Vintage Fashion Finds – Weddings

   Vintage Fashion Finds

Some of my favorite ways to spend my free time are perusing antique shops and scouring  for vintage items online. I have a particular fascination with the 30’s-50’s due to the very classic nature of these pieces and their unique lines. While I would love nothing more than to buy all these magnificent items, I will do the second best thing …share!

 

     Vintage Weddings

Original French Vogue 1961 Magazine Advertisement Ad Carven Wedding Dress $9 at paper doll girls

 

50s Rhinestone Cream Velvet Trimmed Flower Netted Bridal Hat $46 at closet case VNTG

The June bride! The month of June was named after the Roman God of marriage, Juno.  Any young superstitious bride would have wanted their day to be blessed. Many superstitions or traditions are still a part of contemporary weddings.
“Something old, something new, something borrowed,  something blue.”  With weddings so deeply rooted in the past it would stand to reason to take a glimpse back at some fabulous vintage fashion wedding
finds.
