How to have a Vintage Hollywood Inspired Wedding

Looking to add a touch of Vintage Hollywood Glamour to your wedding day? In this blog we feature some of our favourite classic Hollywood inspired looks from the Hollywood ‘golden age’.

The Venue

Dark, moody, period venues work better for a classic Hollywood feel than brightly lit modern venues.

Sweeping staircases, chandeliers, and high ceilings all have a vintage glamorous vibe.

The dress

Look at classic Hollywood legends for inspiration for your Oscar worthy Vintage Hollywood wedding dress. Our favourite style icons from Hollywood bygone days are Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall, Grace Kelly & Marylin Monroe.

You can’t go wrong with a long, fitted silk gown.

Or a vintage inspired non-white silk strapless dress

Or you could go all out 1950s Audrey Hepburn glamour with this black boat neck dress.

Your bridesmaids will look stunning in rich bold colours such as red or gold.


Opt for headpieces, feathers, vintage hair pieces instead of a veil.

If you have your heart set on a veil then the birdcage style works best for the Hollywood bridal look.

Go for satin, beads, sparkle, feathers, and texture on your accessories.

A pair of beaded or sparkly heels are the perfect shoes for your film star look.

Hair & Make Up

Nothing speaks Hollywood Glamour hair and make up to us more than big waves and red lippy.


Create a feeling of opulence with tall table centre pieces Go for rich, dark tones and plenty of texture.

Feathers and red roses & rich colours ooze with Hollywood glitz & glamour.

And you can try adding lots of glass and crystal for a luxurious look.

Food and drink

It’s not the most practical item but the classic Hollywood party features a champagne tower.

Choose a cake in rich dark tones such as gold or black
