My Vintage Wedding: The Outfits

Sharing all the details of my wedding could easily turn into death-by-photos, so I'm going to gently share a few posts over the next few weeks.  Today I want to share details of what we wore, with my description in the style of wedding announcements from old newspapers.

My Vintage Wedding

The bride was angelically elegant in a floor-sweeping halterneck bias cut gown of ivory silk.  A heavily embellished band of beads, sequins and rhinestones edged the neckline and crossed under the bust, dropping down to encircle the back of the waist.  A headband of radiant stars adorned the cascading waves of the bride's hair, and a fingertip ivory veil of sheerest tulle completed the heavenly ensemble.  The bride held a large 'Glamelia' bouquet trimmed with silver ribbon.  Bridesmaids were bold and leggy in cobalt blue lace, wearing silver hairbands and shoes to complement the silver beading of the bride's gown.  Each of the five young ladies held a smaller version of a Glamelia bouquet with trailing ribbons in ivory and silver.  The two flowergirls were sweetly pretty in navy lace, and held small bouquets of ivory ostrich feathers.  The Groom was especially dapper,  wearing a two piece black suit with waistcoat, and sporting a daring Kentucky tie in black.

  2. Ah, you looked so radiant, I love these pictures. And how fab to get some on a pier, I especially love those :) I never did ask you how you did your hair in the end, as I know you were struggling with it; you certainly got some good waves going in the end. I can't believe you made the veil and bouquets!! I'm seriously impressed. Can't wait for the future posts, give me all your wedding wisdom! xxx

  5. You look so lovely! Your dress is absolutely gorgeous on you, and I love your crown of stars and veil. Your hubby looks so dapper as well, and I love the fun touch of the Kentucky tie. I love that there's a distinctly vintage feel to both of your looks, but it's also timelessly classic. Congratulations again on your nuptials!

  14. I love how happy you both look, it's wonderful to see both bride and groom looking so chuffed on what is an incredibly intense day! Your gown, veil and shoes are dreamy - perfect 1930s bride. The groom and his best man also look fantastic, I especially love that they are wearing hats and Kentucky ties - such a nice and refreshing change from the hipster beard and suspenders + no jacket cliche that is all the rage here in Australia at the moment. Really beautiful wedding photos, your photographer did a great job!
