If you are going to choose vintage wedding dress styles, there’s no better way to boast your classic personality on your special day than with a 1950s wedding dress style. White and traditional in style in most cases, you’ll look the part of a modest, innocent bride.
The 1950s weren’t about showing a lot of skin. If we compare some of the wedding dresses from today, you will find that 1950s wedding dresses looked extremely modest. Their styles tended to be of traditional length with sleeves, a not-too-low neckline, and few embellishments. Ultra-feminine wedding dress styles were the “in” thing in the 1950s. That is why the wedding dresses reflected that notion. Thanks to Dior and a lifted restriction on fabric usage now that World War II was over, wedding dresses came in full skirts, rounded shoulders, a much emphasized waist, a bodice with “pointed bosom,” and they were worn with tall, thin heels.
