Vintage isn't necessarily ancient or decadent. Over time I have come to realize that vintage style is going nowhere as fashion keeps getting recycled. Sadly many brides rock in-season trends that go away with time. Imagine having to explain to your kids that at the time you got married it was cool to rock a backless wedding dress, i'm almost certain that they will look at it as tacky. Some of the most stylish women were from the 50s- Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, anyone?
Imagine incorporating their style into your wedding. The result- sheer, timeless elegance. Below, are some vintage ideas you can rock at your wedding
1. The pillbox hat - Made popular by Jackie Kennedy, this modest style is definitely back. The pillbox was popular in the 60s and right now there are many modern ways to rock the pillbox. Add a blusher veil to give it a bridal effect or have your bridesmaids rock little pillbox hats for a retro classic look.

2. Brooches- a brooch is the best accessory to add to a dress. As simple as it seems, it has this transforming power and can dress up a simple gown. It can be pinned at the waist, sleeve,chest to create a vintage feel. Show off a small waist by cinching your waistline with a simple brooch. Have your bridesmaids wear brooches. Use a brooch bouquet in place of a flower bouquet.
