1950s Vintage Wedding Style is influenced by many things. The 1950’s were post-war boom time. The nation was prosperous and marriage rates were high. It was an age of vast suburban housing tracts, occupied by the model American family. Televisions had invaded each household, and musical entertainment was dominated by the hi-fi playing rock and roll music. A preoccupation with all things atomic and space age reflected the optimism of the period.

Glamorous women of the fifties included Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor who inspired the makeup styles of the fifties. Foundations began with pan-cake powder in matte porcelain. The popular color for lips was ruby red in a matt texture, no gloss. Rouge in a natural rose color was placed in the apple of the cheek and blended for a subtle look. Liquid eye liner on the top lash line only, with faux lashes winged out on the ends. Brows were natural in fullness and shaped with a high arch. Hairstyles called for short hair set in curls, many styles very short (think Shirley McLaine) with pedal like pieces  around the face or a page-boy with a glamorous bang pushed off the face in a high wave.

Fifties fashion was inspired by French designs, especially Dior. The availability of yardage unattainable in wartime now allowed for decadent full circle skirts. A typical wedding gown of the forties was exemplified by Elizabeth Taylor’s lace confection in 1950 and first lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s dress in 1953. A fifties inspired bride of today may choose to emulate a starlet of the era wearing some of the stunning Hollywood fashions of the period. Favorite gowns from Tinseltown in the fifties include Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina and again in Funny Face in a dress similar to this one.

Depending upon the formality of the wedding and time of day, the 1950’s groom would wear a cutaway coat, pinstriped pants and ascot or a for less formality, a dinner jacket, often in cream with a black (narrow) bow tie. Daring fellows could be seen sporting classic white bucks on their feet.

The birth of rock and roll of the 1950’s gave a new energy to the dance scene. Great tunes to imbibe your event with fifties vibe include: “All Shook Up”, “Earth Angel”, “Rock Around The Clock”, and just for the romance of it, Nat King Cole‘s “Unforgettable”. The Jitterbug was still alive and well, so with some Bill Haley & The Comets on the hi-fi or a rockabilly band doing a cover, your reception could turn into a real sock hop!

It is the perfect invite for the nostalgic bride and groom who want their special day to be vintage, traditional and memorable. Ideal for a 1940s and 1950s wedding theme. This design was inspired by movies of the 1940’s as well as my own parents’ wedding back in 1948. These are my Mothers pearls and cake topper saved from the march of time by their devoted daughter and turned into art. The images ring true to the era because they are from a real wedding held in the wartime days of the 1940’s. Be sure to see our Styles Page for fashion, traditions and music ideas for a 1940s Theme Wedding and a glimpse of my parents in their wedding day portrait.
