vintage 1960s: groovy wedding inspiration

Oh the joys of the 1960s! Flower power, free roaming hippies and of course the period when hemlines went sky high! So if ever you required an excuse to wear a short dress to your wedding then vintage 1960s is it!

1. the short wedding dress : vintage 1960s

I found this gorgeous photo of style setter Audrey Hepburn during her wedding in the 1960s and one of real couple in the V&A Barbara and Rodney. Both ladies have beautiful stylish hats to match their short wedding dresses.

Some modern short white dresses that have elements of this vintage theme are here!

2. empire waists and boatneck necklines

Classic 1960s wedding dresses have two common trends. The very flattering just below the bust empire waist and the collar bone exposing boatneck (or bateau) cut. Here are some vintage and vintage replica dresses which showcase this style.
