The gorgeous vintage style dresses were very feminine with full skirts, further accentuated by large underskirts. There was an emphasis on the waist and rounded bodice. A 1950s bride was modest yet stylish and ankle length dresses were in fashion as were covered shoulders. Matched with slim heels to really show off a woman’s grace and beauty, these wedding dresses were showstoppers.

The 1950s Bombshell

An Iconic bride of the time was Grace Kelly, she was graceful and glamorous and every one wanted to look like her. So to be a bombshell, the dress would have clean lines and head turning skirts without showing off too much flesh.

This is such a glamorous look which will make any bride look a million dollars. Think close fitting in the bodice and waist with a full skirt and lots of silk. The look to copy was both stylish and sleek with a defined waist and not too many embellishments, It wasn’t fussy at all.

Lace boleros over strapless dresses created the bombshell look, it was fun, flirty and glamorous all at the same time. The illusion of showing some shoulder and back without baring too much was all the rage.

Three quarter length or long sleeves were very on trend in the 1950s and gorgeous scooped necklines complimented the look. Another icon was Audrey Hepburn, her Funny Face film short wedding dress was a defining dress. A very defined waist, full skirt and a shoulder skimming high neckline set this dress as a classic that still gets emulated to this day.
