Wedding Wednesday: 50s Fuschia Fabulous-Pin Up

 This is for my cousin who is getting married. I just love the idea of a pin up wedding. Pearls, silk gloves, hot red lips, great hair. It will make for a very sexy and alluring event.
Here is an inspiration board I created on polyvore.
You could name your tables after famous Pin up Girls like: Betty Grable, Betty Page, Veronica Lake,
Gina Lollobrigida, Jayne Mansfield, Rita Hayworth, Hedy Lamarr, Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, and of course Marilyn Monroe.

Obviously you will want to wear some sort of hair piece with a cage veil this fabulous photo is courtesy of Davids Bridal.

You can also do some great hairdos yourself using these video tutorials:

Men should definitely wear suspenders, fedoras, skinny black ties and slick their hair back with lots of product.

Some clever decor would be to use old records and vintage items like type writers and cameras.

  1. I think the men wearing suspenders and the slicked back hair is from the 20s and 30s and not the 50s at all...I remember the 50s.
