Wedding Dresses: Celtic Wedding Dresses

Celtic Wedding Dresses
For a Medieval Themed Wedding

Celtic wedding dresses are perfect for a medieval wedding theme.

Brides who want a true fairytale wedding may well crave a gorgeous celtic wedding gown or extravagant taffeta ballgown.

These dresses are usually far more expensive than ordinary white wedding dresses as they demand specialist tailoring skills for all the layers and intricate needlework, not to mention the corsetry on the tight bodices, common to medieval gowns.

Vintage bridal gowns can be simple with just a celtic inspired belt and trim detail or totally over the top with lashings of fabric. The time of year of your wedding will partly determine how "full-on" a dress you want to wear.

It's important to shop around online or ask to buy samples in order to save money. I've found a great dress below to get you started:

I simply LOVE this Celtic-inspired organza wedding dress with gorgeous intricate beading and flower embellishment detail.

Add to that the beautiful ribbon sleeve detail, lashings of layers and that tight bodice and you will look like a medieval princess on your big day! DO look at the detail on this dress via the link below - it's simply exquisite.

Why Choose Celtic Wedding Gowns?

Here's why many brides want a Celtic theme for their big day:

  • If you are inspired by fairytales, the Renaissance or just love the great film trilogy Lord of the Rings, you may well want a medieval themed wedding.

  • Celtic inspired gowns are perfect for idyllic weddings in castles and fit beautifully with either Scottish, Irish or Welsh celtic heritage, highly popular whether you're a Celt or not.

  • Unusual wedding gowns like these have an old-fashioned feel in keeping with traditional values. The Celtic knot symbolizes longevity for newly weds as it has no beginning or end.

  • A medieval theme can add so much sparkle and fun to an otherwise run of the mill wedding as the groom, bridesmaids and guests can dress up too!

Brides wanting a colored wedding dress will find that celtic inspired dresses look perfect in many different shades from deep purple, reminiscent of Kings and Queens, to subtle shades of dusky pink or deep blue, a popular 18th century color.

This dress by Rivendell Bridal is available in a variety of colors but looks especially good in turquoise.

This Medieval Bridal Fashions dress is period-inspired and made of dupioni iridescent silk.

With extensive boning, as worn by the Victorians, this is certainly not a wedding dress for the beach but it looks fabulous in an old castle setting or an English country garden.

Pale pink is a great alternative to ivory and certainly epitomises fairytales!
