Remember the days when we used to prance around the drawing room and have picnics out in the estate gardens? Neither do we. But television period pieces like Downton Abbey allow us to experience that long-gone past and to drool over the exquisite dresses women used to wear on the daily—and don’t even get us started on the bridal gowns. Or do, we don’t mind. Is your Pinterest board and Anomalie lookbook ready, though? 

Keep reading to see how to add Downton-Abbey glam to your wedding gown!

Lady Mary’s First Wedding Gown

Lady Mary’s poised style never disappointed. For her first wedding, she donned an ivory, long-sleeved column dress featuring a drop waist and semi-sheer sleeves. The piece was comprised of a laced front panel and chapel-length train, beaded with dreamy rice pearls and Swarovski crystals.

Michelle Dockery and the cast and crew of #Downton Abbey had to be exceptionally careful with her wedding dress when it came to shooting the big day.

Lady Edith’s First Wedding Gown

Lady Edith’s style evolved beautifully throughout the series. The first time she wore a wedding dress, she opted for a cream, long-sleeved silk satin number featuring a nuanced, flower-embroidered gathering at the hip. The look was elegantly finished with an embellished silk cape.


Lady Rose’s Reception Dress

Lady Rose swooped into the plot with her fearless philosophy and bold style—and her reception wedding dress was quick to follow suit. The ecru silk piece featured a sleeveless column silhouette and a beaded tulle overlay with sparkly gold accents.

Lady Edith’s Second-Chance Dress

The second time was the charm for Lady Edith as she gleamed in an ivory, short-sleeved lace dress featuring an embroidered sheer neckline and sleeves. This time, she kept it short and sweet—the layered hem of her dress grazed the top of her ankles. Accessories included a beaded headband and a tiered veil – a #royalwedding must.
