Vintage Bride Carly, in a Flirty 1950s Lace Wedding Dress

Dear Reader, 

Excuse my absence last week… I was away enjoying a glass or two of prosecco in the warm sunshine!  Now I’m happy to be back with pictures of this week’s darling real vintage bride, Carly…

For her Bristol wedding, Carly chose this original 1950s wedding dress – so pretty with its nipped-in waist, frothy full skirt and all-over cotton lace. Carly looked amazing in the dress, teamed with sassy red peep-toe shoes and a neat birdcage veil. And it suited her lovely personality to a T.

1950s wedding dresses are made to show off your curves, so a perfect fit is important. As soon as lovely Carly tried on this beautiful dress, it looked gorgeous on her. But as always, a few subtle and clever alterations can still make a big difference – lifting a dress from pretty to fabulous.

That’s where my secret weapon – super-talented seamstress Grace – comes in. As well as ensuring this dress perfectly fitted Carly’s lovely figure, Grace even made the pretty teardrop headpiece and veil to go with it.

Congratulations Carly, you look 1950s-fabulous! (And since my secret is out, I shall tell everyone more about Grace in another post very soon.)
