September 30, 2009

My wedding fascination started not with dreams of tiaras and glass slippers, but with a well-loved photo album filled with lime green bridesmaid dresses and thick sideburns. My parents were married at the height of disco glam, and my mother wore a hooded jersey gown lined with maribou feathers (very Halston). Now I find myself brushing up against racks of softly whispering tulle, analyzing the silhouettes of perfectly coiffed wedding toppers, and poring over photo albums of decades I've never known.

As such, I can't help but take that old wedding adage "something old, something new" into consideration for my oft-daydreamed wedding. The only question is which kind of vintage bride would I be: a dreamy 1920s flapper, coy and classic 1950s gal, or a beehived Rat Pack tagalong of Vegas in the 1960s? Today's Etsy Finds are inspired by the stylish decades that set the standard for bridal glamor.

If you're looking for vintage-infused nuptial eye candy, be sure to check out Once Wed's Real Weddings section. For more wedded bliss, check out Etsy's Wedding Attire style guide and the always inspirational Handmade Weddings series.

The Jazz Age

A 1920s inspired wedding wouldn't be complete without the requisite flapper details: intricate beading, antique lace, feathers, filigree, Art Deco details, jazz and knock-kneed Charleston frolicking. Check out Ed and Ginny's breathtaking wedding album on Once Wed for more twenties exaltation.

Retro Classic

The 1950s set the gold standard for the wedding silhouette: full circle skirts, crinolines, costume jewelry and an emphasis on demure glamor. If you're a traditional gal at heart, this is your decade: just put "Sleep Walk" on the hifi and sway the night away. Elizabeth Taylor's grandiose 1950 wedding to Conrad "Nicky" Hilton should help in the inspiration department.

A Swinging Time

If you have modern sensibilities with retro inclinations, this is the decade for you. A 1960s wedding is all about the tiny Las Vegas chapel, beehives, heavy eyeliner, nude lips, lucite jewelry, long sleeved gowns, and fitted sheaths. Break out the bubbly, turn up the Sinatra and peruse photos from the 1967 union of Elvis Presley and Priscilla Beaulieu to get in the mood.
