1940s + Parisian Inspired Wedding Gowns

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:
