    I adore the idea! 50s vintage is gorgeous! I’m a little biased, though, because my everyday style is 50s pinup, so I’m all about the red lips, winged eyeliner, swing skirts, crinolines, polka dots, and victory rolls!

    And the DIY flowers are adorable!

    For bridesmaids’ dresses, check Etsy – tons of 50s style halter dresses. I’ve seen several sellers who offer some discounts for buying bridesmaid dresses and they’ll ensure the fabric is the same lot, etc.

    I love vintage weddings. I also love the 1950s and use parts of that era in my everyday look. I do think that “1950s” parties can look costumey if done too literal. I think polka dots are too easy and kind of cheesy (in my opinion). Why not put your bridesmaids in authentic vintage dresses? I bet it would look cool and be cheaper. I also find too much red/white/black to be kind of 1950s diner and not wedding. Check out vintage weddings on Pinterest because this theme can be done soooo well without feeling like a party for the cast of Grease. i love the suspenders!
