History of Wedding Dresses

Whether you are for or against the institution of marriage, admit you all like it, bouquets of flowers, tulle, the centerpieces, white dresses… Squeeee! Why not explore the history of the dress in the West?


History with a capital H
Since Roman antiquity, in the West, the brides wore white robes and crowns of flowers of Orange hair, symbols of purity. On the other hand, the custom is lost during the middle ages: women, especially those of the poorest classes, simply wore their best dress, regardless of color, and, until 19e century approximately.

To 19e century, with the influence of the Roman Catholic religion, the dress became white.Symbolically, white is the representation of virginity, purity and the innocence of the future Mrs. The white dress worn by Queen Victoria in 1840 raise strong fashion in the aristocratic classes.

The 20e century

On the other hand, the White is not a rule. For example, at the beginning of the XXe century, when a widow remarried, it was unthinkable that she’s wearing white again because she was more pure and virginal #SoOverrated. White became the norm from the 1950s. Grace Kelly, that tell you something?

The wedding dress has always been influenced by the fashion of the time. Take a look at the Pauldigo.com for vintage wedding dresses and easily recognized patterns of the 1930s, 1960 or 1980. More things change, the more it’s the same, they say.

Because we’re in 2016

These days, because we’re in 2016-and more widely to 21e century – everything is allowed for brides. A shaded dress? Why not! Transparency? Ben kin! Lace, pearls, diamonds, rhinestones? Oh yes! Short dress? Long dress? Asymmetrical dress? You go, girl! White remains THE undisputed color of young brides, but personally, I don’t spit on a beautiful champagne dress or funky patterned.
