There are many components to the look of your wedding and reception, from the attire to the décor, music and food that you can style to achieve that look of a bygone era. Weddings are a time for sentimentality and family, often honoring ancestors and cherishing the past. So, if you are one of those people, you should consider using retro components for your wedding.
First, let’s talk about attire. Some brides will wear their mother’s or their grandmother’s white wedding dress, or their great-grandmother’s ivory wedding dress, the center of attention walking down the aisle and setting the vintage tone for the day. For the bridesmaids and the flower girls, certain colors and color schemes evoke certain times in our history. Pink and black and aqua blue and black were very popular in the 1950s. Neutrals and champagne tones were all the rage during the Gatsby era, the 1920s.
We at Pegeen are cognizant of the desire of brides to have significant color choices, regardless of the reason. We offer over 200 colors of silk for flower girl dresses, ringbearer suits and junior bridesmaid dresses, allowing brides to create the color palette they envision.
Our website contains thousands of images of dresses and suits in every color combination imaginable to help give brides and moms ideas on what is possible. It is always easier to put together a plan if you have a blueprint readily available. We have 22 pages of Galleries and Testimonials featuring photos of real weddings with our outfits and over 5000 images of dresses and ringbearer suits that we have made in various color combinations.
We have traditional styling that lends itself to a classic or vintage look, a look that never goes out of style and the colors to achieve it.
