Step into the enchanting world of bridal history starting with Queen Victoria’s 1840 wedding. Queen Victoria’s choice of a white veil and wreath, adorned with delicate orange blossoms, sparked a trend that transcended eras. Discover how these floral accents became enduring symbols of a bride’s innocence and purity in the captivating evolution of wedding fashion.
Queen wore a wreath of fresh orange blossoms which emphasized her status because few people in Europe could afford orange blossom plantations. Later, fresh flowers were replaced by artificial ones, but orange blossom was a must-have for brides whether you are poor or rich.
Veil With Floral
Throughout history, veils made of light, transparent fabric adorned the heads and shoulders, dating back to Ancient Egypt. Roman women flaunted purple veils as a status symbol, a privilege granted by the emperor. Beyond ornamentation, veils served a functional purpose, offering protection from the evil eye.
Elegant White Headband
After the First World War women started wearing short haircuts for the first time. A cloche hat which sit lower on the head, came into fashion and looked perfect with short haircuts. Bridal cloches hats called ‘Juliet caps” were made of veil fabric decorated with orange blossoms on the sides. It was worn by Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainier ||| of Monaco in 1956.
Long Veil With Lace
An important feature of wedding fashion in the 1920s was a very long veil. After the First World War people wanted to loudly celebrate the luxury of life. Up until that point, the veil had never been so long (in history). It emphasized the wealth of the family because the veil was made of silk tulle and was very expensive.
The Second World War reshaped bridal fashion, with fabric shortages leading to simple white hats adorned with veils. In the 1950s, wedding dresses featured slender waists and extravagant skirts, prompting short veils to highlight the bride’s waist. Lace replaced tulle, symbolizing wealth since the Middle Ages.
Hat With Fringe
In the 1960s, wedding fashion witnessed a diverse array of headwear, ranging from hoods to space helmets, bonnets to scarves. Veils took on new heights, often worn atop the head or attached to stylish pillbox hats. This era exemplified a dynamic exploration of bridal styles and avant-garde accessories.
Veil With Pearls
In the 1970s, bridal fashion embraced simplicity as brides opted for minimally embellished veils or abandoned them altogether. A shift towards unconventional choices saw flower wreaths and winged hats gaining popularity, reflecting a departure from traditional norms. This era marked a creative evolution in bridal attire, showcasing a blend of individuality and non-traditional styling.
During the 1980s, the epitome of bridal dreams was embodied by Princess Diana. Her iconic wedding ensemble featured a lavish seven-meter veil adorned with ten thousand small pearls, complemented by the Spencer family tiara crafted from gold, and silver, and embellished with diamonds. This regal attire left an indelible mark on bridal aspirations.
Silver Sparkle Headband
The tiara’s origins trace back to Ancient Greece, where it started as a simple headband crowning Olympic victors. Empress Josephine, wife of Napoleon Bonaparte, revived tiaras, making them fashionable. Throughout history, tiaras have symbolized royal wealth and status, becoming enduring emblems of elegance and regality.
Brides of the 2000s avoided the over-decoration of previous decades and opted for a minimalistic veil like Catherine Middleton when she married Prince Willam in 2011. Her veil of ivory silk tulle was embroidered with flowers and trimmed with lace.
Today the clothing etiquette that existed for centuries is slowly fading away and even members of royal families wear sneakers to official events. Wedding fashion remains the constant that keeps reminding us of the existence of past eras with clothing and accessories that used to symbolize something and have completely disappeared from daily life such as crinoline dresses or veils.
