1940s Themed Wedding Dresses

1940s Themed Wedding Dresses

Even though 1940s themed inspired gowns come in hundreds of styles and lengths they all present certain characteristics that make them fall into the category.

A sense of vintage flair can be found on all of these creations.

While most dresses are long and present black and white detailing, some designers take the concept with a little fresher view and options.

Short and/or sequin black and white wedding dresses fit perfectly for a not so traditional 1940’s theme wedding.

Couture designers and collections like the ones from Maggie Sottero, Alfred Angelo, Allure Bridal, Davinci, Pronovias, Casablanca, Bonnie, Private Label, Sottero Midgley, Plus size bridal, Modest bridal, Romantic Bridal and La Sposa are just a few of those who have taken the 1940s concept to new heights in bridal fashion.

You have hundreds of options that will not only fit your theme but also your personal style. Ample skirts or a skin hugging sequined number are only some of the few designs that will make you look like a million bucks and leave your guests in awe.


Wear make up that will complete the overall look of your theme and style. Some brides love the "au naturel" look capturing a sense of Hollywood glamour and innocence.

Others go for a femme fatale vibe for their day, especially if their celebration takes place at night or at an indoors wedding reception hall or venue. In this case, make up is strong and red lipstick is present creating a vintage but elegant appearance.

Accessorize your dress carefully and choose the right wedding day hair style to complete your look.
