Weddings — The 1950’s
Elaborate Church Weddings Were Now In Vouge…
The thing that marks weddings of this decade is the return of dignity. Elaborate church services have come back into vogue. The utmost in correct formal attire is expected not only of the bride, but also the groom, and his ushers. It is not uncommon for people of moderate circumstances to rent all the wedding costumes. But rented or owned, the attire is worn proudly, and form a cherished picture by all who view the affair.*
The post-war years saw a return to traditional ideas of love and marriage. Contemporary style romanticized the female figure. Wedding bouquets were more angular and geometric with strings of pearls, glittered netting, fabric and lace. The 1950s were an age of novelty for wedding bouquets. Florists created bouquets the shape of butterflies and hearts, and parasols with garlands.**
