Wedding Gowns Throughout History - Part 2

Image
Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches is back with a Part Two of our travel back in time. Last week, we rediscovered the bridal fashions of years past and found trends that have carried on through today. Your favorite Florida bridal salon is always on top of the latest trends, but today we’re taking it back to revisit the fifties fashion and beyond.




1950s American actresses Elizabeth Taylor and Grace Kelly set the tone for wedding gowns in this decade. Sweetheart necklines made their debut, and ballerina-length dresses became more and more popular. Full, tiered skirts and fitted, cinched bodices gave an illusion to the women’s bodies. This was the first time that strapless gowns made their appearance, although coordinating bolero jackets were often worn for the actual ceremony.

1960s The 1910s empire waistline resurged in the ‘60s. Pillbox hats were also worn with short, voluminous veils spilling over. Necklines remained high and modest, often incorporating a cap sleeve. To reflect the S…

Wedding Gowns Throughout History - Part 1

Image
Wedding dresses haven’t always looked like they do today. Over the past 100 years, brides have transitioned between many different styles in terms of length, sleeves, and even color. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches is always right on top of the trends, but we also have several different styles for our brides to choose from. Take a trip back in time with your favorite Florida bridal salon to remember and appreciate the different styles and aesthetics of years gone by.



1900s Queen Victoria set the trend for affluent brides to wear white, while other brides kept to the usual colors of the time such as pale pink and mauve. Gowns in the early 1900s had wide, puffy sleeves and high, collared necklines. Beneath the gown was an S-shaped corset to slim the stomach and accentuate the bust. Long trains and long gloves were common as well. Brides often wore veiled hats to top off the look.

1910s Dancing grew in popularity during this decade, brides’ wedding gowns became more mobile, proving a …

4 Wedding Jewelry Superstitions

Image
Every bride wants their wedding to go off without a hitch. Are you a superstitious bride? If so, you might want to brush up on some of these superstitions revolving around the jewelry you choose to wear on your wedding day.

1. Wearing Pearls on Your Wedding Day is Unlucky. 
Pearls are believed to represent a bride's tears. Many cultures believe that pearls worn at a wedding hold future tears, which the bride will shed during an unhappy marriage. However, some cultures have a more positive outlook on those tears. They predict that the pearls will take the place of the bride's real tears, as there will be no need to cry during her happy marriage. If you're a superstitious person, you might want to just skip the pearls and wear something different just in case.

2. Wedding Jewelry Should Only Be Borrowed from Those with a Happy Marriage. 
Many brides choose to borrow jewelry from a family member or friend to wear on their wedding day. Whether you're borrowing it because of…

3 Reasons NOT to Buy a Wedding Dress Online

Image
Online shopping has almost become the norm in today's day and age. It's easy and convenient. When it comes to wedding planning, buying some items online can save you time and stress. Your wedding dress, however, is one of those items you do NOT want to purchase online. Keep reading for several reasons you should avoid buying a dress online, and come into our South Florida bridal shop instead!


1. Bridal Gown Sizes are Different Than Everyday Clothing. 
Likely the biggest reason you don't want to purchase a wedding dress online is because you can't try it on. While you may love the way that dress looks on the model on the website, there's no guarantee that dress is going to fit you the same way and look just as great. Taking your own measurements for an online wedding dress order can also be a nightmare. You're likely to end up with a bad fit when that dress arrives. While you can take in a dress that's too large, the same doesn't go for one that's to…
