Without further delay, let's take a closer look at some dresses from Retro Stage that are timeless, elegant, and glamorous.

1920s Sequined Maxi Dresses

If you’re the type of person who reminisces about Jazz Age aesthetics, your wedding day wouldn’t be complete without a shimmering sequined gown. That’s why we designed sequined maxi dresses in different 1920s-inspired styles to fulfill your retro wedding fantasy. For example, this Gatsby Sequin Long Dress, available in champagne and gray, is adorned with all-over sequins, giving you a glamorous and elegant look. The dress also has a plunging V-neckline and a low back, which add to its vintage-inspired charm, making you the shining bride.

Imagine walking down the aisle surrounded by a sea of fragrant, delicate blossoms. The multitude of colorful flowers will effortlessly create a truly romantic and enchanting atmosphere for your dream wedding. To complement this ethereal ambiance, adorn yourself in an Apricot Sequin Maxi Dress that will allow your love to flourish on your special day. Its delicate and graceful apricot-colored base is adorned with sparkling sequins arranged in a pattern that mimics intricate embroidery with a unique twist. The sequins reflect and refract light, giving off a mesmerizing and radiant aura around the wearer.

If you're planning an elegant blue-themed wedding, you can't go wrong with incorporating this hue into every aspect of your celebration, such as blue-hued florals and elegant table settings. More importantly, don't forget to prepare a blue dress to pair with the bridegroom's blue suit. This Royalblue Beaded and Sequined Flapper Dress features a high waist and a long, free-flowing skirt, an ideal combination for more modest brides since it leaves only the shoulders and neckline exposed. Believe us, it is a classic and timeless choice for your wedding gown that can evoke feelings of calm, serenity, and romance.

Of course, in addition to the dress you wear during the ceremony, you also have your reception outfit to think about. With the Dark Green Sequin Maxi Flapper Dress, you can relive the Roaring Twenties while ballroom dancing or doing the spinning Charleston! You’ll be amazed at how beautiful you feel while out on the dance floor in this flapper dress.

1950s A-Line Swing Dresses

If you’re looking for a shorter wedding gown that’s chic and dignified, then the Champagne Off-shoulder Satin Bow Dress is the perfect choice for you. It is designed to enhance your natural beauty and grace, and its off-shoulder neckline adds a touch of sophistication to your look, while the bow detail creates a flattering silhouette. Despite its simplicity, it exudes a timeless and sophisticated charm and manages to create a stunning and refined appearance.

The Pink Long-Sleeve Floral Embroidery Wedding Gown exudes the elegance and loveliness that every bride strives for. The soft blush pink color, which has been gaining popularity recently, is one of the biggest highlights of this dress. In addition to its beautiful color and sparkling floral embroidery, the dress also features a fitted bodice and a flattering A-line silhouette with a full, flowing skirt for a romantic, feminine look. Whether you’re planning backyard nuptials or a destination wedding on the beach, you’ll embody classic polish and elegance.

1960s Bodycon Pencil Dresses

Pencil dresses have become increasingly popular among brides, particularly for receptions and banquets. These gowns accentuate the chest, waist, and hips for a gorgeous silhouette. Our Velvet Bodycon Dress is the epitome of sophistication, blending the allure of vintage styles with contemporary glamour. The velvet fabric is sumptuous and soft, and the off-shoulder neckline and pencil skirt are timeless fashion staples. The wine-red version of the dress gives off a warm, inviting, and sultry aura, while the dark green version oozes high-class luxury.

The Red Halter Bodycon Dress is another great option for both brides and guests alike that is characterized by its bold, vibrant red color. The halter neckline culminates in a bow at the back of the neck, adding a touch of feminine whimsy, while the bodycon silhouette maturely emphasizes your curves. Whether you plan on having a nostalgic, vintage-inspired wedding or a modern, edgy wedding, this dress is a surefire way to put your unique personality and style on display.


Hold on there, brides-to-be, don't overlook the importance of accessories when it comes to your wedding gown! The appropriate accessories can act as those perfect finishing touches that take things to the next level. For instance, a petticoat can add volume and fullness to the outer garment, creating a more dramatic or structured silhouette. Additionally, we offer a wide range of accessories on our website that can be paired with your wedding gowns, such as lace gloves, earrings, headbands, brooches, and even shoes, making it easy to complete your perfect wedding look.
