Ok, so I have probably been watching too much Downton Abbey. But honestly? It is like vintage fashion porn! Mary Crawley has some amazing costumes, and headpieces for that matter, in season three. I would love any excuse to wear one and a wedding is just the right excuse. Any brides out there dreaming of a wedding in the times of Downton Abbey can find inspiration from these 1920s headpieces I found on Etsy. Who knows if the groom will go all the way with the Downton Abbey theme, but it is worth a shot right? Their wedding fashion is just too hard to resist!
1920s Headpieces Perfect For A Downton Abbey Wedding
I love this one because of the lace! Made by AgnesHart on Etsy.com. Priced at $130.00. Here is what she says about the headpiece,
This is just the loveliest,delicate cream coloured lace.It is extremely old,I believe it to be dating from some time in the 1800s.It is made of the finest silk. I have sandwiched it between two layers of traditional silk tulle net so it can have enough strength to come out and be worn and cherished once more by a beautiful woman or girl! (and then hopefully passed on to her daughter).
Made by WillowMoone on Etsy. A chic and glamorous vintage 1920s headpiece. This one is a bit more with all the work hand sewing the crystals, at $480.00. Willow Moone says this,
Luxuriously sheer tulle headpiece embellished with shimmering crystals in an Art Deco sunburst design. Completely hand embroidered with hundreds of sparkling crystals hand sewn with invisible thread onto the finest illusion bridal tulle. Reminiscent of the glamorous Ziegfeld Follies.
