Vintage Wedding Ideas--Bridal Gowns1930's and 1950's













Vintage or retro is a quite popular wedding theme in nowadays. Besides old-fashioned decorations will bring out a good feeling of old days, an antique or vintage inspired dress will add excellent vintage feeling. Additionally, a vintage dress usually costs less than a designer one. Bride who wants a retro or vintage style wedding should first decide on which decade she wants, then goes to check the major fashion styles of the decades. I personally suggest the 1930's and1950's which are the most stylish and glamor in my eyes.

1930's Vintage Bridal Style

The 1930's style is one of my favorite vintage styles. A natural slim silhouette became the fashion and took the place of the 1920's boyish cut. The hemline also dropped suddenly ankle and lower. A loon sleek appearance with draping fabric is crucial for brides to create 1930's feeling. These features reveal softly women's curve and beauty.


1950's Vintage Bridal Styles

The 1950’s is the most popular vintage wedding idea. It has also become a major tendency of wedding dress trends in 2011. You can see lots of designers have got inspirations from this decade, like Justin Alexander or Paloma Blanca and others. Bridal gowns of the 1950’s were usually modest. It doesn't show a lot of skin, featuring sleeves and not-too-low neckline. The 1950’s gown is also extremely feminine. A quite emphasized waist with poof-up full skirt creates a big hourglass shape. Lace is another common characteristic. A pair of tall thin heels wore underneath the tea length skirt shows perfect ankles. Bodice with fitted bust, lace layers, upstanding collars, lace boleros matching a strapless dress, full skirt with flutter hem will make its way into the 1950's style.

Other Vintage Bridal Styles

1920's fashion is about flapper. A flapper dress is straight, tight and sleeveless, with the dropped waistline to the hips. For brides, you can select a flapper style white dress. A cap veil pleated with Chantilly lace or a chaplet headpiece will add much more touch of 1920's feeling.

A distinctive 1940’s style gown has pointed long sleeves with a slight sweetheart neckline high on the neckline. A V-shape line emphasizes the w

The 1960's wedding fashion has seen lots of familiar features to us, like empire waistline and the A-line silhouette. Bride who wants a unique look of this decade can look for something with a bubble sheath silhouette, hemline at ankles, 3/4 lace sleeves or Watteau train which are unique styles of that decade.
