A 1940s Wedding Dress
Many blogs talk about wedding and many of them about vintage wedding. This is why I thought it was the right time for me to introduce “Le Vintagerie Wedding by Esterita” which is supposed to be one of a kind, as the blogger beside to be an excellent knower of Vintage, is also the owner of a vintage bridal boutique, VINTACHIC, with a collection of over 300 gowns from 1880 to 1980, that makes the store unique in Europe. My future Brides not only will certainly find a unique wedding dress, but they will also benefit of my vintage consulting.

This first time we’ll go back in  1940s, excactly in the WWII, inside the movie “Allied”, a Robert Zemeckis movie with Brad Pitt and  Marion Cotillard. As you know, during the war the crisis was very deep and it was a hard time for any kind of expenses, especially for a wedding dress. It was also a dramatic moment to have a party, therefore any kind of celebration needed  to be extremely sober.
The very few brides that were lucky enough to get married in a proper wedding dress, were used to gift a  less fotunate girl by giving her their own gown, after the wedding, and so on and on so that a single dress was going to be used several times… Some other bride got married  simply in an elegant dress, usually in a solid color enriched by a beutiful headpice or hat: just like Marianne in the movie. The result was lovely even so, as 1940s were so glamourous that a woman was charming by wearing even a simple overall!

Marianne dress was amanzigly glam, in that light blue/grey silk chiffon, mid calf lenght and long sleeves. After all nothing more than a tea dress, but the canonical little flowery headpiece in the hair, and the small bouquet made of it a unique Bridal Dress!

The very moment I saw the trailer of “Allied” and the wedding scene, the dress reminded me of one of the vintage wedding dresses of my collection, the same color, the same fabric and a very similr shape except for the lengh, as mine is floor lenght. Put the pictures closed and see yourselves: isn’t it quite the same?

It could certainly be an ispiration for your bridal dress, if you are a sophysticated and refined type, otherwise keep on reeding this blog as I’ll talk about other decades!
