Before selecting any dress, it is always good to get yourself familiar with the various vintage wedding styles:
In the 1920s, it is common to have dresses embodied the flapper with fun dresses and hemlines that may make your mother blush. Lace, silks, and netting were quite popular in those days which are in line with the Art Deco movement.
Then, in the 1930’s, sparkling rhinestones are the fashions. Hollywood played a major influence on the styles and designs. Dresses made from silk or satin were common then.
The 1940’s brides loved to display a glamor look by wearing padded shoulders, sweetheart necklines and long point sleeves. Princess gowns were popular in the 1950s with wedding dresses usually designed in ballerina styles and full skirts. Being elegant and clean, you can borrow something from the 1930’s Hollywood glamor and blend it to match the style you like.
With the rise of all-inclusive hotel wedding packages, it seems that many modern weddings are very predictable. There’s the ceremony, the champagne reception, the photos, the wedding breakfast, speeches, cutting the cake, and a first dance… They even provide you with a master of ceremonies to announce each stage of the day as it progresses (watch out for the black-suited woman with her hair in a bun and a monotonic voice). Perhaps you’d like something different.
