8 vintage wedding gowns inspired by Lily Allen’s Vegas dream dress

8 vintage wedding gowns inspired by Lily Allen’s Vegas dream dress

The singer wed actor David Harbour in a Las Vegas celebration this week


When big groups can’t gather, when bridal shops are restricted, and when all that’s open for a party is a fast food drive-thru, what do you do? You head to Vegas and have the most 50’s-tastic wedding ever.


Singer Lily Allen and actor David Harbour delighted fans yesterday when they revealed that they had gotten married in the Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, by an Elvis impersonator, no less. The pair looked blissful in their wedding photos, pictured laughing outside of the chapel before treating themselves and the family to burgers and fries at the reception.

Allen looked stunning in a vintage-style short white dress, veil, and black pumps — the whole look was very 50’s, and it got us dreaming about the vintage-style wedding gowns we’d love to don at our own nuptials.
