60s style

1960-1965 wedding dresses
1966-1969 wedding dresses

The 1960s was a time of change in culture, art, music and of course fashion. For this reason there is quite a difference from the nipped in waist styles of the early sixties to the mini at the end of the decade, so plenty of choice if you're looking for that vintage or 1960s inspired wedding dress.

The tight girdles of the 1950s were discarded and the A-line came into fashion with three quarter length sleeves and little gloves. As the hippie movement evolved so did a style totally different from the constrained strict fashions of the 50s. The empire line and baby doll styles hiding a womans figure. Long natural hair, the maxi and the mini.
