The 1960’s were a tumultuous decade. Change was the only constant. The beginning of the decade looked more like the innocence of the fifties but by 1969 pop culture, science, fashion, and politics had changed to make the face of America unrecognizable.

Beauty in the sixties took many forms. From the cool sophistication of Kim Novak, the rollicking energy and magnetism of Anne Margaret, to the sex kitten appeal of Bridget Bardot.  Recognizable trends of the sixties ran the gamut from teased bouffant hair to a Twiggy pixie haircut. Heavy black eyeliner, the mod look of oversized false eyelashes and, eyeshadow in at least two colors – blues and greens being dominant, and frosted pink lips were signs of the times.

During this decade of diversity, wedding dresses were available from floor length to hemlines that touched the fingertips. Crinolines were still in the mix used in a more early sixties look on a mid-calf length full skirt, but later in the decade A-line wedding minis were seen. Floor length romantic looks were often worn, many had the sixties empire waistline silhouette.

Pillbox hats influenced by Jackie Kennedy were designed with attached netting for adorable bouffant length veils. Daisies were all the rage and were used in bridal spray bouquets and also made an appearance as design elements in lace.

The groom may have worn a swanky black tuxedo like 007, but in the ’60’s spirit of non-conformity tuxes were also available in colors and textures. Elvis Presley wore a black brocade paisley tux in his 1967 wedding, but he could have chosen one in almost any color and added a ruffled shirt detailed in a contrasting trim. Lapels were also seen trimmed in contrast or made from satin or velvet.

As dramatic changes went on in the sixties, the drama played out on the radio. Musical choices for a 1960’s themed wedding can span from the classic smooth and swingin’ sounds of the Rat Pack and Frank Sinatra, to the twist again fun of Chubby Checker and Mo-Town and R&B sounds – even the Doo-Wop song stylists. The “Summer of Love” brought us the Beach Boys. The British invasion brought us the Beatles, and The Rolling Stones. Folk music may give you a background for a mod or Bohemian style event. The possibilities for 1960s Vintage Wedding Styles, fashion and music are inspiring. Plan your 1960s themed wedding, begin with Vintage Wedding Invitations.
