For all of you who love the idea of wearing vintage wedding dresses we thought it would be nice to come up with some tips and suggestions that you can consider before choosing the 1920 wedding dress. They are quite popular nowadays; therefore, more and more brides decide they want to wear one for the big event.
Lately, the fashion has gone back in time, improving the wedding dress models that have been in trend then and putting together beautiful new collections that make the brides wish they lived in the 1920s.
Before mentioning some characteristics of vintage wedding gowns, let us mention some ideas that best describe the 1920s decade. From a political and economical point of view it surely can be said that it was a rough period due to wars and also due to the economic recession in some countries.
If you are asking yourself what does that have to do with weddings and dresses, then you should also know that some of the brides who got married in this period never got to see their husbands, because they were deployed to different warzones and many died there. But, let us forget about the unpleasant aspects of the time and focus our attention on the 1920s wedding dresses designs which were to mark the posterity for decades to come.
So, the length of the dress was not necessarily long anymore, there are various types of dresses that featured short and up-to-knee lengths. As the financial means were limited many brides were wearing wedding dresses that had been already worn, in some cases even more than two times. There was not much place for pretentions, really. But one thing was sure: the dress that got to the bride was conceived in a very exquisite manner.
On the whole, the 1920s wedding dresses were all about comfort and the use of lightweight fabric. Most of them used to feature sleeves. The sleeves of these bridal gowns could have varied from short, to elbow length sleeves that covered the shoulders briefly.
If you plan to wear a 1920s wedding dress, then you have to pay extra attention to the accessories. Even though the dresses of those times were not sophisticated at all, the accessories were the ones that gave the dress some glamour. So, you should go for a pearl necklace (that usually come in more than one row), several rings and chandeliers earrings.
1920s Flapper Wedding Dresses
There can be also some 1920 flapper wedding dresses that have some details only on one side of the dress or like the first three examples, to be made entirely with those plisses.
We start with two such great looking wedding dresses and these are made of satin that shines and highlights your body shapes in a very gorgeous manner. Also, their color isn’t a classical one, it’s rather gold and you can be sure that you’re going to look pretty nice in them. The model in the left has a V-neckline and it isn’t that fixed on the body.
The ruffled areas start somewhere from the thighs and the skirt is long up to the knees and composed only of ruffled areas. Also, the border is realized in lace and it has nice patterns on. Quite a great combination of elements, don’t you think so?
Our next suggestion is a long wedding dress, made also of satin in that gold tone. It has also a V-neckline and it’s without sleeves. You can observe how the waist is highlighted in a pretty manner with the help of a well delimited line. There’s also the skirt, that is long and it has here and there some plisses and a great looking detail in the left side. Also, in the front side you can observe some square details which are realized in the fabric. Indeed, some nice details on this dress as well, don’t you think so?
Another great suggestion would be definitely one of these two and we hope that you like these as well. So, the first one that we start with presenting a sleeveless dress with a great looking corset that has nice flower embroidery on and a well delimited area on the margin towards the neck. The skirt is long and it has ruffled areas on.
The other one is loosened on the body and the fabric from which is made is really silky and smooth, highlighting the body shapes pretty much. The dress has also some transparent areas here and there and this create a really nice impression.
