Vintage Parasol Friday, May 25 2012 

Why not have a vintage parasol at your wedding. Perfect way to keep cool and chic during a summer wedding outdoors. Now you can still get married at the beach, and not get sunburned!

A few finds for your wedding….

Turquoise vintage lace parasol

Pink lace vintage umbrella

Hand painted vintage umbrella

All of these were tracked down on an ebay auction.

Parasols could be used for any occasion. So purchasing one is an awesome idea, but if you only want one for that special day. I really like Bella Umbrella which rents out vintage and elegant umbrellas for your wedding date.

 

Happy Flapper Friday everyone!

I Was Blown Away By This Photo

Such a cute shot of a vintage wedding with the bride and groom literally swept up by the wind of it all. That wedding was a breeze. I also love this gown that fits so nicely formfitting and then has a ridiculously full train and veil.

1930’s Rayon & Silk Bridal Gown Wednesday, May 16 2012 

1930's Rayon & Silk Bridal Gown

Here’s a photo of a gorgeous vintage 30’s wedding dress made of silk and rayon. Very common in this era to have rayon blends, as it was fairly new to the mainstream fashions. I really enjoy the decor on the bodice that wraps around and continues on the train.

1940’s Wedding Hoop Dress Monday, May 14 2012 

Definitely found a wedding dress with a hoop skirt. I heard these are really hard to sit down in. Anybody ever wear one that knows first hand???? Another ebay find.

Lace Over Monday, May 14 2012 

Here is a nice 40s/50s dress that is made of lace and satin. Stumbled upon it on ebay.

Wedding Photo Friday, May 11 2012 

Here’s a photo from a 1930’s wedding. I love the pinstripe pants with the checkered tie. Check out the bride’s collar! Love this photo!

1940’s Dress and Veil Friday, May 11 2012 

1940’s Wedding gown with an extra long train, found it’s matching head piece too….

The dress and veil look like they would be so light and airy. You wouldn’t have to worry about sweating the small stuff at the reception.

This pair was found on ebay.

Forty-Something Wednesday, May 9 2012 

Forty-Something

This ivory wedding gown is from the forties. I love how long the train is. It has a great shape overall and has a very delicate look from the massive use of lace ❤

Found this for sale on an ebay auction.

Thirties for Your Wedding Wednesday, May 9 2012 

This bridal gown is from the 1930’s. I like it because it has such a delicate look, and intricate beading in an simplistic pattern.

1930’s Wedding Dress Monday, May 7 2012 

 

Probably late 1930’s early 1940’s with really puffy sleeves. I don’t think I would want the puffy sleeves on this particular dress, but not sure if the material could handle alterations.

Would you make any alterations?
