• {Inspired By} Lady Mary’s Bridal Style from Downton Abbey

    Who knew that a show about a British aristocratic household in the early 1900’s on PBS could be so addicting?  If you’re not watching Downton Abbey, you may be the only one.  This season premiered with a long-awaited wedding, so you know I was inspired.

    I thought Lady Mary’s bridal style would translate today into a simple modern look, with a sleek and simple boat neck gown, a pretty laurel headband, and a Calla lily bouquet, of course.

    The J.Crew gown is simple, but the back is a bit more daring, to add a little drama to your look.  The gold laurel wreath headband is a modern take on Lady Mary’s own.  The calla lily bouquet should be small and simple.  Add a cathedral length veil (in my opinion, it should always be a birdcage veil or a cathedral veil and nothing in between) and you’re the modern Lady Mary.

    So tell me, are you a Downton Abbey addict as well?  Do you love Lady Mary’s bridal style, or do you think it should stay in the 1900’s?  I personally think it would be gorgeous on the right bride with a simple and modern style.

      Hello. We at Lucky Sixpence (vintage tiaras, bands, cobs and jewellery) love lady Mary’s bridal look. We thought one of our bands were rather like Lady Mary’s…and even better it is made with vintage original prices. Have a look at https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=374323589309778&set=pb.111764752232331.-2207520000.1357761879&type=3&theater

       I'm busy working on holiday gift guides and gathering discounts for some Black Friday and Small Biz Saturday lists. If you are a small business offering a discount that you would like included for small biz Saturday, please do the following: (do not leave a comment here to be included although feel free to tag your favorite shops so they can email me!) 1. Email me at chandra@ohlovelyday.com 2. Use subject line SMALL BIZ SATURDAY DISCOUNT 3. Include your Company name linked to your website with the coupon code and when it is valid, as well as any exclusions (ex: US only, must spend over $30, etc) Due to the number of emails I receive and that my computer time is limited with a baby I won't be able to respond to every email. I will only include shops I feel are a fit with my blog and readers due to space limitations. You can check the post on Saturday to see the full list. I encourage everyone to shop small and handmade this holiday season!
