I LOVE the one on the right! I instantly thought that looks like Veronica Lake even before I read the post. I love the 40’s and 50’s too! I think that will all of the extras that the dress won’t need any embelishments. Your hair, makeup, gloves, stole, veil, and brooch will bring it into the time period you want to emulate. 🙂

I love that first one on you for the look your going for, very Marilyn-esq! Though I think it would need to be taken in a little at the knee… The second one is more flattering on your figure but it doesn’t scream 40’s-50’s to me.

Can we see the dress you bought?

A vintage brooch or sparkly belt will help add some glamour. I LOVE the dress you ended up getting though, and don’t think it is too generic at all! Once you have all your accessories put together with it, that will definitely help the look.

I love the 2nd one on you! It is so flattering (although both look great on you!) and I think with the cage veil, gloves and fur stole it will totally be old hollywood!

I am not saying anything new, but that dress on the right is FABULOUS on you! That is the one. I’m doing something similar in September. Can’t wait!

Wow, both of those dresses look awesome and very “bridal” on you. Nice one!

I feel like the first dress is more in keeping with your theme.  As another poster suggested, I would have it taken in more at the knee for a more fit and flare look, and maybe have the neckine made a more dramatic sweetheart.  Oh, and a coloured crinoline underneath to peek out during pics!

love #2 (glad that’s the one you got). I think gloves would be great!
