The wedding dress is perhaps one of the most important parts of your special day which is why the style, shape and bridal fabric choice is so important. Wedding dresses are not just exciting for the bride but also for the groom too who cannot wait to see his bride-to-be! One of the trends which is currently in vogue is the fifties style wedding dresses.
As you well know, there are never ending changing trends and fashions from season to season but as mentioned the fifties style is still a very popular trend year on year. These are ultra-feminine in style and usually include bridal lace and a bow or ribbon detail. The dress usually falls between the knee and the ankle and was used in the past for less formal weddings.
This style of wedding dress is usually made to look even fuller even fuller than normal, using a series of hoops, which are inserted throughout the underskirt. The target "look" is to achieve a tiny waist and an appearance of a full skirt. Fifties wedding dresses usually featured scoop necklines and silk and satin were used as the chosen material in the skirt with taffeta for the bodice.
Tulle was a popular choice for many of the dresses and this was layered over the dress in many layers in order to achieve the full skirt. Sometimes pleated tulle was used within the bodice design.
A wedding dress design which took the wedding industry by storm, many wedding dress designers still incorporate many of the traditional aspects of a 50’s wedding dress into their designs. Many brides who choose to have a 1950’s themed wedding do so because of their interest within this era.
