Tutu-inspired vintage-50's wedding gowns!Searching for a friend, Hepburn's as a first choice...

Anyway...just looking at the pic I'm thinking..."Giselle Act II!!"...It just looks like a tutu! Not too far from this Markova's pic(Lovely, right...? )
Still...it has been hard to find. The most of the sales on Ebay with the 50's criteria gets us usually to something like this...not very appealing.
This is another option, which even being more covered, I think is cute too...

Edited to add: Here's another confection! The site (Blue Velvet Vintage) includes vintage-inspired and genuine vintage garments (like this one). It's wonderful!

Yes, I had noticed that we had more options under the cocktail dress criteria, which is what Hepburn's just looks like, with the easy addition of a bouquet, veil and gloves.
What really inspired our searching was the ballet-themed thing. Looking at old pics, back when the Giselles skirts used to be very ample and fluffy and not too long, was the real inspiration, just as in this beautiful pic of Spessivtseva...

Cristian, maybe take a look at this site when you get a chance - they have vintage formal and informal wedding gowns, veils and complete wedding paraphernalia. Some of the gowns are reproductions, and some are genuine vintage. The beautiful Spessivtseva's costume in the photo is quite similar to some of the apparel on the website.

From Marie Taglioni’s “Sylphide”
To Anna Pavlova’s ”Giselle”
To Helen Rose’s model for Grace Kelly in High Society
To Audrey Hepburn’s Givenchi for “Funny Face”
To Alicia Alonso’s “Giselle” ca.1950’s
To Giambattista Valli’s Spring 2009 Collection.

I love all of those images, and of the dresses there simply can't be one more sublime than Hepburn's. Honestly, it's just so refreshing to see these. Thank you!

I like this one...
Oh, so do I!
So do I. Very similar to the one my step-niece wore for her wedding just a few years ago. Same line, with a strapless, fitted bodice and a full, Romantic tutu net skirt.
That's definitely the most "tutu-like" of them all...the skirt is very ample, and not too long. Also is just as simple as a tutu. I don't like too much embroidery or lace on wedding dresses. Definitely a classic. The model's pose is also very "Dior-New Look" like...the hair and makeup perfect. The shoes are too high though...
Some pearls around her neck would be fine too...

Absolutely, I agree. Platform spike heels have no place with this simple, elegant look - and pearls would have been a lovely addition.
