vintage 1950s: wedding inspiration for the ages!

Fashion in the 1950s was so beautifully feminine. Dresses were cut to accentuate the female shape and it is no wonder that hundreds of us simply adore the fashion of that period.

Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell really encapsulate the 1950s look- fitted curve hugging dresses with a splash of colour added with a sash or partly fitted dresses with a full skirt and petticoat.

There is no shortage of similarly inspired dresses. Tea length dresses (about 4 inches away from the ankle) are perfect for showing off full skirts.

The classic full skirt in this case with beautiful ruffles or with a fitted lace bodice.

Add a splash of colour with a colourful bow, I love how this one does not fully go around the whole dress but is instead a little surprise at the back of the dress.

A structured fitted dress is always beautiful. I like how this dress is figure hugging.

Finally, this dress isn’t strictly 1950s or indeed bridal white but I feel like it is a modern interpretation. It is very fitted and at the same time has a lot of movement. Red for a wedding dress?
