In the words of that lovelorn teen Taylor Swift, “go pick out a white dress” … 1890 style

Ah, the big princessy wedding gown. It was worn through the early/mid Victorian era (when Queen Victoria made white the bridal colour), in the 50s by Grace Kelly, and in the 80s by Princess Di. But what about wedding fashion in the non-poofy decades?

For your viewing pleasure…

1880s-1890s: bustles and puffed sleeves

1900-1914: things get flowy

1914-1918: practical years

1920s: making up for the practical years?

1920s: a daring bit of ankle!


1930s: no wait, cover up those ankles!

1940s: things start to glam up
