1950's Vintage Bridal - Dresses

If you haven't visited my blog before you may not have seen my previous vintage bridal post, its the most viewed on my blog so you might like to check it out here.

One of my guilty pleasures in life is back to back episodes of Dont Tell The Bride, and since seeing the episode where she wore a 50s style dress I've been meaning to show y'all some of my fave 50's inspired gunás (dresses)!!!

This 1950's Ivory Halterneck Satin dress is just fab... Its from Vivienne of Holloway and comes in at £89.00 which is a flipping steal if you ask me... The petticoats come in @ £59 approx. I thilnk you could do so much with this style dress, for instance; red petticoat, red belt and red shoes (or whatever your color of choice is)
Check out the website here.

If your not too keen on the white dress, how about this amazing lbd from Dolly Dagger coming in @ £120.. I think it is simply stunning. It might not be everyones cup of tea, but I think it screams ellegance. Again you can tailor this to suit YOUR personality; perhaps a white bow, white gloves, and a white birdcage or fascinator.

This beauty is on ebay currently selling at £155. Its so plain and simple, once again imagine the personal touches you could add to this. Its also perfect if your not a huge fan of the halterneck styling that is commonly associated with 1950s style dresses.

My final pick is this short sleeved 50's style with the slightly longer skirt.I think this is a fab alternative to both bodice and halter style. I love the way the skirt cuts off just at the ankles, and still allows your shoes to be seen. It is from Bridal Vintage Apparel and comes in @ only £137.50. Link here!

I don't want to cram too much in to one post, so I am going to follow up with shoes and hair accessories.
