My obsession with wedding blogs has meant that I have been inundated with beautiful images of all different kinds of weddings. Because I have seen so many possibilities, I came to ask myself "What kind of bride do I want to be?" Sure, sure. I've already divulged that the wedding itself will be a fairly laid back, backyard party, but that doesn't mean I have to be a casual bride. In fact, quite the contrary.
I'm not sure what it is that draws me to the look, but I just love Old Hollywood glamour. Pretty much the only part of my daily fashion that actually reflects this is the 7-pearl cocktail ring I wear...even with the most casual of outfits...even in the shower (I'm commited.). Seriously, though, it's not exactly the kind of look you can pull off any day. And if you do, you have to really commit to it...like Dita Von Teese.
With that said, I've decided that I want to be an Old Hollywood glamour bride. Nothing says Old Hollywood glamour like Rita Hayworth, so here's a little inspiration:
Of course, there's absolutely no way to achieve this look without a birdcage veil.
