Last week’s Snippets, Whispers & Ribbons wrapped up our look at all things Deco, so this week we are moving on to the 1950s (as voted for by the followers of CVB on Facebook) Which means for the next few weeks, every Friday, I’ll be looking at a key part of styling your day – from the stationery, to the bouquet as well as bridal, bridesmaids and grooms attire; sharing the very best ways to re-create the mid-century looks we love so much for your modern vintage wedding. And today we’re starting with the most perfect bridal hair accessories…….

The 1950s was a time of recovery and growing prosperity, which in turn meant, after the austerity of the 1940s, a return to glamour! Fashion and hair styles became less formal and both were heavily influenced by the growing number of Film and TV celebrities, which at this time included some of our greatest icons – Grace Kelly, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe. Christian Dior introduced his “New Look” silhouette, with its full sweeping skirts and fitted waists. Whilst crooners such as Frank Sinatra & Dean Martin filled the airwaves and walked the silver screen…. until they were rudely interrupted by Rock’n’Roll and Elvis!

For brides of the era, although the birdcage veils of the 1940s remained in fashion, many looking for a little more luxury, opted for beautiful long juliet cap veils. But what makes the perfect hair accessory for a modern 1950s loving bride? Well, you can follow in Audrey’s footsteps with a sweet flower crown, or for a more formal look channel Princess Grace with an elegant juliet cap veil; or go fun and flirty with a blusher or birdcage veil, which are the perfect partner to a fabulous tea length wedding dress; or for some real luxury a regal tiara! Whatever style you’re looking for, I am sure you will find the perfect finishing touch for your big day amongst these 20 beauties…..
