Retro Wedding Gowns


Sorry that I do not know who to give credit for this graphic


                                                   In preparation for my annual
                                             WEDDING BLOG PARTY

                                                            on June 10th
  
I'm sharing one of my favorite wedding graphics
for Pink Saturday

I'm also sharing vintage/retro wedding gown photos.....


Styles of the 1950's - early 1970's

Birdcage Veil with Rhinestones

Vintage Crocheted Gloves



Grace Kelly weds Prince Rainier of Monoco, 1956

The taffeta and Val lace confection was a wedding gift from MGM Studios, designed by Helen Rose. Imagine this: 25 yards of silk taffeta, 100 yards of silk net, and vintage Belgian rose point lace. Her headpiece was classic : a bandeau cap covered in tiny seed pearls under an intricate lace mantilla.





                                      Many similarities of Princess Grace's gown to that of
                                        Catherine Middleton, bride of Prince William, 2011


A-Line/Princess Strapless Tea-length organza wedding dress (BST0033)
Retails @ $119.98



Vintage Style White Sleeveless Satin Organza Wedding Dress
Retails @ $105.98


 Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy weds Sen. John F. Kennedy, 1953

Gown designed by Ann Lowe, a very talented African-American dressmaker.  There were 50 yards of silk taffeta, with a very full circular skirt tucked and pleated (Lowe's specialty). On Jackie's head was her grandmother's rose point lace veil hanging from a circular lace cap festooned with orange blossoms. She pulled her look together with short, white kid gloves.

                                              


1950's Tea Length Gown



Justin Alexander, Style 8465
Retails @ $1,000.00





House of Dior Wedding Dress @ 1964


@ 1950's Classic Designer Tea Length Gown

Typical 1960's mod wedding attire
All about the mini skirts, pantyhose, buckled shoes, flower power

How fun - your delightful pictures are gorgeous and I bet they're full of sweet family memories for so many of us. I can't wait to see the rest. I'm hoping you'll have one similar to my grandmother's dress, which I remember - a bit of a flapper dress. Thanks for a fun Pink Saturday.

JudyBug said...

I so love looking at lovely gowns. As an aging Baby Boomer, I miss the days of ladies "dressing". My mother always wore heels, a hat, gloves...truly a "lady". I wear flip flops and dream of other days. ;-)

You shared the most elegant gowns ever today! I so enjoyed browsing through them. Some even have some unbelievable prices. How helpful for the brides to be with choices yet to make.

I love the 1960s formal floor length gowns best. Weren't they exquisite?

Beautiful share sweetie. Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Victoria said...

Oh I love those tea length dresses! Grace Kelly was such a stunning bride:)

Annesphamily said...

What a beautiful array of wedding gowns! My daughter Noelle is at a bridal shower today. She had to wear a hat. Her friend is marrying a medical school graduate and they were at the Kentucky Derby so...
Noelle is in the wedding. I will get those pictures when the wedding is over! Fun times!
You are a lucky lady winning at Rebecca's place. Woot Hoot! Anne

Judy Keefe said...

Wow! Loved all the gowns and the hiistory. Princess Grace sure was a beauty. Sad..how it all ended.
Thank you for sharing.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Stephanie,
What an incredible post. I love it and just about every pic has something that is my favorite. My very favorites are Grace and Kate's dress as it reminds me of my own with lots of lace.
Your party will be fantastic and I am looking forward to it again this year.

Hope you are having a nice weekend. We are bracing for storms tonight and Miss B is a mess.
Under a tornado warning right now.
Getting ready to turn off the puter and wait it out.
Hope you are not having the same thing tonight, if so, be careful.
Have a great week ahead.

Love,
Celestina Marie

Tammy@Beatrice Banks said...

This was a gorgeous post! I love looking at wedding gowns. Thanks for sharing!

Unknown said...

Oh I so loved your post! I had forgotten how beautiful Grace Kelly was. I adored Jacqueline Kennedy's wedding gown. That was so gorgeous. The tea length one's remind me of my mother's wedding dress and I had wished I'd been small enough to wear her's but alas my mother is 4'11" and I'm 5'6". I adore dresses, especially wedding dresses.

Hugs, LisaKay

Can you buy buy Adderall online?
Despite the fact that Adderall is viewed as a physician recommended tranquilize and most patients purchase Adderall on the web or purchase Adderall 30mg from an online drug store, a few patients will in general get dependent on the medication. For instance, if a patient takes the medication without having the side effects of sicknesses like absence of snoozing or nodding off during the daytime, they may get dependent on it gradually and steadily with every admission. In this way, hints of the medication can be found in the patient’s pee for around 72-96 hours after the last utilization. The following can likewise be found in the patient’s blood for as long as 46 hours, and in the patient’s hair for as long as 3 months. In any case, the nearness of the medication in the patient’s framework is reliant on an assortment of components.READ MORE about uses of Adderall,
