The Wedding March - 1950 - Bridal Drama

I am looking at these trains...they are amazing. But I wonder why they stayed in fashion for weddings long after they were worn "everyday"? I am guessing it was to distinguish these dresses from any others...this was not going to show up at the grocery store. But there are several fashion historians out there, some of whom might even read this blog. So what are some of the reasons wedding dresses look they way they do?


  1. I did tons of research on gowns while I was making a wedding dress I blogged about and the white dress trend started with Queen Victoria. Before that women would wear nice colored dresses and often they would wear them again. I know the tend add to the drama of walking down a church aisle but Im not sure why trains started.

  2. I love these dresses these are so beautiful and very good.
    I wish i can get them for my wedding.
