The Washington Post reports on vintage clothes for weddings
The generation that grew up shopping for vintage clothes is getting married and looking for retro wedding dresses. So the good news is if you have your mom’s Priscilla of Boston silk gown boxed up somewhere.
“There is a market for vintage wedding dresses,” says Brides magazine fashion director. “Mixing old with new is big, it could be a dress or veil, or just vintage shoes or cocktail hat.”
1950s designs with tight waist and full skirt, and 1930s Hollywood- inspired charmeuse gowns. The hit TV series Mad Men has created a yen for 1960s formal gowns.
At Antiquedress.com, owner Deborah Burke specializes in high-end gowns, including ones on consignment. She splits the selling price of the gown with the consigner. Burke’s caution to would-be sellers: Condition is everything.
Millesgården museum Lidingö is an incredible wedding venue in Stockholm, an artist’s home, the centrepiece of the museum that is Millesgården.
Millesgården Stockholm’s most spectacular museum built on terraces with a majestic view over the city of Stockholm is on the waters edge. Milles is a perfect vinterbröllop and summer location, the gallery is a perfect place for wedding portraits.
With all the new technology in the world of weddings, from Twitter to Facebook engagement announcements, the biggest trend is a to the past: ’50s-inspired glamour. In my earlier posts I had mentioned this Retro weddings. So couples getting married are looking to mix this vintage wedding trend with their own personality.
‘Homespun Chic’ is the word “Many of the year’s top wedding trends reflect an obsession with the sophistication of the40s, 50s and ’60s photographs from my retro wedding wedding
Also look for quirky surprises, inspired by couple’s unique personality, or of-the-moment pop-culture crazes.
1 The 1980s are back in a huge way, weddings are not immune. 1980s prom music will be huge at fashion-forward receptions and parties
2 Its all Avatar, the 3-D craze will also be hitting the wedding scene with 3-D save-the-dates, menus and more. Save the date crossword puzzle-styles video announcements, and special performances
3 Inspired by the hit show, Glee, couples are taking their first dance to a whole new level by opting for a “mash-up” (or medley) of songs instead of a single one
4 High-top trainers peeking out from under his tuxedo. A glimpse of a pink petticoat under the hemline of her dress! bright-green socks for the groom and bright-green shoes for the bride! Couples are really showing color and their individuality, underneath it all.
5 Forget the sparklers, confetti canons and hot air balloon sendoffs will be all the rage.
6 Here comes the bride, look for interesting entrances from the bridal party after this years youtube hit video.
Stockholm weddings last year had some absolutely amazing weddings for me having worked in some of the most fantastic wedding venues Grand Hotel Stockholm, Nordic Blue, even in my favourite furniture store R.O.O.M are a few that come immediately sping to mind.
