Spring is here and that means wedding season is upon us. So I thought for Vintage Photo Tuesday that I would share some real life 1950’s inspiration for future brides and for those who just love looking at vintage photos (like many of my lovely readers).
The bride and her bridesmaids in the most beautiful gowns.
In my vintage photo travels, I have never seen a 1950’s wedding dress with such an incredible scalloped neckline before. So very different, and I love it!
A very stylish bride and groom (check out the grooms tie). Oh and that bouquet must of weighed a ton!
The most fashionable family/friends award goes to this brides entourage! High Fives all around to keeping up with our bride. Plus we have another very different wedding gown. Almost looks like a pinafore style from what I can see (do you agree?).
The Mother/Daughter Dance.
I absolutely adore when men wear a white tuexedo jacket, black pants and bowtie. It’s such a handsome look and especially on ones wedding day.
The Wedding Cake. Sometimes good, sometimes bad and sometimes non existent (we skipped it at my wedding). Our newly married couple in this next photo, don’t really seem to know how to feel about what they eating. Maybe they are thinking they spent way to much money on something edible?
The wedding party arrives in a very nice car.
Not all brides need to wear a white dress on their wedding, a classy 2 piece suit will do the job as well.
Last but not least, I’m going to leave you with a photo that technically does not fit this weeks theme but it is just so awesome, I had to share it.
The 1950’s bridal shower. Oh my goodness! Those dresses! The doll cakes! The little umbrellas! Could this photo get any more fantastic? Love love love.
