Every day is Throwback Thursday when it comes to retro weddings with vintage-inspired details. From the 1920s all the way to the 1980s (where are our '90s weddings?!), we're loving this retro wedding style. Here are some of our very favorite retro bridesmaids, 1940s elopements, birdcage veils, pillbox hats, polka dots, Frank Sinatra impersonators, and classic cars.

Planning your own retro-style wedding? Pick your era, get nostalgic, and find your retrograde inspiration below. Click on the photos to see the original wedding (there's SO much more to each of these!)…

Becca and Michael had some live performers add vintage flair to their reception:

Following lunch, we were surprised by a performance from Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin impersonators, which my mother had secretly arranged with the DJ. This was a great way to break the ice and get everyone on the dance floor. For a moment, surrounded by the crooners, with Michael's and my era-bending apparel, it felt like a scene from Las Vegas in 1963.
