Wedding Inspiration For The Vintage Bride

Your dream wedding dress is Christian Dior’s breathtaking creation “Junon,” which the designer made for his Fall/Winter 1949-50 collection. Unfortunately, The Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art doesn’t have a “rent program” set up right now. You’re not giving up though and will do everything possible to have a wedding that evokes the look and feel of an earlier era.

Running doesn’t top Gary’s list of favorite physical activities. So when he asked Jacqueline to put in a couple of miles after work in Central Park, she thought something was up. Her suspicion grew even more when Gary greeted her with a smile, like he was actually looking forward to their evening run. Taken by excitement, Jacqueline patted him down while his back was turned, looking for a ring box. She found nothing and felt a little silly. “I can’t believe you patted me down!” Gary joked the entire cab ride to the park.

Flower Girl Looks We Love

There is that one moment during a wedding when the flower girl steals the show. All guests turn to see the sweetie in her adorable dress, sprinkling petals as she bashfully walks down the aisle. We love when one of our brides includes a flower girl in her bridal party. She adds a touch of charm and lightness to the ceremony. In addition to a basket full of petals, she may carry a mini-version of the bridesmaid bouquet or wear a pretty floral crown. For the bride who plans to have a flower girl or two, here are some of our favorite looks from Real BB Weddings to use for inspiration.

Congratulations on your engagement! Once you’ve enjoyed the moment, it’s time to start planning for the big day. At the top of your to-do list is finding the perfect wedding gown. With so many designers and looks to choose from, the task is met with a mix of joy and anxiety. One thing is for sure though: you want to find a frock that makes you feel beautiful and is a true expression of your style and personality.

We spend a lot of time with our brides. While conversations focus on flowers, we love to hear about a bride’s dress, where she got it, and how she knew it was the one for her.

Delaware Valley Wholesale began in 1959 as a small floral wholesaler in Southern New Jersey. Bob Wilkins Sr. and his wife, Doris, would sell their cut stems at the Philadelphia Flower show. Little did they know, this was the start of what has now become a massive operation with deep roots in the Northeast as well as branches reaching outposts in California and Bogotá. It is an exciting journey that was started many years ago, and we are excited to hear about this industry icon.
