The Style of 1940’s Wedding Dresses to Inspire Today’s Wedding Dresses Style
1940’s wedding dresses can be seen the reflection of what was going on in the world back in those days. The WWII has come with a lot of shortage felt on many areas of an everyday living, this fact being seen as well in the fabrics that were used to make not only day –to-day apparel but also the one for special occasions.
There was not much interest shown towards fashion, with all the propaganda circulating around about how everybody should sacrifice for putting an end to the war in every means possible. This is why all the images captured with wedding events depict brides very modestly dressed with grooms wearing their army uniforms.
One can only imagine what was in the heart of those brides knowing that their groom was about to leave again to fight in a war that had nothing to do with the American nation but rather with Europe and its nations.
When looking at the pictures of 1940’s wedding dresses we don’t see anything that relates to the atmosphere of joy and happiness that should represent the spirit of a wedding celebration. Maybe because brides looked so simple with that hidden aura of sadness surrounding the marrying couple that took away the glam that should otherwise be within and around the happy couple.
But the style of 1940’s wedding dresses with the boxy shape and long sleeves has inspired the fashion designers over the years, as it happened with every style of the past that seemed to re-born in another era with more glamour than ever. Thus today’s brides get in touch with an elegant and classy style of a vintage design with lace detailing the long sleeves and embroideries applied on the floor length skirts ending in semi-chapel train.
