Vintage Wedding Dresses and Summer Festival Style.

Dear Reader,

Hooray! The sun is out and summer kicked off with almighty–Glastonbury–bang last weekend. Festival style is everywhere!

The 1970s–inspired festival look always work so beautifully in summer, doesn’t it. Even the smartest city girls are girls skipping through the hot London streets in flowy dresses, loose tresses and pretty sandals.

With their flowing lines and delicate trims, vintage wedding dresses always suit this free-spirited Festival styling. Today, I thought I’d pick out some pretty examples of 1970s-style brides – and some fabulous free-flowing hairstyles – to inspire any Summer brides…
