Spring Weddings for the 50’s, 60’s, & 70’s: An Evening Event
Quote of the day: “Don’t wait until conditions are perfect to begin. Beginning makes conditions perfect.” Alan Cohen
Weddings are such a fun and joyful moment. Hopefully you don’t stress out too much over what to wear to the joyous event. We showed some layered options for a daytime or more casual wedding in the previous post (here). This post will focus on a dressier wedding. Notice I steered us all away from the usual black. Considering it’s spring, I wanted to incorporate at least a little color. Since springtime in the Rockies can also mean the possibility of snow, it’s always a good idea to have some sort of cardigan, jacket or shawl with you to help keep the goosebumps at bay. (At least spring weddings are usually held inside–ha ha)
50’s Outfit: Did I mention that I liked the color yellow? I tried to counteract the brightness with some darker brown accessories.
Dress: Joseph Ribkoff (similar here)~~Cardigan: Charter Club (similar here)~~Shoes: Newport News (similar here)~~Belt: (similar here)~~Necklace: (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Clutch: Magic (similar here)
60’s Outfit: We were all taught not to mix our metals (gold & silver), but that rule is now extinct. I had Nancy wear her gold bracelet and carry a silver purse.
Skirt: J. Jill (similar here)~~Jacket: Laura Ashley (similar here or here)~~Blouse: The Limited (similar here)~~Shoes: Michael Shannon (similar here)~~Earrings: (similar here)~~Bracelet: (similar here)~~Purse: (similar here)
70’s Outfit: Mom made the blue flower pin to wear with the dress, but it shows up much better attached to the solid colored shawl.
