The whole idea incorporating vintage into your wedding day look is creating that fashion stamp of yesteryear or simply adding a few touches that make you look and feel pretty. Vintage today is enjoying a big time revival. Particularly hot are contemporary gowns and dresses with a twist of something 20th century. This could be a nipped in waist a la Audrey Hepburn, a beaded chemise from the jazz age or even a turn of the century high-collared blouse. It doesn't have to be an actual vintage piece either; it can be a repro (reproduction) piece. These images here certainly inspired me before and after I created them. They might just be a starting point for you . . . Since there are no rules here, only guidelines, go ahead and combine eras if you like. Blending your Gatsby picture hat with a seventies prairie gown you a certain distinctiveness. Go with whatever mix you want with the confidence your choices are many . . . . .
