A woman’s desire to get married becomes her lifetime mission if she has found her soulmate and he has put a ring on her finger. With all the preparations that a wedding ceremony requires, the wedding dress is essential for a woman. We must say that it is the most important part in a wedding, because the bride wants to be at her best and make everyone admire her look.
When we think about wedding dresses, many images come to our mind. Over the years, fashion has changed so much and so does the design or the model of a perfect gown that is in full harmony with nowadays trends.
In recent years, women are approaching more to the wedding gown made mostly of lace aka Kate Middleton, but one can also opt for a silk wedding gown that perfectly highlights the silhouette of the body.
In the early 1900s the most important feature of the wedding dress was the veil. Women got married while walking on the aisle in a super large veil.
As everyone was obsessed with the foxtrot dance in the 1920s, such dance required a more comfortable look. Even wedding dresses were made to make a woman feel comfortable and an important feature was the hair accessory like headbands and pearls.
The 1930s and 1940s mostly highlighted the so-called Hollywood glam where tight wedding dresses were quite the hit.
The wedding dresses from the 50s were all made of lace. The perfect example is Grace Kelly’s wedding gown which came in the ballerina version and it had lace sleeves. Also, during this time, women chose wedding dresses with a sweetheart neckline.
During the 60s a change was seen in the way women wanted their wedding dress. While in the 70s there was a wild vibe everywhere. The hippies were famous and getting married without following the tradition was all everyone aimed for.
In the 1980s it was more about going big and bold like big shoulders as Princess Diana’s wedding gown.
The 90s were simpler and the wedding dress was mostly made of fabric without adding any extra accessory or detail.
The early 2000s was all about the tube dress with the sweetheart neckline. Somehow it wasn’t that easy walking in it, but women did not care that much.
As previously mentioned, 2010s saw women approaching more to the past and such details like lace sleeves, pearls, headpieces mostly made of flowers became a hit.
