From the Beginning
Wedding dresses selection have changed and evolved throughout the decades with the length, fabric, style, and overall look. The fashion in the 1900’s consisted of more conservative dresses with high necklines, puffy sleeves, and gloves. As the years passed, wedding dress today began to evolve in quality as it correlated with major events and movements that happened either in society or within the wedding dress clothing industry during those different decades.
There was a time in bridal fashion when almost every bride wore extravagant bridal dresses adorned with lace, beading, embroidery, ruffles, and many simpler to extravagant wedding dress details. Women wanted all of those details in their bridal dresses so that they could feel like a princess from their favorite childhood storybook. Almost every bride back in the day believed that it was important to wear the most adorned and extravagant wedding dress. It was a mindset of ‘go big or go home’ for brides, with bridal wear that aspired to have everything in one wedding dress style.
Most women believed that because it was their big day and an event was once in a lifetime, it was also important to be dressed as extreme and decorated as possible. Their wedding day was the event that gave them a reason to wear a dress that was big and had all kinds of embroidery and ornamentation. Although that is how brides viewed their wedding day and way of choosing a dress, it has greatly changed to something different for the modern bride.
Popular Bridal Trends
Within the past years, bridal fashion has become more fashion forward with styles that steer far away from the typical and traditional wedding dress. Some of the wedding dress trends that became popular during the past year of 2016 were 3-D floral appliques, feathers, illusion bodices, sexy plunging necklines, and dramatic tiered skirts with hundreds of yards of lightweight organza fabric. It is clear that these bridal trends are more fashion savvy and became popular last year because of the statements they made for the modern bride. The bridal trends that have recently been popular are far from the traditional bridal designs that the bridal industry used to see on brides. The popular bridal trends sometimes stay for the long run and can be seen for more than a season or they do not become a big hit and only stay for that season that the trend was introduced. Some trends like a soft sweetheart neckline are timeless while others are only around for a year or two. Another bridal fashion trend is for something to become very popular for a few seasons, disappear and then resurface in a few years. The fashion world is very cyclical.
Just like the mainstream fashion industry, the bridal industry can also be heavily impacted by celebrities. Specific styles that icons are seen wearing influences the public to want to wear what they see in the media. Celebrities also inspire bridal designers to create high end and custom wedding wear that mimic what celebrities, fashion icons, high society and royalty wear for their weddings. An example of this would be royal weddings, when Kate Middleton wore her timeless wedding dress that had lace and long sleeves that showcased elegance, the bridal industry started creating wedding gowns that were similar to Kate Middleton’s dress. Almost every bride to be wanted that iconic dress that Kate Middleton wore on her special day. Just by that one royal wedding, a design that may not have been popular with brides that year became the buzz with every woman planning their upcoming wedding. More and more of the future brides during that time longed for bridal dresses with sleeves that would make them look as elegant and royal like Kate Middleton. The beautiful lace dress with long sleeves that Kate Middleton wore in her royal wedding to say “I do” became the trend for the upcoming bridal seasons to come after that day. Another bridal trend that came to be after Kate Middleton’s wedding had brides searching for a long cathedral train fit for a princess again. The long cathedral train on a wedding dress was a very traditional look and came back to bridal fashion after the royal wedding in 2011.
One of the major ways that the bridal fashion industry has evolved is with the bridal trend that is slowly creeping into the industry, which is the wedding pant suit. Brides no longer have to be seen wearing the typical wedding dress because of the new trends that have blossomed within the bridal fashion industry. Women who are getting married can wear a pant suit without being judged because of the movement that has been seen in society. Women do not have to wear super feminine designs on their wedding day. The wedding pant suit is an upcoming trend that is sure to be seen as a norm within the bridal fashion industry. There are no more rules when it comes to bridal fashion, which has allowed brides to be their true self.
