The traditional wedding gowns were mostly worn by women belonging to the aristocracy and royalty. These usually had lavish details like beading, embroidery, lacing, ribbons, and intricate designs on them. The most popular styles of Royal Daulton and Princess Dress, which first emerged during the late eighteen hundreds, were full-skirted gowns with full sleeves. Many of these dresses were originally designed to be worn by the Royal Family in public gatherings.
During the late eighteen hundreds there was a new fashion taking place in England and it was christened as the “cessure” wedding gown. This dress was a romantic affair and it was designed to be worn on the church wedding ceremony or on the Royal Wedding day. The main reason being that it allowed the young bride and groom to have more of a personal sense of style due to the fact that they could choose the type of fabric that they wanted for their attire. One of the most popular fabrics at this time was silk, which is still favored by many brides today.
Today synthetic fibers are used extensively in making all kinds of beautiful clothing. You can buy anything from silk to satin to chenille and there are a wide variety of synthetic materials that are used to give various textures to fabrics. A lot of people think that if a fabric is luxurious then it is likely to be expensive. However, there are several different factors that affect the cost of a garment including the amount of work involved in weaving the fabric, the amount of finishing required, and even the cost of getting the garment made in the first place. However, the most important factor of all is how luxurious the fabric is.
A classic example of a very luxurious fabric is tulle. Tulle is characterized by its unique characteristic of being able to drape itself around the beams and twigs in such a way to look very elegant. Tulle is often used in wedding gowns because it drapes very beautifully. It has been noted by many brides that tulle reminds them of flowing silk and this is why so many brides prefer to wear tulle on their wedding day. A modern example of tulle is loungewear.
The traditional style of a ball gown consists of a bodice that is long and falling just below the collarbone. There is usually a V-shaped hemline with the bottom of this shape decorated with pleats. The skirt is usually gathered and styled in a cascading style. Finally there is a corset back that criss-crosses the hips. While this type of silhouette has not changed much over the years, newer styles like the princess cut still look very chic.
