We’re Loving: 1950s Wedding Dresses (and Accessories, too!)

Posted by: Dareth Colburn

Everything old is new again. Again. I think when summer rolls around brides-to-be (and the rest of us) can get a little nostalgic for times past – whether or not we lived them ourselves! 1950s wedding fashion is always a good bet if you’re a lover of all things vintage. It’s cute. It’s femme. And there’s nothing dowdy about it. For once I’m going to say that choosing wedding accessories is easy since there are plenty retro-inspired jewelry sets and headpieces to choose from. Here are some looks to inspire you and a few of my choices for cute must-haves for the 1950s wannabe.

The 1950s bridal style is playful, for sure. A big hat… a winter hat. Lace gloves or even fingerless bridal gloves! Have fun with your look and you’ll look amazing.

Or keep it super simple with a wedding jewelry set that gives your look just a little bit of sparkle but lets your 1950s wedding dress take center stage.

Tea length or ballet length – it’s all gorgeous.

This is a great look to pair with the new lace trend that has been setting the bridal runways on fire! Opt for a little lace or a lot like the bride in the picture above.

Don’t forget the accessories! I love this CZ necklace and earring set and an adorable satin clutch for their old fashioned charm and, in the case of the clutch, usefulness. It never hurts to have somewhere to stash your lippy!
