Throwback Thursday: Here Comes the Bride

Bookmark and Share

Wedding season is coming to an end as we approach Autumn. So, what better time for a bridal edition of Throwback Thursday?


This photo was sent to us by Arnolda, it is of herself on her wedding day in the 1960s! Doesn't she look incredible?  This wedding dress comes across as very of its time, especially with the feather trim on the hem and neckline. It is a very unique dress. Although quite feminine, this dress has a few touches that are mostly seen in men's fashion. The fabric added below the bust line drops to the low waist, giving the illusion of a cummerbund. Arnolda is also wearing boutonni√®re, what a clever touch for dress that is on the less ornate side! 

This dress may be dated, but with some minimal alterations it could be worn at any modern wedding. Full length sleeves are especially popular with brides following the Royal Wedding. The key to the perfect wedding dress is the same as with any outfit, you must make it your own. It is clear that Arnolda did!

A huge thank you to Arnolda for sharing this beautiful vintage fashion (and life) moment with SLV! We will be back next week with another look into the fashion of the past.
