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.

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.
