The 1920’s is the decade when
fashion became more exciting and
attractive. Women deserted the
former constricting and modest
clothing of former years and
developed a style of their own. This
explains why our modern era is
inspired so much by this time period.
Because the 1920’s were such a
prosperous era and social customs
became more relaxed, clothing styles
reached a whole new revolution, with
fashion styles such as the flapper

Your Retro Wedding - Shaken not Stirred
How can you get the look?
Makeup in the 1950′s was sophisticated and glamorous, simple and elegant. Strong eyebrows, neutral lids, and dark liner.
As far as lipstick is concerned, you only have one choice: red. However, select a shade that compliments your skin tone so
that you don’t wind up looking washed out. As always, if you use a makeup professional you have a much better chance of
achieving the Audrey/Marilyn/Grace Kelly style.
With the return of Mad Men to prime time, the hottest show on TV has inspired a 50′s revolution in fashion and decor which

pick up the latest issue of Florida Bride for the latest trends and vintage styles.

coiff would be a pompadour, rolled bangs or soft curls. Be
aware that these styles take a great deal of time and really
great products, allow for this when booking your hair
appointment before the wedding.
Gowns were magnificent creations of lace and tulle. Full
skirts with tiny waists, big veils, loads of detail and tea
length gowns were the style. Choose a gown that
accentuates the best of both you and the style of the
decade. If you opt for a strapless gown, consider a bolero
jacket or a shrug, each one were equally popular in the
Tuxedos have not changed drastically since the 1950′s but
the difference is in the details. The ties were narrower, the
shirts always pleated, the cummerbund was white or black
and the lapels were slimmer. Straight leg pants, patent
leather shoes and a spring in your step with complete the
look. White dinner jackets weralso very popular but, for
the most formal occasion – tails were the norm.
