Vintage Style: 1950s Inspired Bridesmaid Dresses

Apologies for the long absence.  It seems like life went into hyper-drive in December and still hasn’t slowed down.  For instance, my wonderful big sister is getting married this month so it’s been a whirlwind of wedding planning and bridesmaid duties recently.  However planning weddings is one of my dream jobs and when they involve vintage touches so much the better. 

My sister chose a stunning vintage ivory brocade dress from the 1950s for her wedding dress.  With that in mind I had been scouring the internet for 50s style dresses that would be bridesmaid appropriate.  Thought I’d share some of the options and websites that stood out.

This is a really cool site to check out if you haven’t already.  In addition to having sizes up to 36W they allow you to customize various elements of most of their dresses.  So if you prefer a cap sleeve or a shorter hem you can get that.  Perfect for a wedding with a diverse group of bridesmaids.
