What Is A Victorian-Style Wedding Dress?

There are many factors involved in characterizing a Victorian wedding dress. The fabric, the cut and the accents all play in role in each distinguishing, vintage feature.


Corsets to cinch the waist are one of the most recognizable pieces of the Victorian wedding gown puzzle. It’s one of the most defining features of this style genre. But along with the corset, comes the full ball gown-style skirt. Accents with ruffles or jacquard fabrics, it too pairs rather nicely making a classic, princess look come to life for the bride.

Satin fabrics, beading and some light embroidery are a few other signifiers of the Victorian-style wedding dress. Long sleeves are also really popular in this bridal realm but shorter styles – like cap sleeves or even sleevless – can be paired with long gloves to amp up the fashion era that’s inspired you.


When it comes to a woman’s body and what kind of shape a Victorian wedding dress is suited best for, there is no such thing. Any body is the right body for one of these gowns because they accentuate all of the “right” parts of a woman’s body.


Cinching and tightening the waist and emphasizing the bust are two of the biggest benefits in opting for a Victorian design. And because of the addition of a corset in many of these dresses, it makes that tiny midsection an even more a substantial part of the overall finishing look.


This crystal-embellished ball gown is everything beautiful about bridal. But even more so, its corset back and intricate detailing speak to a Victorian lover’s heart. With a bout of black, you’ll get a bold design with all the wonders of a rogue princess.


Blend both vintage accents and contemporary beauty into one with this design from Winnie Couture. The faux corset bodice and button closure speak to our Victorian souls and the textured organza skirt makes it a trendy choice for our more youthful brides.

This pleated bridal gown has princess style sewn into every inch of its design. From the off-the-shoulder sleeves to the voluminous skirt, there’s something quite royal – and Victorian – about the end result. There’s even some intricate beadwork on the bodice that amp of the glam.
