This post is thanks to Laura, who responded on facebook to mine and Elaine’s pleas for photos from your family’s real fifties weddings – thank you very much, Laura!
The pictures are Laura’s great-aunt, Frieda, who was German, marring an American GI called Robert. Unfortunately, Laura doesn’t know the exact date, but just take a look at these photos;
I’m loving the classic fifties hairstyles in these photos, and look closely at the detail on the bottom of the veil – the lace detail is gorgeous!
This wedding looks like early fifties – notice the classic high neck and long sleeved wedding gown. Check out Fancy New York’s Linda dress on www.lookdarling.com – definitely along the same lines, with a modern twist! Perhaps the designers are getting it right? What do you think?
