Bridal Style: Vintage Glam
Something old, something new…A vintage glam look is ideal for brides who have a love for old Hollywood style with a modern touch! Keep reading for tips on incorporating this chic style in to your wedding day ensemble.
Your wedding dress is the foundation for your wedding style and bridal look. Satin or lace sheath style dresses are perfect for achieving vintage style.
Style tip: Add a low cut illusion back and a jeweled belt for some modern flair.
Whether you plan to wear your hair up or down for your big day, for a romantic look, start with big loose finger waves.
If you want to wear your hair down, pin the front section to the side with a jeweled clip. For an updo, keep the big waves and then have those curls pinned up in to a low side swept bun. Again, a glamorous clip will complete the look.
Style tip: If your dress allows for a little more accessorizing, borrow some inspiration from the 1920s. Add a jeweled satin headband across your forehead for a Gatsby-inspired look.
Old Hollywood makeup is defined by bold eyeliner, made popular by Audrey Hepburn, and bright red lipstick, Marilyn Monroe’s signature color.
For your eyes, a thick cat eye is key. It’ll make your eyes absolutely pop! You can go with a natural shadow that has some shimmer, or a smoky eye to complete this look.
As for the lips, nothing says vintage glam like red lipstick! For a softer look, stick with pink.
This bridal style is for girls who love pearls! A pearl necklace, whether worn layered, long, or short, is the number one accessory to complete this look. Pair your necklace with pearl earrings or add some sparkle with chandelier style diamond earrings.
Last but not least is the bouquet. Go for flowers in soft monochromatic hues such as ivory, champagne, peach, mint or lilac. If you want your bouquet to pop, classic red roses will complement your lips nicely!
Style Tip: Infuse some glamour in an unexpected way with pearls, feathers, or sparkly accents in your bouquet!
