Various Designs for 1970s Wedding Dresses
The 70s came with more particular approaches to the styles and designs that represented 1970s wedding dresses, since more individual perspectives started to replace the desire of a woman to look like a cinema diva. Thus various styles began to emerge to reflect the image of a bride wearing the dress that seemed to be made just for her.
There were various stages through which fashion trends have passed before reaching the disco age which came with its own unique style with the early 80s. Thus we find the neatly cut lines of empire style with long sleeves and long veil to adorn the bridal hair.
A decent and romantic look of the bride was reflected by this style that introduced also new materials like hand made Chantilly and nylon while a Victorian neckline style was the common element of these wedding dresses in the early 70s. Then this style evolved towards shorter sleeves to be attached to the design that again didn’t emphasize the waist line but rather the bust line right from the breast level.
Balloon sleeves were more on fashion by the mid 70s completing a neo-Victoria look of the 1970s wedding dresses. The ruffled adorned neckline was very popular in those days adding a new romantic look to the overall bridal image.With the latest years of the 70s when disco age was dawning at the horizon, we find more changes brought in to the 1970s wedding dresses.
Designs with drop backs and the batwing sleeves were the most commonly met features of a bridal gown while the floor length skirt was complemented by a long train. As mentioned above, the 70s have generated many design styles in their evolution with various fashion designers trying to find their own vision and personal approach to this important gown in the life of a woman.
