When she comes, the whole forest holds their breath in anticipation. The forest nymph, barefoot and wreathed in leaves, wears a flowing, layered gown covered in antique lace.

Whether it’s your first wedding or a new grand beginning, take a walk off the beaten path in one of these forest-fairy inspired Nataya gowns.
For a bride, no other aspect of her wedding day is as crucial as finding the perfect dress to walk down the aisle in. Dress shopping inspires more excitement and trepidation in brides than any other task related to their big day. However, no bride wants to look quite like any other. Many fashion-forward brides are instead looking to the past for inspiration; enter 1920 style wedding dresses. Considered novel and daring for the era, 1920 style wedding dresses eschewed the mounds of fabric and restrictive corsets of past styles. With shorter hemlines and straighter cuts, 1920 style wedding dresses have flattered generations of modern brides since their inception.
The typical wedding dress color is white, but 1920 style wedding dresses put that tradition aside. Bold colors, such as red, purple, or gold became accepted for wedding dresses of the era. Many modern brides take inspiration from this trend and opt for a gown in a show-stopping color. To pull off the look, simply pick the color that flatters your skin tone the most. Consider opting for a more modestly cut gown if you pick a vibrant shade; the color should speak for itself, not compete with the cut of your dress.
Adornment was everything on 1920 style wedding dresses: layer upon layer of frills, pearl detailing, rosettes, and embroidery enhanced the clean lines of these dresses. Pearl detailing can be particularly useful along the hemline for adding movement on the dance floor, or for adding an extra bit of flair to a simple bodice. Rosettes and frills can look marvelous on the same dress. Paired together, they conjure a romantic sweetness that is hard to match. A bit of bold feathering may be just the embellishment a daring bride needs for her dress. Embroidery, however, typically looks best against the quiet backdrop of a simply cut and light colored frock.
Accessories for 1920 style wedding dresses are limited only by the imagination of the wearer. Cloche hats with feathers or hat pins, long and loopy pearl necklaces, velvet trimmed shrugs, beaded shawls, and chunky heeled pump shoes all compliment this style of wedding dress perfectly.
1920 style wedding dresses and accessories incorporate so many lovely and romantic design elements; there is truly a design for every bride who wishes to add a little fashion-forward style from the past to her big day.
