Detailed Backs.  “Backs are going to be the main feature in 2014.  Thanks to vintage influences in 2013, 2014 is going to be packed with this subtle yet sexy feature.  We are talking keyholes, jeweled
embellishments, architectural pleating and lace fill-ins.”

 Rustic is out. Elegant is in. 

“Brides are looking for contemporary design with traditional touches. Budgets will still be tight but there will be increased spending on uniqueness and interactive activities for guests.”

Retro 1950’s

With the return of Mad Men to prime time, the hottest show on TV has inspired a 50′s revolution in fashion and decor which will show up in weddings this year. Whether it is a bridal gown with a tightly cinched waist and full skirt, a full-blown martini bar, or hints of 1950′s style sprinkled throughout the entire wedding, the ’Nifty Fifties’  are upon us. If you have any doubts, pick up the latest issue of Florida Bride for the latest trends and vintage styles.

How can you get the look?
Makeup in the 1950′s was sophisticated and glamorous, simple and elegant. Strong eyebrows, neutral lids, and dark liner. As far as lipstick is concerned, you only have one choice: red. However, select a shade that compliments your skin tone so that you don’t wind up looking washed out. As always, if you use a makeup professional you have a much better chance of achieving the Audrey/Marilyn/Grace Kelly style.

Gowns were magnificent creations of lace and tulle. Full skirts with tiny waists, big veils, loads of detail and tea length gowns were the style. Choose a gown that accentuates the best of both you and the style of the decade. If you opt for a strapless gown, consider a bolero
jacket or a shrug, each one were equally popular in the 1950′s. Tuxedos have not changed drastically since the 1950′s but the difference is in the details. The ties were narrower, the
shirts always pleated, the cummerbund was white or black and the lapels were slimmer.  Straight leg pants, patent leather shoes and a spring in your step with complete the look. White dinner jackets were also very popular but, for the most formal occasion – tails were the norm.
