Our hearts are all aflutter over UV Darling, Tiffany’s charming rustic wedding. From the brightly colored bouquet and sparkling strands of lights to the lively 1930s and 40s jazz music, we loved hearing everything about her vintage-inspired farmhouse wedding.
One of the first things that comes to mind when you think of weddings is the classic white bridal gown. While we adore traditional weddings, there’s something absolutely fabulous about a bride that forgoes convention and does something truly unique. So when UV Darling, Brianna told us about her rockabilly inspired wedding complete with a stand-out retro dress we couldn’t resist sharing.
UV Darling, Jacqueline, recently tied the knot with her sweetheart in a charming 1950s themed ceremony. With a candy-colored red and white color palette, poodle skirts, and whimsical bridesmaid dresses from Unique Vintage, this mid-century matrimony is one of our favorites!

This past weekend I had the honor and pleasure of attending a wonderful 50th wedding anniversary. It was gorgeously decorated, with poster-sized pictures of the happy couple on their wedding day many years ago, mums as floral arrangements to give it that fall, rustic feel, personalized 1961 CDs party favors, and just enough gold to pay homage to this special anniversary. Why am I shamelessly promoting this fabulous event you might ask? It’s not just because it was my mother who decorated or the fact that I helped. No, no, it is definitely because the happy couple is my grandparents!
Amidst the hustle and bustle of the party and rocking out to some Elvis Presley, I found myself looking at this gorgeous picture of my grandmother in her wedding dress. It was 1961 and she was dressed in a gorgeous tea length sleeved dress which was so classically sixties I could barely stand it. She saw me admiring it and came over and said, “Honey, that dress couldn’t have cost me more than $50!” I just loved the classic, Audrey Hepburn influence to her wedding dress, with its elegance and simplicity. Swoon. I almost wished I could get married back then, just to wear that sort of gown.
(My grandmother, affectionately called Nannie.)
While wedding dresses today can cost up to the thousands upon thousands of dollars, Unique Vintage has some amazing options if you are going for a nod to the sixties, or a more modern look to make a bride’s special day one she will look back on at her own 50th wedding anniversary!
