The Style Me Vintage books have already worked their vintage magic on make-up, hair, clothes and tea parties. Now they focus their vintage magic on your special day with Style Me Vintage Weddings by Annabel Beeforth.
The gathered detail at the front, finished with a subtle bow, gives a flattering bell-shape to the skirt. The citrus shades of the floral pattern makes this an ideal summer daytime frock with an understated vintage feel. Perfect Betty Draper chic for weddings & picnics in the country.
The dress is £50 from Dorothy Perkins but is selling fast so snap one up while you still can.
If your planning a vintage twist with your big day, you might want to get your name down for a copy of the forthcoming Vintage Weddings book by Marnie Fogg, which is published by Carlton Books.
According to the pre-release write-up, it's a 'visual journey through 100 years of wedding styles and dresses', looking at key periods, styles and designers, as well as significant ceremonies and cultural influences in wedding fashions. Organised chronologically, the book shows how to recognise the silhouette that will best suit your body shape, how to pick the right fabrics and how to source appropriate accessories, from gloves and shoes to flowers, veils, jewellery and table decorations.
Designed for both the collector and the future bride looking for inspiration, the book is out on 12th May, but available for pre-order now, discounted at Amazon to £16.25.
