Wedding dresses are a woman’s best friend. They brighten up the wedding season and allow ladies to shine like the stars they are!
In modern times, the wedding dress has taken various forms, but it always comes with a theme – a celebration of womanhood, elegance, and romance.
The most fashionable and iconic type of wedding dress is the traditional type. These types of dresses were first created in the 1800s and continue to the present day. They are characterized by their long trains and elaborate crinoline which makes them extremely heavy and cumbersome to wear. It was not uncommon for the ladies who wore these dresses to be accompanied by a full ballroom of women in waiting – their ‘maids of honor’ – to keep the train of the dress flowing.
The next evolution of the wedding dress was the boudoir. Originating in the 1800s, the boudoir wedding dress is an elegant and sensual alternative to the traditional type. It reached its peak in the early 1900s, when the likes of Lily Pon and Sylvia Hart popularized the look. The design of the boudoir wedding dress was a direct inspiration from the male attire that was so popular at the time. The designer Oscar de la Renta is credited with making the first Oscar de la Renta boudoir dress. Like the traditional type, the boudoir wedding dress features long trains and elaborate trimmings. However, the silhouette of the dress is more fitted and less broad than that of the traditional dress. This more elegantly shapes the figure of the bride and accentuates her feminine curves.
Although the formal nature of a wedding dress is no longer a necessity, it is still very common for ladies to opt for a more casual look for special events like weddings. These types of dresses are characterized by their shorter trains and lighter crinoline. They are extremely flattering for the figure of the wearers and make them seem slimmer than they actually are. This was the style of choice for many ladies in the 1950s and 1960s.
The most recent evolution of the wedding dress is the modern type. This type of dress was first inspired by the Rock and Roll style of the 1950s and 1960s and continues to the present day. A lot of emphasis is placed on the silhouette and the design of the dress. The proportions of the body are integrated into the design and are accentuated by the use of color. The train of the dress is no longer a traditional feature, but instead it is kept short to eliminate the cumbersome nature of the previous types of dresses.
What is the difference between a wedding dress and a Maid of Honor dress?
The wedding dress is worn by the bride at the end of the wedding reception, while the maid of honor dresses are worn by the bridesmaids. However, the differences between wedding and maid of honor dresses are not limited to the time they are worn. The wedding dress is usually a more formal and elegant choice, while the maid of honor dresses are generally more casual and comfortable.
The Robeet Pattinson Julia Roberts Wedding Dress
Now that we know the differences between the various types of wedding dresses, let’s take a look at the most spectacular and iconic wedding dress of all time: the Robeet Pattinson Julia Roberts’ Wedding Dress!
The designer of the dress is Süßkind Guttormsen and the dress was created in 2005 for the wedding of Julia Roberts to her fiancé, producer/director/writer/director Robeet Pattinson.
The luxurious fabric used in the design of the dress is satin chiffon. According to the designer, “the satin chiffon is the most wonderful stuff. Even the wedding guests asked me if it’s done any wedding dresses yet.” Satin chiffon is an ideal choice for the most formal and iconic wedding dress as it is both luxurious and light-catching. The material was used for the first time in a wedding dress in 2005 and it has been used ever since as the most favorite choice of designers.
Another stunning feature of the dress is the designer’s use of wedding lace. The lace is a timeless and versatile choice that can be used for more formal occasions as well as for weddings. It is used to detail the bodice of the dress and form the empire waistline. When used for weddings, the lace represents the union between the couple to be married and adds a classic feminine touch to the overall look.
The designer also used a form of beading on the dress. This is a de rigueur feature that can be found on the richemont Sage Beswick wedding dress. The beadwork is used to decorate the bodice of the dress and is another elegant and versatile addition that can be used for various occasions, including weddings. However, for the most formal and classic look, it is preferable to leave the dress unadorned.
The Victoria Beckham Wedding Dress
Although the designer of the dress is unknown, the dress itself is attributed to Victoria Beckham. The designer released a statement regarding the dress which states, “I designed this dress for myself but I think it’s going to be very popular with a lot of people.”
Victoria Beckham is a former Panther cheerleader and soccer pro whose career in fashion began with a wardrobe makeover on the catwalk and continues with her own label, Vicky Beckham fashion firm. The design of the dress is characterized by its clean lines and contrasting white and dark colors. This creates a striking visual impact and adds a classical feminine dimension to the style.
The designer also attributed her love for British design to her selection of the british rose for her fashion label. It is widely used as a corporate logo and is associated with beautiful women and success. The british rose is also one of the most tricky florist seeds to grow – hardy and easy to transplant but also requiring a lot of water and sunlight.
Which wedding dress was the most iconic?
The conclusion of this article would not be complete without asking: Which wedding dress was the most iconic?
