First of all, you should look in your wardrobe and choose a light dress, made of cotton, with a bold pattern. Vintage wedding dresses usually have a medium neckline, short sleeves or straps and a knee length (or they could be slightly above your knees). If you don’t have something like that, you may buy such a gown, anyway it will be cheaper than purchasing a second wedding dress.
Then you should add a belt, either thick or thin, right on your waistline. Choose the colour of this bridal accessory, depending on the predominant color of your dress. You know that everything must match.
Apply a large flower, artificial, right where your cleavage ends or stick it to a bracelet. Use retro accessories, such as an elegant brooch. Made in the 40’s / 50’s, these jewels are usually made of gold, silver or false pearls. If you want something simpler, wear only a pearl necklace, true or false, depending on budget. Choose a small bridal purse, which may be made of metal.
In order to complete your vintage outfit, apply a chic and fancy hat on your head. This will give you a mysterious and gorgeous look. Your bridal hat should be tiny, it may have feathers or it may be accessorised with pearls. As for the colour, I believe you know that it shall match with your gorgeous dress or with the other accessories. So, be fashionable and vintage, in order to be admired by everybody.
