Here we have another gorgeous 1930’s vintage wedding gown. You can tell the era by the hip hugging mermaid like skirt. A nice deep v-neck with ruffle sleeves adds a simple touch of elegance to make you feel like a Hollywood bride. No way to tell if this is her husband or a vampire in the photo, but vintage gowns are sure to attract even the most soulless of men. 🙂

1920’s Bridal Shoes Wednesday, Jul 18 2012 

To continue the trend, here is another pair of 1920’s style satin shoes with beaded embroidery on the vamp of the shoe. The heels have a nice cinched waist look reminiscent of French styling, along with a pointed toe.

Vintage Bridal Shoes Tuesday, Jul 17 2012 

 

These heels have the characteristics of shoes from the 1920’s. Cream colored heels with intricate beading for the bride to walk down the aisle in.

 

Simple Mary Jane like strap and a low heel for dancing the night away with the man of your dreams…. In your dreams he’s a better dancer than you anyways.
