9 Vintage Ideas to Take Your Bridal Look Back in Time
As the saying goes, what's old is new again. And while fashions from the '80s might never be known for their timeless appeal, the classic styles of the early 1900s and midcentury hold a vibe that's perfect for a bridal look that will be forever revered. If you want to give your bridal attire a vintage touch, try adding these elements.
1. Birdcage Veil
Trade the traditionally long veil for a birdcage style, where a small piece of netting is typically worn draped over the top or side of the face.
2. Heirloom Diamonds
Jewelry that comes with a story is always interesting and often special, so see if you can find any family pieces to keep telling the tales they hold.
3. Old Hollywood Glam
Even a new gown can evoke a style from the past. When selecting a dress, look for lines and details similar to the fashions popular in the era you're trying to mimic.
4. Elegant Earrings
For a tiny touch of vintage style, add colorful costume jewelry found in your grandmother's jewelry box or purchased from a retro fashion boutique.
