We were super excited when Rock My Vintage an online occasion wear vintage retailer based in the west midlands, got in touch with us here at BCITC. They stock a wide range of retro and 1920s inspired ball gowns and accessories and we are loving the fact that we can share some of their inspiration with you.
Rock My Vintage – Breathtaking Beaded Bridal Gowns and Occasion Dresses
Wonderful wedding on the horizon? Whether you are the blushing bride-to-be, a brilliant bridesmaid or a gorgeous guest, Rock My Vintage used years of experience in the occasion wear industry to give the low down on popular wedding trends and how to nail vintage style this RSVP season.
Name That Theme….
Since the silver screening of The Great Gatsby, there has been an incredible rise in popularity for 1920s inspired weddings and we can see why! 1920s style simple oozes opulence and romance as well as being a decade that embodies revelry and raucous behaviour. For the bride looking for a combination of finesse and fun, Gatsby’s got it going on.
Get some Gatsby glamour with an elaborate embellished dresses and amazing art deco jewellery and strut your stuff at a Stately Home shindig. Avoid looking too fancy dress, by investing in an intricately detailed number – remember you can always wear it again as the perfect cocktail number too.
Avoid the fear of being seen in the same outfit and get some serious style snaps by choosing a vintage inspired wedding guest dress for a look that will help you stand out.
For any attendee who wants a little kooky to their look, take note of the refreshing rise in popularity of retro flared prom dresses – just add pin curl quiffs to complete the look! Rockabilly and 50s prom dresses have the massive benefit of suiting ALL FIGURES (It’s a little fashion miracle) and something like this Polka Dot Prom Dress is flattering and super stylish for a Summer wedding.
The Alternative Bride
For the bride looking for an elegantly effortless style without conforming to the traditional concept of a white wedding dress then our beautiful 1920s style maxi dresses offer an truly stunning, stylish alternative.
With the increase in hippy-luxe trends, we think that this vibe will become more and more popular as the surge for outdoor ceremonies, rustic venues and romantic trips abroad continues. Many brides are choosing an classy indie alternative to the standard white wedding. Times are changing and today’s brides look for a unique dress that reflects their individual personality as well as the occasion. Our Nude Beaded Maxi Dress makes an beautiful bohemian choice for your wedding day with its stunning tulle maxi length skirt and fitted intricately embellished bodice. Pair with our striking rose gold hair comb , prominent Coral Hoop Earrings and sparkly accessories for a relaxed ethereal vibe.
Gone are the days of neon green meringues for your besties, Brides want their gaggle of girls to look gorgeous too! These days, a bride can go wild and choose anything from a maxi, midi and mini to suit even the most picky of bridesmaids! From elegant 50’s tea dresses to daring drop waist flappers and chic maxi dresses , you can pick a unique style and run with it. This 1930s Blue Beaded Maxi Dress makes a stunning choice with its fabulous fluted sleeves, shimmering sequinned floral decoration and soft flowing skirt – it is a wicked combination of elegant and sass – just right for the leading ladies!
One of our favourite gifts chosen by a Rock My Vintage bride was this gorgeous vintage crystal bracelet ( featured above) because of its delicate floral shaping and glistening crystal decoration it looked stunning with the bridesmaid dresses but the bridesmaid wears it with almost every outfit now :).
We know that wedding season can be a little overwhelming and the style stakes are high, but choosing a vintage vibe takes away so much of the stress! You are guaranteed a unique style whether you are the leading lady looking for the ultimate memories or just there to join in the celebration. If you need guidance and inspiration, Rock My Vintage has rocking a wedding nailed so get involved and RSVP in serious style!
