|50's Vintage Wedding Dress by JoJosRetroandVintage|
I love 50's and 60's vintage, even if those beautiful wasp-waisted dresses from the 1950's will never even come close to fitting me! There's something just so elegantly simple about the styling of that era that makes me drool. Perhaps recently popularised by Matthew Weiner's hit TV show Mad Men, this era has become increasingly looked to by those brides wanting a vintage inspired wedding that still speaks of feminine style. Clearly I am not alone in having a bit of a fifties fetish! There are so many different options with this era, but today we are going to look at what makes a fifties style wedding so incredibly fabulous.
For your bridal gown, think tea length dresses that sit on the waist, with or without a fabulous tulle underskirt.
Take a look at the fabulous vintage 50's white wedding dress above from JoJosRetroandVintage - it's so cute and best of all, it's the genuine article!
|Scoop Neck Retro Dress by missbrache|
If you are looking for accessories that will recreate a sense of 50's vintage glam, then I think it is important to remember that simplicity is best. Much of the style of the time is so elegant and classic because it was simple. With timeless and feminine 50's accessorising in my mind, today I spent a great deal of time playing around with a few new headpieces for our etsy store.
|Vintage Ivory Satin Hair Bow by White Poppy Bridal|
The final product? This super cute ivory satin head bow! I think it's very reminiscent of the late 50's or early 60's. Worn on its own, or teamed with a birdcage veil, a headpiece like this is perfect for recreating a little vintage glamour.
What I love most about this piece is that it won't detract from those classic lines of a tea length dress, not to mention the fact that there is something just irresistibly adorable about a hair bow.
Fifties glam for weddings!
