We all want our wedding dress to be special, look amazing and be something we admire in our wedding photos for years to come, even as fashion changes. It is a dream to have your wedding dress and wedding photos withstand the test of time.
Every bride knows that her wedding gown is of crucial importance to her wedding day, but it is also an inspiration from which the look of the whole day will evolve. Many wedding themes have germinated from the bride’s desire to dress in a particular style, colour or mood.
When choosing your gown, consider the bigger picture, what mood are you looking to create. Theme weddings are often the most visually memorable.
True Bride has been online for over fifteen years. Over this time we have seen some exquisite gowns, and from time to time we see some very ‘unique wedding dresses’ and unique bridesmaid dresses, which we enjoy sharing with you.
This beautiful purple wedding dress above, we couldn’t decide whether it was from the medieval era or something a little more “Old-English”. Would be interested in your thoughts?
These beautiful black and cream wedding gowns with parasols, reminded us of a modern take on the ‘Southern Belle’. Southern Belle, (derived from the French word belle, ‘beautiful’) is a description of a young woman of the American Deep South’s, upper socioeconomic class.
A Southern belle of that era was keenly aware of the popular fashion of that time who typically wore a hoop skirt, a corset and pantalettes. They also frequently carried parasol umbrellas and hand fans. As was fashion at the time, these young women shielded themselves carefully from the sun, as a sign of tanning was considered working-class and unfashionable. Southern belles were expected to marry respectable young men, and become ladies of society dedicated to the family and community.
The beautiful gown below, has an intricate black bodice, with gold, black, pearl and silver beading. Another take on the traditionally wedding dress.
