Isn’t it nostalgic to look through your parent’s and grandparent’s wedding album and enjoy the ebb and flow of wedding dress fashions? What are future generations going to say about today’s styles? Will they sigh and say ‘Mom – what were you thinking with the strapless dress? It’s so 2010s’ or will they sigh dreamily and say ‘Mom – you look so beautiful’. Whatever the current fashion – make sure your wedding style speaks to who you are.
Here are some wedding dresses to enjoy courtesy of the Library of Congress and the National Archives:
What an incredible veil!
This style was very Edwardian – and everyone wore gloves.
Absolutely beautiful lace – you rarely see that quality today.
Isn’t that skirt to die for? I love the asymmetrical aspect and the feathers on the bottom are divine.
Such a tender moment and love the design of the bodice – the neckline, sleeves and detail.
So many newly marrieds were immediately parted by The Second world War.
The bridesmaids are all ready.
Big hats, dresses reminiscent of folk styles and long flowing hair with a natural look – this is quintessentially nineteen seventies.
Now that we’re generally getting married later – doesn’t she look young and lovely?
