Iconic Celebrity Brides: The Vivacious Marilyn Monroe

Next up on our journey through the fabulousness that is "vintage celebrity brides" is the legendary Marilyn Monroe.
As most of us know, Marilyn had a rollercoaster of a life full of great highs and unfortunately great lows. But a wedding day will always be filled with happiness, joy and promise and we'd like to keep things jolly here at Dirty Fabulous HQ so we'll focus on these!

Marilyn was married 3 times in her short life. Early on at 16, in her heyday as Norma Jeane but in order to secure a movie contract she sought a divorce.

Her second marriage was to Joe DiMaggio who remained a close friend to Marilyn.
For this ceremony Marilyn looked chic and relaxed in a black dress suit that had a super cute matching jacket with ivory fur trimmed collar.

Dirty Fabulous has a similar 1950's jacket in stock. I love the bow detail at the waist,
€320 size 10-12
On her third wedding day, which was to Arthur Miller, Marilyn wore a simple but beautiful blush fitted dress that hugged her curves to perfection. 
It's such a classic "Marilyn"shape that in vintage circles, similar pencil dresses are known as "wiggle" dresses as the nipped in knee and hip hugging shape make you wiggle as you walk, just like Marilyn!

We have this stunning 1950's lace wiggle dress with satin bust which is so reminiscent of Marilyn's.
€380 size 10-12 

To complete her ensemble, Marilyn wore a demure cap with tulle short veil.

This 1950's bow cap and veil from Dirty Fabulous is perfect piece to help you bring a little Monroe glamour to your wedding day. 

Whatever your bridal style add a touch of vintage glamour, you know your inner starlet wants you to!
