I always find it fascinating to look through weddings from the different decades! Especially because of the distinct wedding dress looks from each era! Decades pass and styles change, but I love how one thing is constant: the effortless beauty of the wedding gown. Beginning from the 1910s to 2010s, we rounded up some wedding dress styles inspired from the different eras. With a modern-day take on the dresses, I’m sure there’ll be at least one to suit your fancy! See the evolution of the wedding gown, and take inspiration for your very own dream dress!
High collars and empire waist cuts were the in-thing during this era. Lots of lace and soft, feminine fabrics made the dresses look oh-so-romantic!
Loose and undefined silhouettes, dipped necklines, and less sleeves–the dresses in the Roaring 20s were tailored for dancing around! The intricate bead detailing and embroidery also reflect the lavish lifestyle.
Silhouettes still loose, the wedding dresses of this time were truly sophisticated. The simple yet elegant designs probably make the dresses from this era the most timeless!
Many of the dresses of this war-decade were shorter for practicality’s sake. You’ll be looking either quirky or laid-back yet ladylike, with the vintage-style dresses from this era!
Tea length and full skirts make the wedding dresses of this time the absolute cutest! The girly style will have you looking like the sweetest bride there is. For an added cutesy look, bring in the bow!
Shift dresses are what this era is most known for. Breaking away from the conservative, these dress designs truly make a bold statement–which was what this decade was all about! Structured designs and A-line skirts were also in!
Free-flowing dresses and bohemian vibes, this era has got to be my personal favorite! The off-shoulder cuts, loose fits, and flowing fabrics will make you feel so comfortably stylish.
It’s all about strong power (or puffy) sleeves and ornate details in this era! Probably the most extravagant out of all the eras, don’t be afraid to go over the top here!
Although a little bit less out-there than the prior decade, the wedding dresses in this era will still definitely have you feeling like a princess. Don’t forget to show off your shoulders for a more graceful touch!
Strapless gowns and tube dresses dominated this era. Designs were more simple with less beadwork–having quite a sophisticated back-to-basics feel to them.
Think about embracing your curves and bringing out your personality! Textured details and delicate beading also add an understated beauty to the wedding dresses of the now.
