April 7, 2011 - PRLog -- A vintage inspired wedding dress usually costs less than a designer one and it is also unique and stylish. Vintage is also a major trend of modern bridal fashion; especially the 1950s glamour is appearing in many designers' collections, like Justin Alexander or Paloma Blanca. But a real vintage or antique wedding dress is quite rare; it may be not easy for any bride who has set a vintage mood to get her dreamy gown. A vintage style or inspired gown may be a good selection. It’s brand-new, and will not have the problems like buttons or stains with an age-old dress. But before rushing to the wedding stores, I suggest getting a basic idea about different vintage styles and set your tone.

1920's fashion is about flapper. A flapper dress is straight, tight and sleeveless, with the dropped waistline to the hips. For brides, you can select a flapper style white dress. A cap veil pleated with Chantilly lace or a chaplet headpiece will add much more touch of 1920's feeling.

1930's is simple and slim. A natural slim silhouette became the fashion and took the place of the 1920's boyish cut. The hemline also dropped suddenly ankles and lower. A loon sleek appearance with draping fabric is crucial for brides to create 1930's feeling.

1940's glamour features pointed long sleeves combined with a slight sweetheart neckline high on the neckline. A V-shape line emphasizes the waist.

1950s were extremely modest. Compared with modern wedding dresses, this style doesn't show a lot of skin, usually featuring sleeves and not-too-low neckline. The 1950's is also extremely feminine. A very emphasized waist combined with poof-up full skirt creates a big hourglass shape. Lace is another common characteristic in this style to make extreme feminine feeling. A pair of tall thin heels wore underneath the tea length skirt shows perfect ankles. Bodice with fitted bosom, hoop skirts, tiered lace, upstanding style collars, lace boleros matching a strapless dress, flutter hem and other looks will make their way into a 1950's fashion.

1960's wedding fashion has seen lots of familiar features to us, like empire waistline and the A-line silhouette. Bride who wants a unique look of this decade can find a bubble sheath silhouette, hemline at ankles, 3/4 lace sleeves and Watteau train are unique style of that decade.

As a major trend of 2011 bridal fashion, 1950's style continues to take the way with major designers' collection. There are lots of places to shop a vintage style or inspired wedding dresses like this
