Remember the old days when the Sunday newspapers published big pictures and detailed descriptions of the bride’s dress in the marriage announcement? I miss those descriptions, I didn’t really care who got married that week, I just loved to read about the exquisite shimmering satin and delicate lace.
I was looking through my old magazines and found a “THE BRIDES MAGAZINE” from autumn 1945. NOW, that was a time for brides – all those G.I.’s coming home from the war overseas. My gosh the bridal industry was booming! (not to mention the boom that followed – the baby boom LOL)
Today savvy brides are searching for that perfect vintage wedding gown for their special day. We toast you, brides!
Below are some of the dresses featured in this magazine for the autumn brides of 1945. You vintage fashionistas will no doubt recognize many of the stores and designers here. Enjoy!
Muriel’s Dress was made from his silk parachute.
White rayon brocade gown exclusive with B. Altmans Fifth Ave New York. A Billy Gordon original at $325
JAY THORPE Original. Gown with lovely basque bodice outlined with Point d’Venise lace encrusted with pearls.
My personal favorite a “Legend of Loveliness….” Moyen age gown in soft sheen of rayon jersey, shimmered with appliqued leaves. Saks Fifth Avenue.
