Share

Now that engagement season is over, it's officially wedding dress season. With boutiques hosting trunk shows and future brides making appointments, it's got many thinking what kind of dress they'd like for their big day. These 9 vintage-inspired dresses are perfect for if you want to go retro. Whether you love the fashionable sheath dresses of the flappers, fit and flare silhouettes from the 1950s and 1960s, or the fitted look of the 1940s is calling to you, there's plenty of decades to choose from. The real decision isn't deciding to go retro. The real choice is deciding exactly how you'd like to do it.

Choosing a wedding dress is not an easy task. No matter what style you've chosen to rock, it's a dress you'll probably have for the rest of your life.  As it turns out, though, wedding fashion seems to go in cycles. Mode's 100 Years of Wedding Gowns video is a perfect example of how some styles are always classics. The tea length look of the 1950s is a perfect example of a style that's already back for wedding dresses. Then, there's the flower crown, almost bohemian look of the 1970s. Boho weddings dresses are definitely incredibly popular.

With so many decades to choose from, it's a big decision. Hopefully, however, these 9 retro wedding dresses will help give you a bit of inspiration.
