If you know any brides who are still trying to decide what they should wear when they walk down the aisle, you might want to point them toward the beautiful vintage wedding dress patterns they can find listed below.
One of my favorite things to do as a little girl was to sneak into my parents’ closet and take a look at my mom’s gown from their wedding day. Like she did with most of her clothes back then, she stitched together the lovely satin fabric herself.
It definitely inspired me when I started daydreaming about what I might wear for my own big day. Luckily, I still have plenty of time to figure that out. There are clearly many options from the past to choose from, as you can see for yourself.
Take a look and let us know if we missed any vintage wedding dress patterns you remember seeing brides wearing back in the day.

1. 1960s Crochet Dress
I’m not sure the cap is something I’d walk down the aisle in, but the gown itself is gorgeous.
2. 1920s Long-Sleeved Bridal Gown
3. 1960s Vogue Couturier Dress
4. 1970s Vogue Bridal Dress
This reminds me so much of what my mom wore in her wedding, but I’m pretty sure she left the hat at home for her big day.
5. 1950s Collared Gown
6. 1960s Christian Dior Dress And Veil
7. 1940s Vogue Bridal Gown
The “deep yoke” cut on the top of this throwback gown definitely adds a touch of nostalgic charm.
8. 1970s Lace Detail Wedding Dress
As you can probably tell, this pattern comes from 1979 when the puffy trend (later popular in the ’80s) started seeping through fashion.
9. 1960s High-Waist Vogue Bridal Gown
10. 1970s Crochet Gown And Cape
The cape might remind you more of something you’d give a baby for their first birthday, but it still adds a classy touch to this gown.
11. 1940s Full Skirt Bridal Dress
This definitely makes me think of the timeless gown Grace Kelly wore for her royal wedding.
12. 1960s Lace Sleeve Bridal Gown
I would want to sew those sleeves on to all of my dresses if I had this back in the day!
