I think it'd be cute if the BM dresses were the classic Marilyn Monroe dress, just not white lol...

As far as the 1950's... lace, and pearls my dear lol. BUT Marilyn Monroe, I see glitz and glamor.

I love this cupcake. I was going to do cupcakes for my wedding, until I changed my mind to cake balls... ANYWHO, maybe change the red to pink? Are you doing hot pink or baby pink?

Then there's this cake I found... very vintage feely. I guess it all depends on if you want 50's pin up girl, or 50's vintage elegance. :)

www.unique-vintage.com has some darling dresses that you could use for you and your BMs! You can find shoes and accessories here as well and they are very reasonably priced.

Anything Michael Buble really... I think he really has that 1940-50 vibe :)

OOOO Morgan.... I just thought of something... IDK how "shy" you are... but maybe you can work something out with your photographer and do a boudoir session. Get a cute sexy corset, thigh high tights, high peep toed heels... Do the session and present the photos to your FH as a gift?!? I would do it, but that's just me lol

hmmmm i'm not a big michael buble fan...i'm more of a punk rock girl...but i'm really looking for romance songs from the actual 50's
i've got a few Marilyn Monroe songs in mind and i'm walking in to "At Last" by Etta James

personally...I would LOVE that lol but my dad is a preacher and my mom is very religious...we argue about the bridesmaids dresses which she claims is too low cut can she demands a modesty panel and i don't want it
so anything "sexy" is out of the question =[

Are you dying your petticoats? That would be fab!

My theme is polka dots, but it's kind of 50s as well. What about from Van Morrison music? Buddy Holly? I was originally planning to do the Beatles for everything until FH nixed that (they are more 60s than 50s anyway). Please please please get some fierce shoes! No point wearing a tea length dress and not having amazing shoes!

You have lots of time, and I suppose I can understand your mom's point of view (I'm from a really conservative family as well). It's weird, be have the same colour scheme too.
