If you are the women or bride-to-be who wants a unique look to your bridal attire, you might want to consider 1940s vintage wedding dresses. You can find both classic, practical dresses and elegant dresses from that era are available at resale, consignment, and vintage bridal shops.
The fashion world for wedding dresses during the first half of the 1940s was limited by war rationing. Both food and clothing were rationed across the UK and U.S. For this reason, there were many brides in the early 1940s of modest means who ended up wearing practical dresses. Utility clothing in Great Britain was typical civilian wear. Due to this, there are many women who often borrowed dresses from others or wore their best dress. They would “mend or make do” with whatever was available. Suit styles were popular both in the U.S. and overseas. 1940s vintage wedding dresses came in simple designs.
