Weddings can be hectic and the preparations can be a little overwhelming. But one task which is more important than any other task is selecting the perfect outfit for your wedding. A wedding dress is one of the most memorable garments a woman will ever wear. Above the wedding invitations, the decorations, the cake, the gown stands out as a symbol of the bride’s personality and an extension of her style. The classic white gown has weathered a lot of changes over the years. Here’s how the white wedding gown has aged like fine wine over the time.
1. The Easy Breezy Bride
In the 1910s, many brides wore floor-length, floaty dresses in which they could move more easily.
2. Beauty In A Ballgown
Ballgowns with huge skirts dominated bridal fashion in the 1950s. Bridal wear was all about bouncy and fluffy gowns. But strapless and off-shoulder styles were also in vogue.
3. Shorter, Slimmer And Sartorial
The voluminous ballgowns made way for slimmer-fitted gowns. Some brides raised the hems of their wedding dresses. Mutton sleeves were also in fashion, and plenty of long-sleeved dresses featured puffy elbows.
4. Bigger Sleeves
In the 1970s, the sleeves got bigger and puffier. Needless to say, the brides went wild for the trend.
5. Big Sleeves Made Way For Strapless Gowns
Strapless gowns were not only trendy but also a massive hit amongst the brides.
6. Tighter Dresses Make their Way Into The Scene
Close-fitting dresses with puffy sleeves became increasingly popular by the late 1980s.
7. Off-Shoulder Dresses Are The Way To Go
The 1990s brought to fore asymmetrical silhouettes and cuts.
8. A-line Wedding Dresses
By the 2000s comfortable and flowy A-line dresses were a hot favourite.
9. A Royal Affair
Kate Middleton brought the sleeves back into the scene with her wedding in 2011.
10. Chic And Trendy
Meghan Markle chose to keep it simple yet elegant at her wedding.
