20 Bridesmaid Dresses Inspired by the Fabulous Fifties
Today’s post is definitely my favourite so far in this series of 1950s themed Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons! Because, after looking at the most perfect bridal hair accessories and delicious wedding cakes for a mid-century inspired wedding, today I’m turning our attention to the all important bridesmaids…..
You want your girls to look and feel just as fabulous as you will on the day, and the fun, flirty feel (and super flattering fit) of 1950s inspired dresses means this is a look that they will love. Think short and tea length dresses, cinched in waists, full skirts and bateau or bardot necklines. Let the fabric you choose convey the style of your wedding…..

Such as this Woodland delight had a high tea reception and this sweet intimate celebration. And for even more ideas, take a peek at this charming 1950s inspired shoot in lavender!
Don’t forget if the fifties just aren’t your style, do take a peek back at the last series. It was packed full of Art Deco styling that would have made Mr Gatsby himself jealous!
