Wedding Planning




One of my favourite fashion eras is the 50s.  The glamour of the times, the emphasis on enhancing a woman’s curves and the healthy silhouettes are the main factor that make the fifties so appealing to me. 



To give you an idea about 50s style wedding dresses think about Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe or Liz Taylor’s first wedding(photo on the right).  They all look extremely glamorous and sensual because unlike other fashion eras, the 50s emphasized a woman’s curves in a very elegant way.  And that is the key word here: elegance.  Dresses in the 50s gave women a fabulous cleavage without losing elegance and style.


The fifties were a time for glamour; women were well groomed and tailored to look like their favourite Hollywood stars.  The fashion was extremely feminine and the “lady-like” look was generalized. 


The Fifties have some of the most romantic wedding dresses in fashion history.   50s style dresses are very delicate, demure and elegant.  It is from the glamorous fifties that I have chosen the vintage inspired wedding dresses below. 


The tea-length wedding dresses are perfect for casual weddings, second marriages and outdoor weddings.  They come from Stephanie Allin and Candy Anthony.
