, unlike a regular style waist. It slims and trims with its stylish cut. Choose a vividly colored floral wreath with this gorgeous gown.
Finally, we are delighted to share the Spanish Style Lace Dress. This romantic pearl colored dress has a fun, flamenco style skirt that is perfect for a garden, boat, or beach wedding. It is great for brides of any age.
Regardless of your age or stage in life, we wish you a joyous wedding!
Up next is our 1920s inspired wedding dress that is so Daisy Buchanan. Choose a cute cloche hat or the Edith Hat, either of which will provide a superb alternative to a birdcage veil. However, if you absolutely must have a birdcage veil, this dress will live up to your expectations and look the part. A flapper style headband is another fine choice.
Our Edwardian style ivory dress is perfect for our younger Downton Abbey fans. Its petal-style sleeves slim your arms while the hemline of the dress makes you want to dance all night long. The dress is ideal for home garden weddings, small chapel weddings, indoor weddings and most certainly weddings at the beach. However, this dress won’t stand out in large hotels or busy restaurants. Keep this dress in the smaller venues.
Unlike the previous dress, our tea length Titanic Dress is a bit more versatile and can be paired with a vast array of different accessories. It boasts a Downton Abbey look when worn at home garden ceremonies. But if you pair this dress with a flapper style headband or cloche hat, you may just need to dance on over to the nearest jazz café, where the Charleston awaits.
The antique wedding dress in ivory is fantastic for all lovers of Downton Abbey, Titanic, Edwardian times and even Jane Austin. The elegant empire waist and eye-catching ornamentation fit splendidly with a vintage theme.
We hope you find just what you’re looking for and wish you happy shopping!
