Lots of you lovely brides are thinking about wearing a vintage wedding dress, so I love this styled shoot which highlights one-of-a-kind dresses from the 1950s and 1960s. The classic and romantic appeal of the lace and frilly fabrics have won the hearts of many brides who are true to vintage fashion. Part of the appeal of these dresses lies in their ability to look perfect at an elegant soiree, or a rustic countryside affair. Discerning brides are able to choose not only a dress that has a history of love and happiness behind it, but also a dress that is so unique, they needn’t fear looking like every other bride! Thanks to Karen of Love Life Studios for the lovely photos and the gorgeous bouquets are by Karen of Huckleberry Karen Designs. All the gorgeous dresses are from Park Place Vintage in San Jose, California.
The lavender bouquet was made with purple and lavender ranunculus, blue veronica, rice flower, ming fern and purple lilac accented with a large lace bow.
The yellow bouquet was made with yellow ranunculus, white matsumoto flowers, fever few, rice flower, dusty miller and eucalyptus leaves with seed pods.
The coral cascading bouquet was made with large coral peonies, yellow and peach ranunculus, Queen Anne’s lace, white football mum, dusty miller, lamb’s ear and jasmine vines.
All so gorgeous right? Are any of you lovelies planning to wear a vintage wedding dress? I’m pretty smitten with that first short lace dress…
