Hello friends! So as some of you may know, I am engaged, betrothed, and affianced - and so I hereby introduce you to part 1 of our 4 part wedding video series! Being the fashion history enthusiast that I am, I decided to do a little exploration into wedding dresses through history and try on 5 authentic vintage wedding dresses (with era-appropriate hairstyling, makeup, and bouquets to boot!) - ranging from the Victorian Era to the 1980s! Which look was your favorite?

Over here in Netherlands a lot of ladies married in a dress from used parachute fabric during the war. A lot was rationed and hard to get and that fabric was left over after allied landed. So eventually the confiscated for the army- silk made it to be a wedding dress after all :) .

I wore the 60's wedding dress with 300 attending our wedding and my husband was in the Navy. It was in Red, White, and Blue Theme and the runer down the church was Red, and I wore White and my husband in the Blue Sailor outfit. I wore pearls and lace and the queen look you might say with Hooped slip and the full look and I was quite thin, and so it did look alright for me or anyone perhaps thinner to wear a fuller look at the bottom, and of course it went to the ankles and had White cloth-covered heels. Lace on arms, and down the front with pearls over it, and my husband bought me Pearl earrings sn necklace, and yet he had no idea of what I was wearing. Soo on our wedding day during the ceremony. I wore them and they were perfect with the neckline and needed the earrings! So perfect! I had a matching White lacy pocketbook to hold money for the money dance. A Bouquet that was shaped like an ANCHOR ( for the husband being in the navy and it is a symbol for HOPE) and the flowers were in Red, White, and Blue and the middle was a corsage to be worn for Honeymoon. So it could be lifted out. Maid Of Honor wore a bouquet shaped like the Wheel of the ship. This wedding took place in the later 60's. Loved looking at all of the gowns through the ages. Thank you for taking us on this journey. I loved them all but think the first one and the 80's were my favorites. I know you were not so excited over the 80's but it looked different perhaps tho those who were just able to see it from another point of view? The 1920's was very nice too, but not to fond of the 'long' strand of flowers. Too easy to trip over.

I really dont get the taste in 1980s, its like it was trying to put every styles in the dress except for princess D. Love the 1940's all of them look pin up women.

These were wonderful, as per usual, Safiya, love the content you create. My first marriage was completely traditional. I was a teenaged bride (19), it was 1990, a horrible time for bridal fashion. I wore my great-grandmother's pearl choker, my grandmother's own wedding shoes from her 1946 wedding to my grandfather (they were the most beautiful shoes, silk cream kitten-heeled size 6, we have small feet), my other grandmother lent me her hair clip that she was given by her own mother who was given the jeweled clip by her own parents as a wedding gift (my paternal grandma had 4 older sisters who all wore the clip, as did the majority of their own daughters, my grandmother was the youngest so she became next holder of the clip, my aunts & cousins all wore it, as my daughter will when she marries next summer), the clip was placed on the back of my head & my mother's veil was attached to it, my future mother-in-law lent me diamond earrings that were passed down from her grandmother & mother. I also wore a small pin that my father bought my mother for their first Valentine's Day together, weren't even married yet. Finally, the morning of my wedding, my soon-to-be sister-in-law & bridesmaid, knocked on my bedroom door as I put last minute items in a bag before heading to the church for the wedding. She handed me a small box that was the famous Tiffany blue & tied with sheer white ribbon edged in satin, the box was small, flat & from Tiffany's. A wedding gift from my groom from the store I always stop & look in all the windows, but never go inside (I only go in when a very important gift is required). My future husband gave me a stunning diamond tennis bracelet to wear for the first time of many, at our wedding. I put a penny in my shoe & my bridal lingerie was of the palest blue, it was such an amazing collaboration of heirlooms worn with new items, all making it one of the most memorable days of my life.

I love the 20s and 60s fashion in general. They seem much more lively to me. When I look around nowadays, I see jeans with a t-shirt and/or hoodie with sneakers (men and women) and the occasional dress in summer. It just seems kinda bland to me compared to those pictures from the 60s. But I'm wearing the same stuff, so I can hardly complain.

If I can be nitpicky...you said in the 20s women started walking themselves down the aisle "for the first time." The Catholic tradition never was for the woman to be walked down by the father. (Although many Catholics do it this way especially in the USA due to influence from the surrounding culture).

I was a professional bridal gown designer and seamstress back in the 80s and I can't tell you how many huge poufy headpieces / veils I made! You hit the nail on the head! But I will take issue with "leg of mutton" sleeves. Have only ever heard/seen it as "leg o' mutton".

I was one of those millions who watched the royal wedding and I HATED her dress with those humongous bows and all that frou frou. The train, the veil, the romance, that I loved. Her sleeves, not at all. I had a dress I had found I forget when, had to be before her wedding, that was simply gorgeous, with lots of lace, and the bottom hem was about four to five inches of lace. I don't recall the rest of the dress, but that was my favorite. Had I ever gotten married, I'd have looked for something like that.

Safiya, Love your videos.....have to make "stuffy" point Re: White fabric availability though. White has always been available in most every textile form---silks, linens were bleached. When you get to the dark end of the spectrum dyes became unstable, but WOW----you could wrap the globe a thousand times with the amount of white fabrics women used in just their undergarments in the 18th/19th century :-) White could be boiled and thus was easily cleaned and more durable than dyed fabrics that may NEVER see laundering in the life of the garment. I'd venture to say the if the 19th century gown you look so stunning in was original----it would most likely never have been cleaned in it's original lifetime! Modern dry-clean techniques would suit, but silks were spot cleaned, powdered for "food/grease" stains and hung out to freshen between wearings. Ladies relied on care for the outside of their garments and layers of clean white undergarments to wick away moisture/sweat/body grime from the inside.

The first dress’ sleeves remind me of my second costume when I did my first play. I was the Queen of Hearts and had poofy sleeves and a hat (her hair with a little hat on top) stuffed with plastic bags to keep it from flopping. I loved that dress (says me who hates dresses 😂) and I had a little choker with it. (Loved that too)
