I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately, what is it about vintage weddings that I love so much? Is it the sense of old-fashioned romance? Is it the colours? Or the timeless style? Probably all of the above. I think vintage style hints at an elegance and romance from a bygone era that is hopelessly romantic.
Today I thought I’d have a look at some ‘proper’ vintage weddings (you know, weddings from the past!) to check out their gorgeous style.
I have always adored Grace Kelly for her elegance and style, so it’s not surprising that she was stunningly beautiful on her wedding day in 1956. I love her lace veil, the lace detailing on her gown and the simplicity of the ivory skirt.
Apart from the stunning dresses, other elements that can be included in vintage styled weddings that I love include diamantes and beads, pearls, pastel colours, lace, feathers, old frames and birdcages.
I’ll leave you with some of my favourite inspiration boards…
