Vintage Wedding Goodness

Vintage Wedding eye candy from the February 1970 issue of Bride's Magazine:
Look! It's cute little Cheryl Tiegs on the cover.
Divine dresses with sleeves! (See more stunning dresses with sleeves from Blog Googles here and here).
A sweet girlie look that I like to call "Elegant Flower Child."
Scary hair and scary veil. Yikes! In a "part two" post I will include pics of the bridal hats so popular in this era. Think Little Bo Peep. In fact, I do believe one bride is actually carrying a shepherd's crook as well.
Bride's also includes great decorating and lifestyle articles. I'm loving the groovy floral prints around this time. This little room makes me feel so very happy. I want to eat cake and finger sandwiches and drink tea and play bridge and gab about boys and china patterns.

These are awesome!! I especially like the 2nd one. Kind of looks like something I would want to wear myself. And the fourth resembles what my mom wore. Hilarious.

Thanks for posting these :)

Thanks drollgirl! That lamp is quite spectacular. I was very tempted to keep it. It looks smashing in my guest bedroom with my sweetie's grandparents 50's bedroom set. It also looks great in my green bedroom (where I took the pics). Although, I suppose that fab lamp would look great in any room!
