Real weddings Vintage

Do you love all things vintage? Would you say your personal style is influenced by the roaring 20s, 1930s Hollywood or swinging sixties? Perhaps you and your partner like to wear vintage clothes or attracted to music from a particular era? If this is the case you should definitely consider having a vintage wedding, and immersing yourself in this vintage wedding section. Even if you don’t opt for a vintage wedding dress, you might like the idea of having a vintage style bridal dress, venue and reception. There are so many beautiful vintage style venues in the UK that would be befitting of a gorgeous vintage wedding. Here at Style & the Bride, we are literally obsessed with Hollywood stars from the past, including Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, and Ava Gardner, so it makes sense to have a real weddings section dedicated to all things vintage. Although vintage weddings obviously take their inspiration from the past, vintage weddings have never been so popular and they quite frankly never go out of fashion. Many bridal designers and wedding planners today are influenced by styles from the past, so will you find plenty of inspiration out there. Again, if you are interested in having your vintage wedding featured; do send a brief description of around 100 words to marina@styleandthebride.co.uk alongside 15-20 low-res jpegs of images from your big day. As well as taking inspiration from Style & the Bride’s vintage weddings section, we suggest you look at weddings from the past such as Grace Kelly’s iconic wedding. Her dress inspired millions of women and continues to do so today. The Duchess of Cambridge’s Alexander McQueen bridal gown was definitely a work of art but it was undoubtedly reminiscent of Grace Kelly’s stunningly beautiful lace bridal gown.
