I Tried Wedding Dresses Through History

  • Dipublikasikan tanggal 6 Des 2019
  • Hello friends! So as some of you may know, I am engaged, betrothed, and affianced - and so I hereby introduce you to part 1 of our 4 part wedding video series! Being the fashion history enthusiast that I am, I decided to do a little exploration into wedding dresses through history and try on 5 authentic vintage wedding dresses (with era-appropriate hairstyling, makeup, and bouquets to boot!) - ranging from the Victorian Era to the 1980s! Which look was your favorite?

    I so want to show you my “Princess Di” wedding dress from 1991. Lol, so perfect at the time and so dated now. I remember wanting a vail like Jacky-O but as you can guess that was hard to come by at the time 🤣🤣🤣

    Actually, white wedding dresses and 'bridal white' predate Vickykins by a fair bit. It's just that it was mostly a 'rich people showing off' thing rather than an actual trend ('woo, I can have an entire new huge dress made out of The most stain-prone colour and not have to worry because someone else does my laundry - and also youthfulness etc'). By the Victorian era, industrialization had made it much easier for less-rich people to commission dresses for special occasions and have someone else launder them when they got soiled, so when Old Vic captured everyone's imagination they were better able to copy her. Poor people still generally wore their Sunday best to get married rather than making a whole new dress.

    Edit: ... aaaaand you cover most of that like ten seconds after the point where I paused. Damn it. Sorry.

    Holy shit. 5:20.... I've never heard anyone pronounce Hammacher Schlemmer in my life. I always avoided saying the name (I think everyone does!) and I'm just amazed how she didn't even have to think of it.

    im really shook by the resemblance the 80s dress bears to my mom's wedding ensemble, except instead of a bun and a nightmare tulle headpiece, it was just. like 3 square cubic feet of teased & permed hair. ahhhh, the 1980s...

    Can't believe you didn't mention Mary Quant, Britain was pretty much the pioneer of 60s fashion and Mary Quant was a big part of that and her definition of the "London look", including being a huge advocate of the miniskirt! Part of her aesthetic was "cheap designer", so although not incredibly cheap more women could buy her styles which were pretty practical in look and construction as well.

    Fun fact about 1940s wedding dresses: because all of the silk was being used to make parachutes, some soldiers would actually save their parachutes and bring them home when the war was over. They would then propose and the brides would make their wedding dresses FROM the parachutes. It wasn't incredibly popular but I've heard of several accounts, one where the soldier even proposed with his parachute instead of a ring. Here's a link to the article I read on it with a picture of one of these parachute dresses. (I personally think it's one of the most gorgeous wedding dresses with the most touching backstory I've ever seen.) www.wearethemighty.com/history/wedding-dress-ww2-parachute?rebelltitem=3#rebelltitem3

    I really loved this video a lot! I really like watching videos which are from or which provide any sort of information about the past and the times before us is quite interesting and fascinating in many way! All in all, I loved all the info and facts you gave us in this, Saf! Along with the numerous display of pictures and clips!

    seeing the 1940s dress is reminding me all over again of how much I love the 40s style. I feel like it's super underappreciated these days because 20s, 50s, 70s, 80s and 90s are super in. but the 30s and 40s (and the 60s!) deserve a ton of love! the silhouettes are just stunning!

    I am LITERALLY obsessed with the Restoration and Victorian Eras. I have no idea why that is. But they're my favorites. And I really loved that Victorian dress. You looked really beautiful, and I loved the minimal makeup aspect of it. There's a British show that I watch called The Supersizers Go... And it's hilarious but has its informative parts. If you like history, you'd probably like that show. They dress and eat from all the eras of Britain's history. It's pretty great. Lol.
