The more I get to see these vintage photo submissions, the more I realize how timeless long, lace sleeves are. Every decade has its fair share and this 1950s selection is no different. A full skirt, luscious sleeves, classic veil… you can't go wrong. They are all pretty solemn in these photos, though. The eternal mystery of vintage photos: we never know what they were thinking!
Here is what Jessica had to say about longing to to wear that amazing dress:
My Grandmother on my father's side was going to give me her dress for my wedding, but unfortunately she's six inches shorter and was about 30 lbs. smaller when she got married. So I probably would have fit in her dress when I was 12. Oh well, it was still gorgeous to see and think about.
Sleeve close-up alert! Check out the crown headpiece too.
I'm loving the banana-curled, cap-sleeved bridesmaid on the left. What a cutie.
Ah, there we go. They pulled out some charming smiles for this one. (Must be the food!)
