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.
