If you’re planning a wedding inspired by the Great Gatsby, the bridal party dresses should match the 1920s theme. In fact the white dress is ideal for a Great Gatsby style wedding dress! These gowns from Pretty Eccentric will be loved by your bridesmaids, and they’ll also be able to use them after the big day – the mint green dress is perfect for a Christmas party.

The House of Roxy

Vintage vixens will love these glamorous dresses from the House of Roxy – in fact, brides who adore all things retro might even end up snapping up one of these bridesmaids’ dresses for themselves. The red halterneck dress would work well next to a halternecked wedding gown, whilst the polka dot dress is ideal for a more glamorous affair.

Lady V London

Lady V London produces beautiful 1950s style dresses in a range of gorgeous fabrics. In fact, one of the hitched team decided to use their dresses for their own bridesmaids!

Our designer, Heather (pictured with her best girls below), explains why she went for vintage bridesmaid dresses: "My husband and I chose to have a retro ‘50s style wedding. We love that era, everything from the clothes to the music. I was searching online for 50s bridesmaid inspiration and found Lady V London’s website. I saw these beautiful swing dresses, all the same style but all with different coloured floral patterns, and thought it would make a unique addition to our wedding, rather than sticking to traditional single colour bridesmaid dresses."

Floral Prints

Any kind of floral print helps to add a vintage feel when it comes to bridesmaid dresses. We love these Cath Kidston-esque gowns, snapped at East Horton Golf Club, and I think it’s a pretty safe bet that the bridesmaids love them too!
