What we’re loving right now: a retro twist in modern weddings. From wedding dresses to cake toppers, we’re seeing a trend of ’50s and ’60s styles making their way into the wedding world, adding a hint of sophistication and a bit of fun.
Tea-length gowns, perfect pearls, Veronica Lake waves, birdcage veils, red lips and cat eyes are gorgeous for brides who want a throwback to the past. Fit-and-flare bridesmaid dresses in bold colors like these from Alfred Sung complete the sweet-yet-sassy look. For decor, think bright and cheery: pops of red, pink and yellow, your grandparents’ cake topper, striped straws, sunglasses and maybe even an old beach cruiser bike!
