Continuing on from my earlier post about vintage-inspired wedding dresses, how about some colourful 1950s-inspired bridesmaid dresses like in this wedding photo?

As I went through in the last post, there are a few places you can try looking for tea-length dresses – you can try the beautiful dresses of Pixie Pocket down in Christchurch, who makes to order. You could try Bella Vintage for the real deal – she imports vintage dresses from the US.
If you are in a hurry and want a bargain, you could try Unique Vintage in the US, who post internationally – you could find your all your bridal party’s dresses in one place. They also take returns, which is a great if you are a bit nervous about ordering online.
Start the look with this tea-length red crinoline petticoat:
For a more traditional bridesmaid look, you could have a bridesmaid in this navy satin 1950s swing dress:
You could have one bridesmaid in this polka-dot navy 1950s style swing dress:
And another in blue but this time it’s a blue floral 1950s halter swing dress.
Or for a different floral pattern, you could have a dress in this Turquoise Hydrangea 1950s Swing Dress:
