HOW DO YOU CARRY THIS STYLE INTO THE REST OF YOUR WEDDING LOOK?

Vintage Glamour Bride

Style wise for the dress, it’s all about the detail; the lace, the beading, the draping, the intricate pattern of a cuff, a beautiful back and of course, endless rows of perfect buttons. Most suited for the willowy bride, hunt for Jenny Packham wedding gowns, especially if you are goo goo for Gatsby styling.

WHAT ABOUT THE BEAUTY?

Beauty wise, keep it sleek and dramatic. This look is all about the eyes and the lips. Stay away from your bronzer and keep it light on the blush. To ensure that essential twist of decadence and sultry glamour go for a deep red lip.

Carry this style through to your hair with an elegant up do. Keep it sleek, with a side parting and swept to one side, or secure it softly to the nape of your neck in a stunning chingnon or low, curly bun. To fully commit to the 20s look, ask your stylist to give you a finger wave or for that 50s vixen look (as shown above, bottom right) go for an intricate barrel curl up do.

To finish off the look, adorn your head with a dazzling vintage comb, headpiece or a little net veil that will guarantee to crown you the queen of vintage style.

OUR TOP JEWELLERY PICKS TO ACCOMPANY THIS LOOK:

It has to be pearls and it has to sparkle. For necklaces, size and length will depend on your neckline. If you have a scooped back dress, you could even choose to have something cascading down your back ( very Jennifer Lawrence at the Oscars in 2014 😉 )

Opt for a statement pair of earrings, if you want to make sure you don’t distract from the dress and with this styling you can afford to go for a statement piece on the wrist.
