Cheerful Weather for the Wedding

I stumbled upon Cheerful Weather for the Wedding today on Netflix, and from the beginning loved the visuals. It's a 1930s period piece about a woman having second thoughts on her wedding day, and the film jumps between her wealthy dysfunctional family, and memories from the previous summer she spent with a past boyfriend. 

I'll watch anything 30s/40s for aesthetics alone, though this was just the kind of story I enjoy. Not nearly as heavy as I expected, there were actually a few giggle worthy parts, and I became more invested in the characters as the story progressed. It's one of those movies I can draw inspiration from, as well as watch multiple times and get something fresh out of it every time. 

The cast was great, the few likable characters stayed on the sidelines (but I enjoy leads who I don't necessarily root for), and it was just so pretty, why not watch it ;)

Marvelous costuming at work here. I'm with you completely. I'll watch pretty much anything set (or filmed during) in the mid-twentieth century for the costuming, hairstyles, make-up and settings alone.

I also watch anything with historical costumes, especially 20s! Of course, old movies from that period are the best to show the fashion of the era, I enjoy them very much. This movie looks very interesting, i think I'll check it out :))

Leah said...

Kirsten McNee said...

Aw amazing outfits! This is something I'll have to watch, and what a great young british cast.

Oh Yes! I saw it in Netflix on Sunday and I watched it straight away as I love Felicity Jones.

Her striped silk pajama/play suit at the end was to die for, no?!

zilredloh said...

And by striped I mean floral. heh

Allison Teresa said...

Haha that's so funny. I watched this a week or two ago and was so enthralled with the aesthetics as well. The story bummed me out a bit, but it was still lovely. I'd kill for some of those clothes!

I saw this movie and especially loved the visual of the whole look, very dreamy. The main character who couldn't make up her mind I found to be a bit of a doopy thing lol..my favorite was the young woman with the hat and fur you picture here she was so interesting. Yes I seek out movies like this for the wardrobe.

Danielle Hinton said...

Wow. This looks like it's worth watching for the costuming alone! Definitely going to check it out. Thanks!

Lexi said...

Thanks! I've been looking for a new period piece to devour!

Retro Chick said...

I got all excited then, then remembered UK netflix has different things to the US one. Will have to go and see if it's on it!

I loved this movie, I picked it up on Netflix for the clothing but I just adored it, especially how gray all the characters were, no one was really good or bad, just very human. And her little white shorts and rainbow striped top made me absolutely swoon! And her wedding dress was amazing, I just love the drape of the dresses of that era, so romantic.
