And in 2009, the rustic style again returned triumphantly to the catwalks, remaining in the hearts of both fashionistas and wedding designers. Moreover, it remains relevant to the present day. How rustic style presents in the current wedding style? How to choose the rustic ball gowns for the rustic wedding ceremony? And what are the most popular rustic wedding dresses for today?

The History of the White Wedding Dress and How to Switch it Up!          Photo Credits: Adachi Pimentel Photography

Today’s awesome guest post, brought to us by Ginny Bartolone of Simply Eloped is a fascinating read about the history of the white wedding dress and how the tradition evolved. Enjoy!

When my husband and I tied the knot in 2014, exploring the complex, century-old wedding traditions was one of the most fascinating parts of planning our big day. The stories about why we carry flowers, wear wedding rings, and have wedding parties deeply fascinated me—and understanding their backstories enriched the whole experience of choosing which traditions were right for us. Now, as I continue to work in the wedding industry, and as I attend my friends’ celebrations, I’m beginning to see more and more non-white, unique wedding dress choices—allowing brides to more widely celebrate and express their one-of-a-kind personalities. At first, I thought this was a new trend, especially as wedding designs are slowly simplifying and returning to a more natural, DIY perspective.

Wedding Dresses Throughout The Years (2)

Today’s fun and fashionable guest post comes to us from Alain of Eden Manor Bridal, based in Wexford, Ireland. Enjoy!

Wedding dresses have traditionally been considered to be a symbol of commitment and love for a bride and groom on their wedding day. The colour of white has been traditionally used and symbolises the purity of the bride’s soul. However, this colour wasn’t always a popular option at weddings. During the 18th and 19th centuries, women chose to get married in a white wedding dress if they could afford it, rather than choosing the colour due to its connotation with purity. Before the Victorian times, a bride got married in many different colours including black which was really popular in Scandinavian countries. The white dress for weddings was made popular by Queen Victoria who married Prince Albert back in 1840. She wore a lace-trimmed white satin dress with a lace veil and an orange blossom wreath, as opposed to a crown. The main colour preferred at the time was red so it was definitely an eye-catching moment to see the Queen wearing white instead.
