Joanie Loves Vintage

a
photos from In Style Weddings via Once Wed

Posting wedding photos on this blog is usually not my thing but I guess there's a first time for everything. Especially when the bride is the gorgeous Christina Hendricks (aka Joan from Mad Men) and she dresses all of her bridesmaids in vintage. Don't they look charming and delightfully a bit off-beat?

Oh i wish I would have done this for my wedding! I had a beautiful vintage style gown, veil and shawl (my mother hand knitted it) but my bridesmaids were not in the same style. It would have been cool to get them some really vintage dresses. Oh well! There are pics on my blog from November I believe if you want to see the gown I wore. I loved it.

Kelley said...

I love her curly red hair! It looks so natural and charming.

Amanda said...

What a sweet wedding! Love the bridesmaids dresses. It's refreshing to see something unique

Christina Hendricks is my favourite on Mad Men! What a lovely wedding. The second bridesmaid from the left has the prettiest blue dress.

I added you to my blog roll! =)

That's amazing!
I always have wanted to have all my bridesmaids wear different dresses to suit their own styles and personalities. And vintage, of course.

Oh wow, I hardly recognized her! I love Joan from Mad Men. Thank you for sharing! What a great idea for bridesmaid dresses.

Happy New Year~

Violet Folklore said...

She is fucking unbelievable. I mean, who looks like that? How is it humanly possible?
I've always loved the idea of not having bridesmaids in little matching dresses, the picture of her bridal party is so much more interesting because of the differences.

Adi T. said...

lovely. I would match a silver necklace with with regal pearls... like this one.

Mathilda said...

Wow, I didn't know she had a vintage style wedding. I love all the colours, what a great idea
