1930s Old Hollywood Wedding Style. As the country suffered through the Great Depression, Hollywood began producing the first of the uplifting full color musical pictures designed to allow the American public to escape the reality of the everyday. Swing Music gained in popularity and champagne flowed freely again as of the repeal of prohibition in 1933.

Hollywood starlets wore their hair slightly longer than the 1920’s. Finger-waves and pin curls created a soft, feminine look. Faces were pale ivory, with fine tapered eyebrows. Lips were more naturally shaped but dramatically colored with deep reds, maroons, browns and raspberry tones. Nails were done in vibrant reds with a stylish “moon manicure”.

The bridal gowns of this era were cut on the bias out of satin or silk creating a very body conscious silhouette. The formal bridal gown was floor length, and had an elaborate, long train. Chantilly lace trimmed the edges of the floor length veils that were anchored to the head with a juliet cap. Long opera length gloves completed the look of a sleeveless or butterfly sleeved bodice.

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers graced the silver screen inspiring us in their formal attire. In “Top Hat” Fred gave us an example of a dashing groom in black tux with cutaway coat, dancing cheek to cheek with his gorgeous 1935 bride.

Motion picture musicals made the era a magical time, and radio was also there to lift our spirits. Play the theme songs of the 1930’s at your event and create a magical ambiance with Big Band tunes by Glen Miller – “Moonlight Serenade”, Duke Ellington- “Mood Indigo”, Benny Goodman- “Sing, Sing, Sing”, and Tommy Dorsey – “Woodchopper’s Ball”.  For your First Dance be sure to procure the services of a Vintage Dance Teacher to choreograph your swingin’ send off into married life.
