StyleFile #17: The Retro Wedding

The British magazine Wedding (January 2008) features a wonderful layout for a retro inspired wedding. It has simple but lovely bridal gowns, suit options for grooms and some really fun details to add to any wedding.


Although this photograph post card is not part of the article, I couldn’t help but include it.


The bride is wearing white tulle knee length dress designed by Chenca for Ritva Westenius. Note the groom’s suit, floral shirt and tie, all from Field.


Relaxing on an afghan, the bride wears a white organza and taffeta dress by Designer Collection. On the groom is a shirt from Ede&Ravenscroft and gray trousers which are part of a suit from Hackett.


A bridesmaid in a red organza dress by D’Zage. I love the red peep toe shoes from LK Bennett.


Strapless ivory dress for the bride by Maureen Myring Kesterton. Check the groom’s striped shirt and knit tie from Hackett. Details from the table include strawberry shaped cookies, strawberry fabric from Cath Kidson, wedding cake by Peggy Proschen, and the ‘Just Married’ letters at Not On The High Street.


Hand-tied bouquet of ‘Passion’ roses, chili peppers, hebe and cordyline leaves created by The Flower People.
