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. 🙂

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.

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?

Vintage Mother of the Vintage Bride Monday, May 7 2012 

How wonderful would it be to have not just the bride and groom dressed in vintage. There are tons of looks that work for the mother of the bride. Have a classic vintage look that is not only chic, but compliments the woman of the hour’s mother.

A beautiful 1920’s gown may have the mother of the bride doing some charleston.

This 1940’s dress would make a statement at any spring wedding.

Here is another 1940’s dress that has leaf decor for a autumn vintage themed wedding.

Another 1940’s style gown, it helps to emphasize an hourglass figure on the mother of bride.

A little bit retro/vintage, a dress from the 1950’s. Don’t be afraid to show some leg!

This gorgeous 1930’s dress has that vintage Hollywood style for a famous winter wedding.
