1 1950s Lace Vintage Wedding Dress
A high neckline, long sleeves, and a full skirt: this is undoubtedly a vintage wedding dress from the 1950s.

How sweet would this flirty little dress look with a birdcage veil and red wedding shoes...love! You can find this and many other retro clothes over at Dear Golden vintage etsy.com shop.

3 1970s Hippie Vintage Wedding Dress

5 Two-Tiered Vintage Wedding Dress...
I love finding vintage wedding dress styles from the '60s and '70s that have inspired modern wedding dresses of today. Everything old is new again! What’s great about actually buying the real vintage dress is that you aren't paying for the modern price! My friend Katie over at Vintage Vinyl Journals shared this dress from ModCloth with me that cost only $298. Sadly it’s no longer available, but I just loved the look of it so much that I couldn't go without showing it to you. Perhaps you can find a similar one online.
6 1950s Satin Vintage Wedding Dress
How did they fit into these dresses? Women were so tiny in the '50s, every detail I see mentions that vintage sizes are comparable to extra small sizes we have today! Though if you really love this gorgeous, silk satin gown, I’m sure the waist could be altered to fit what our frames are today. There’s just something about long sleeves and a high neck on a silk dress that feels sexy without trying too hard. I love the way this dress shows off her curves, I could see Joan from Mad Men wearing a gown like this! You can find this dress and many others over on etsy.com.
7 1950s Tulle Vintage Wedding Dress
This may have been a prom dress in the 1950s, but who said it couldn't be worn as a vintage wedding dress today? I love the tulle skirt and the details on the bodice, it reminds me of a dress seen on the movie Grease! I've always wanted to dress up in a fun, vintage dress like this one...are you daring or retro enough to wear this on your big day? Head on over to etsy.com to purchase this dress and find many others like it!
