The 1950s can be remembered as the birth of rock ‘n roll or the immersion of Doris Day. If you’re considering a classy 1950s wedding, rather than just a vintage wedding, you’ll probably want something closer to Doris Day’s dress, rather than Bettie page. Doris Day is not the only bride is remembered as modest from the 1950s. Grace Kelly married her prince in 1956. The Father of the Bride premiered Elizabeth Taylor as the beautiful, pure and innocent bride of the 1950s. What they wore, is how we remember the 1950s wedding.

When choosing a wedding dress for 1950s modest wedding, there are certain characteristics which are unique to that era. During the 1940s, the war had designers conserving cloth, therefore weddings were more conservative. This is why you see many 1940s wedding where the brides wear suits. The 1950s were a new beginning, and designers and brides were showing the cloth conservation had ended. Wedding dresses were once again, adorned with Chantilly, and large swing and full skirts. Waists and bodices were form fitted, sometimes with large sashes and bows which tied in the back. Necklines were rounded and sleeves were capped with lace overlays over a pointed bosom. Brides often chose the Sabrina neckline, which was modeled after the character Sabrina from the movie, starring Audrey Hepburn. Adorned skullcap hats were worn with large veils as well as small hats, which fit almost like the crown top of the head. The entire effect was feminine with a decidedly hourglass figure.

During the 1950s, bridesmaids wore satin dresses with capped sleeves and portrait necklines. Underneath the swing skirts, they wore large crinolines. Typically, bridesmaids had little or no adornment on their dresses, so as not to draw attention away from the bride. Again the emphasis was a pointed bosom and tight formfitting bodice. These dress styles are typically very easy to make and very cheap.

The bride typically chose a shoe with a pointed toe and a small pointed heel. The cloth was generally satin and was embroidered or had sequins and pearls. Bridesmaids wore a rounded toe with a very small heel, also in satin cloth (easily dye-able).

Rent some old movies and sit back and plan your dress styles. Movies such as Sabrina, Father of the Bride depict classic weddings styles. Indeed, Elizabeth Taylor’s dress in Father of the Bride became one of the most popular styles during that era.

Weddings are my life and joy and I spend all of my time researching and planning weddings. I love to find beautiful cheap bridesmaid dresses and another favorite of mine is wedding shoes. Stop by and read any of my blogs for some great information. I saved ,000 on my wedding, you can too!

Weddings are extremely special days. However, they also involve a lot of time and effort on many people’s parts. Whilst the bride and groom can expect numerous presents from those they have invited, it is also a necessity that the bride and groom buy presents too. These presents reflect many things from simple thanks for love and support to more tangible thank yous for carrying out specific tasks.

But with so many people being of help at one time or another where do you draw the line, and more importantly, who exactly should you be buying wedding presents for?

The first thing to remember is that many people will have put in a lot of effort to help you make the day what it is, and really, anyone who has helped you more than just being a supportive friend should be thanked with some kind of personalised wedding gifts. From the best man and ushers through to the bridal party, the presents don’t simply show your thanks for their help during this time, but also they simply show that you are thankful for their presence in your life.

Wedding gifts should also be bought for the parents and grandparents of the bride and groom, and occasionally even for those who provide readings and/or entertainment for the couple at any point during the day.

Whether you choose to present these wedding gifts during the reception or wait to hand them out individually is completely up to you, and this will change depending on whether you want to make a big show of your thanks, or simply wish to make these gifts a more earnest offering.

Either way, whilst you will be getting presents yourself, buying personalised wedding gifts for those important people will be a great way to show your thanks and simply let them know that you value everything they do for you in general.Whether you choose to present these wedding gifts during the reception or wait to hand them out individually is completely up to you, and this will change depending on whether you want to make a big show of your thanks, or simply wish to make these gifts a more earnest offering.
