retro wedding hair & makeup
love the vintage turquoise car and her polka dot dress!
source unknown… if you know who the original photographer is, please let me know so i can update.
My husband and I eloped. Now we are having a wedding for family and friends. He loves the 1940s and I love Paris (we met there, I really want it in the theme some how.) and I am having trouble finding a dress idea that could fit this. Any suggestions?
I love BHLDN and their beautiful wedding gowns so I’ll start there, here are three adorable dresses with a vintage feel:
Aiguille Gown $1,200
Fairy Song Gown $1,400
Lita Gown $2,400
- Other Brands -
Corrina Gown by J. Crew $495
If you aren’t afraid of a little color and want an authentic vintage dress, I found this gorgeous 1940s Gold Gown on Etsy from TrunkofDresses for $325
Look for something with sleeves, even if they are just cap sleeves. Strapless wedding dresses and sweetheart necklines were not big in the 1940s. I think that a 1940s theme fits perfectly with Paris… a glamorous era meets a glamorous location.
And I’ll even post a hair suggestion for you:
i can’t get enough of this bride’s star headpiece that she made herself which was inspired by ziegfield girl. also digging her hubby’s retro hair style that reminds me of my old ken doll!
i love these wedding invitations, they remind me of the beatles!
