After the flapper years of the 1920s, next came the stylish 1930s. This is my favourite decade because elegance was the name of the game. The very flattering bias cut which allows fabric to drape beautifully became hugely popular.
1. vintage 1930s wedding dress: sleek and long
Long gowns were popular as both day and night wear with sequins and beads used to add sparkle to evening wear. Here is a picture of English actress Anna Neagle in evening wear and a girl in Dallas in what would be considered day wear yet both looks are very suitable for any girl’s dream wedding.
As always here are some modern gowns which I feel fit within this genre. The simple cut of the gowns is accentuated by beautiful sequins or finished with lace.

Here are a few structured gowns with have an art-deco feel. I love the structured ruffles in the second picture, somehow despite having such a regular shape, the dress appears to still flow as any 1930s vintage inspired dress really should.
