SMH - Vintage Hollywood tops bridal trends

According to today's article in the Sydney Morning Herald, Vintage Hollywood is the latest trend in bridal fashion. I thought I was being fairly unique.... :-(
Weather presenter Rose Kelly is wearing a 30's inspired gown (not sure who it's by, I got confused as to whether it's a Jenny Packham or Akira gown). They also make suggestions for jewellery, hair and make-up to get the old Hollywood look.

So Vintage Patterns

If you're handy with a needle and thread or employ a dressmaker, here's a website selling authentic patterns dating right back through the 20th century. The 40s, 50s and 60s gowns are really spectacular and some of them are very sexy. An era where women really dressed up!

Also, some great inspiration for bridesmaids...

Art Deco "Save the Date"

Cool Art Deco Save the Date. It comes across like the wedding is going to be a glamorous black tie affair.

Claire Pettibone

As you might have guessed by all these gowns, I haven't settled on a gown yet (despite what I said in an earlier post). I still love that gown but it may not be the right style for me. I will never know because I can't get my hands on a sample to try. Anyway, in my never-ending search I came across yet another fantastic US designer, Claire Pettibone. Her gowns are just so scrumptious. These two (Forever and Mystere) are from her Rock N Roll Bride 2009 collection.
