Vintage Wedding Dresses

Wedding Dresses are usually a once in a lifetime purchase, so it is not a surprise that the hunt for the perfect wedding dress might take months and even years for some brides. The idea is to look your best on your special day, to be unique and remembered for years to come for how beautiful and unique you looked on your wedding day.

An option to follow if you are after a unique wedding gown is to buy a vintage wedding dress. Vintage clothing has become very fashionable in the past few years and one of the great advantages of buying vintage clothing is that you can choose an era that suits and complements your body shape, enhancing all your best attributes.

One of my favourite fashion eras is the 50s, not only for the richness of its designs but also because it is the fashion era that best dressed the hour-glass shaped woman. Unlike other fashion eras, the 50s emphasized a woman’s curves in a very elegant way. The fifties were a very smart era; women were well groomed and tailored to look like their favourite Hollywood stars. Feminine dresses were a must and the “lady-like” look was generalized. There was a wide choice between full skirts, A-line and pencil skirt cuts; all of them enhancing a woman’s curves.

50s Style Wedding Dresses


The Fifties have some of the most romantic wedding dresses in fashion history. Whether they feature full skirts, wide collars or strapless cuts, 50s style dresses are very delicate, demure and elegant.


Finding a vintage wedding dress is not an easy task: There are few places where you can find vintage 50s style wedding dresses. Markets and vintage fairs are one of the most obvious places to start looking for a vintage wedding dress. If you are keen on buying your wedding dress online, ebay is one of the most obvious places for finding an original vintage wedding dress. It will take time to find what you are looking for but you might be pleasantly surprised.


Original 50s Wedding Dresses

Fifties style wedding dresses

If you are looking for original vintage 50s style wedding dresses but do not have the time to look in markets, fairs or even ebay, why not follow the celebrity’s choice? The Frock is the place Dita Von Teese, awarded as one of the 100 best dressed women in the world, mentioned as one of her favourite places for vintage shopping. Now if Dita and Vogue Magazine mentioned The Frock as THE place for vintage shopping, I think it would be my first stop if I was looking for a unique wedding dress.

The Make up to go with a 50s style wedding dress

Make up

The best make up style to compliment a 50s inspired wedding dress is a natural look; the one that reminds of a peaches and cream complexion with hardly any noticeable eye shadow.  The emphasis should be on emphasizing the upper lid with dark eyeliner

This vintage dress collection are awesome! From the most vintage type to the modern one! Actually, I'm looking for wedding dresses, not for me but for Mom. We're planning for a wedding anniversary celebration for them that's why. I think she will love it more if she'll wear the same dress she used to wear on her wedding day 25 years ago. Is it possible if I do some tailoring and changes on the dress? I mean, I need some advice to make it a modern vintage style of dress. I am just hoping you got some idea on vintage wedding dress. This one is very helpful anyway princessa.

Grace Kelly could have worn a burlap sack to her wedding and still looked stunning--thankfully she did not. Love this trip down memory lane.

Absolutely gorgeous!

Thank you so much for sharing! I especially LOVE the long gown in the garden back-lighted with a gossamere cape! So elegant and romantic!

Blessings to you and yours! EarthAngel!

Not a topic I know well!! but I really enjoyed the read and found it very interesting. Too be honest I have never heard of such things, but can certainly see the attraction. Good luck

AskAshlie3433: Thank you. I really like the style, especially for the shorter versions which I think look much better on smaller women than the traditional long wedding dresses more suitable for taller ladies.
