Our selection of vintage-inspired wedding dresses from five different brands:

Daisy Dapper - Romantic vintage style wedding dress with lace in a classic 1950s look

The beautiful wedding dress from Daisy Dapper is a fantastic, hand-sewn dress with a full overlay in romantic floral lace. The dress is a classic, waist-cut swing dress with a strapless sweetheart neckline, which is instead held up by the beautiful lace that covers your décolleté, but still puts a discreet focus on it. The waist is really in focus in this beautiful dress, and if you want extra focus on the waist, you can wear the dress with a petticoat underneath, which gives extra fullness to the skirt!

House of Foxy - Romantic 1940s bride or Late 1950s look a la Brigitte Bardot

We have a total of three vintage wedding dresses from House of Foxy - an adorable 1940s dress with a-line skirt and an elegant late 1950s dress with lace top, available in both pencil and swing skirt model!

House of Foxy har lavet den bedårende 1940'er tea dress i en ren hvid eksklusivt til Mondo Kaos, og vi synes den er perfekt til den romantiske vintagebrud! Kjolen er skåret under barmen for et smukt fald i det tidstypiske a-line skørt, har fine, klassiske pufærmer med kantbånd, og de smukkeste draperinger over skuldre og barm, der giver et autentisk 1940'er bryllupslook. Den anden model fra House of Foxy er designet med inspiration efter den bryllupskjole Brigitte Bardot bar i filmen 'Come Dance with me' i 1959, hvilket ses tydeligt i overdelens bedårende blonde-overlag, der dækker décolletè og skuldre med en meget høj hals-udskæring, og fortsætter ud i et elegant, hellangt ærme. Kjolen har et bredt taljestykke, der virkelig sætter formerne i fokus, uanset om du er til det klassiske 1950'er swingskirt, som du med fordel kan bære med en petticoat under, for ekstra volumen eller om du er til enkle, kropsnære pencilskirt, der blev startskuddet til 1960'ernes mere simple bryllupslook.

Pretty Dress Company - 1950s bridal silhouette with modern, 'clean' finish

From Pretty Dress Company, we have selected three different models of ours vintage wedding dresses; a swing dress with "turn-around" effect at the top and swing skirt, Same model but in a tailored pencil cut, and a swing dress with 3/4 sleeves. All three models are very simple and clean in their designs, giving an elegant 1950s look that really attracts attention.

The beautiful swing dress has a classic waist-cut cut and a beautiful "wrap-around" neckline, as well as small sleeves that just cover the top of the arms4 and shoulders.

The pencil dress has the same beautiful upper that focuses on the waist and creates a beautiful hourglass silhouette. The first two dresses are also available in white with either yellow or pink roses that break the classic white look. 

The swing dress with 3/4 sleeves is waist-cut and with an elegant, slightly pleated swing skirt that highlights the waist, while the décolleté and neck are beautifully framed by the pointed sweetheart neckline that helps to put the waist in focus.

We recommend that you wear the swing models with a petticoat underneath, which gives extra volume and thus emphasizes the hourglass figure further.

Vintage hair and makeup for the bride?

There are many different options when it comes to styling the vintage bride's hair and makeup - in the 1940s 'Hollywood waves' and "victory rolls" were popular, in the 1950s it was the sexy Marilyn Monroe curls that were in, and in the 1960s, the beautiful, tall "beehive" made its entrance and lifted hair fashion to new heights!

The makeup of the three decades first focused on a matte skin, dark lips and eyes with liner and mascara on only the top lash line and lashes in the 1940s. Then the fashion changed to 'the winged eyeliner' (though still without liner and mascara on the lower part!) And mathende red lips and nails, and then to go all in on the eyes in the 1960s, with liner and mascara on both the top and lower lash line - all while the lips were understated and neutral.
