Many of this years 2020 bridal fashion inspirations are taken from decades past marked by exquisite fabrics and unique textures. We are seeing full coverage which allows for the imagination to soar in design with more space to apply the use of fabrics & details. This look turns up the volume on keeping hidden secrets concealed; rather than feeling matronly, it feels undeniably fashion-forward.

Today’s puff sleeves dresses have a Victorian twist with many creative versions. We are seeing details of smocking, empire waistlines & a lovely ease of character with these new dress designs.

Erica Elizabeth Designs headpieces and accessories are designed and always have been with these tres chic romantic fashions in mind.

Below are examples of this beautiful look. Touch each image to go to the suggested accessory link.


Alexander McQueen With Love Charm

The Alexander McQueen label, with creative director is Sarah Burton, in my option is by far one of the most innovative design houses today. With their Roman Gothic/Victorian-inspired designs, our Love Charm headdress would be a perfect match for these style of dresses.

Loewe with Madame Butterfly

I love this flowing empire waistline dress by Loewe Collections with the use of shear fabrics which is pure poetry. We are showing our Madame Butterfly hair pins which were inspired by Fanny Braun's sense of fashion in the wonderful film Bright Star about John Keats.

Danielle Frankel with Miss Bennett

I love this Regency era empire waistline dress by Danielle Frankel. It is a wonderful example of feminine style & grace. We are showing our Miss Bennett String of Plump Freshwater Pearls which were inspired Elizabeth Bennett from Jane Austen’s beloved Pride & Prejudice.

Brock Collection with La Vie En Rose

Another beautiful Empire waist gown by Brock Collections deserves only the best, so we are paring this dress with our La Vie En Rose Jeweled Headband with subtle accents of dusty rose.

Honor & Ingrid veil

I love everything about this romantic tiered sleeve lace dress by Honor. I think our playful Ingrid veil with its torn strips of English silk tulle & long silk Lily-of-the-valley dangles is made for this dress.

Edem & Touch of Whimsy

What an absolute delight it is to see gowns like this cotton turn of the century inspired 2-piece ensemble by Russian design house Edem Couture. We are paring our Touch of Whimsy handmade silk flower hair pins with this dress.
