If you’re a non-traditional gal who is about to get married, may I suggest a fabulous alternative to the long, trained wedding gown? How about a 50s tea length wedding dress? A growing trend is toward more creativity in planning that special day. And vintage themes are on the top of the list because they’re so fun!
Going by our own 50′s wedding dress sales, the 1950s is definitely one of the more popular eras for a wedding theme. Whether it’s rock and roll, rockabilly, Las Vegas or vintage Hollywood theme there is a perfect 50s wedding dress or 50s inspired dress that will complement your vintage dream wedding! Because the fashions from that decade are so classy and timeless, this look also works well for second weddings, garden weddings, town hall ceremonies and destination weddings.
The 50s look is a great option for brides looking for something more informal, but still very elegant and glamorous. The fit and flared silhouette is flattering on pretty much all figures. Even though finding a one of a kind, authentic vintage 50′s wedding dress can be very exciting, they are pretty scarce. So you need to allow lots of extra time to find the perfect one, as many are in very tiny sizes or not in pristine condition. Luckily there are new reproductions that will give you that same fabulous 50s look!
Check out these photos of Liz Taylor and Audrey Hepburn for some vintage wedding fashion inspiration!
And here’s a little collage I put together featuring “The Sweetheart”, our 50s style wedding dress from our Classic Dame line,along with pretty blue purse, shoes and hair flower that I think would look lovely with it!
