Chic Vintage Catchup

October 14, 2011

Chic Vintage Brides may have been quiet on the post front for a few days but I promise I haven’t been idle – as well as being  engrossed in an exciting makeover for CVB, I have also been avidly reading and catching up with some of my favourite Wedding blogs and I am quite frankly chuffed and excited to see that posts, on some of the very best wedding blogs out there, have included the same subjects as recent posts on CVB! (not that for one second I think these professional bloggers were inspired by CVB, more that its reassuring to see that my posts are on the right tracks!)

I loved, loved, loved all the gorgeous dresses with a dash of colour I had in my post Utterly Gorgeous Gowns for the Unconventional Bride and its great to see that there are even more, like these stunners……

From Reem Acra, Elizabeth Dye and BHLDN, found on Green Wedding Shoes in their Wedding Dresses with a touch of Colour.

GWS - Pink Vintage Wedding

Green Wedding Shoes also had this rather gorgeous Pink Vintage Wedding Dress shoot featuring a dress from Etsy Store My Favourite Vintage.

After seeing the dress in this shoot I had to take a sneak peek at what other gorgeous gowns they had on offer and I wasn’t disappointed – I found this 1950s beauties!

(oh and if you’re put off by yellow, just wait until you see the real life wedding coming up)

I love the style of this gorgeous bride on Ruffled……

Her red hair and lipstick, her vintage brooch bouquet (something else since writing a post on I have spotted on a number of other blogs), the feathers used to decorate the venue and most of all her blush pink gown!

Now, who thinks you can’t look good in yellow?……

I came across this gorgeous real life wedding (yes, thats right, it’s not a style shoot!) on Wedding Chicks.

Doesn’t the bride just look delicious!

This Real Life Wedding on Oh Lovely Day was actually a little before my post but I had to feature it – I LOVE the beautiful pink gown, the texture is so rich and it makes me think of Spring blossom!

And since my Love Birds post on oh so sweet and whimsical Bird Cake Toppers I have come across a number of real life weddings featuring cute birds a top a wedding cake – I love the teal, tan and brown colour scheme of the birds and bunting topping this gorgeous Juniper ,Canada wedding on Style Me Pretty……

There was a definite bird theme to this stunning handmade and heartfelt mountain wedding on Ruffled……

And I love the way Bride and Groom Alana and Rich have incorporated their fab red and grey colour scheme in the cake toppers of their slightly rock’n’roll inspired Ontario wedding also on Ruffled……

Last but not least, since my Heirlooms of the Future post featuring the incredible work of the very talented Noaki on Etsy I have been finding posts featuring vintage brooch bouquets EVERYWHERE!

A slightly more modern bouquet, in a bright azure blue, for the bride of this Roman Wedding on The Wedding Chicks.

A bright and beautiful brooch bouquet for a bright and beautiful Massachusetts Wedding on Style Me Pretty.

This Romantic Elegance Wedding Ideas post also on Wedding Chicks, as well as featuring the most divinly rich mix of silver and lavender, also shows off a lovely silver brooch bouquet from Baubles & Brides.

But long before all of these, Green Wedding Shoes noticed the emerging trend and did this fab post on the brooch bouquets.

If Brooch Bouquets aren’t your cup of tea though, take a look at Bride.ca to get inspiration for some other non floral bouquets – I love this candy bouquet….

but I would never have had the willpower to resist a nibble during the ceremony :-)
