The 20th Century Fashions during the 40s was predominantly influenced by the Big Band era; swing music reflected the way people dressed. But at the same time there was the influence of the World War II. The times revealed a certain difficulty in creation as shortages both economically and socially were present all over the place. Somehow the designers managed to combine style and practicality to reach the status of elegance and classy.
One can divide the 1940s fashion in two distinguished parts: during the war and after the war.
These distinctive styles are reflected also in the 1940s wedding dresses. In the first period, during the war the style of the dresses was simpler as clothing was rationed across the UK and US. That is why many brides of modest means chose to wear practical dresses. Homemade accessories and curly hairstyle allowed the brides to show their elegance without too much expense or waste. The grooms limited themselves to simply wear the uniform.
The second period with the war over and materials available again, the French couturiers, gained again suveranity in the fashion realm. Christian Dior was the promoter of the New Look, that featured a nipped waist, fuller skirts with plenty of fabric and a more classical feminine image. His New Look became more popular across the ocean where designers combined several elements in order to get the effects of elegance and stylish. Long sleeves with a point at the end -that made the hands look elongated and brought the wedding ring into attention-, emphasis on waist, often with a “V” shape, made of rayon and sometimes silk, these are few of the elements introduced in the New Look of 1940’s wedding dresses.
Another element not less important is the usange of veil which in time became a trend in wearing it longer and richer reaching almost the fullness of a rich trail.
The 1940’s bride’s hairstyle is still actual and perfect for a formal wedding. The curly style confers a classical and elegant look underlining the features of the face in a delicate manner. Many elements of 1940’s wedding dresses are preserved in nowadays wedding fashion. Designers take interest in creating new looks based on the “old looks” of the 40s.11

Barbie is the name of a fashion doll manufactured In America by the businesswoman Ruth Handler and launched for the first time in March 1959. The inspiration in creating this world known doll was the German doll called Bild Lili. Barbie has been an important “piece de resistance” in the toy fashion doll market, she was the subject of innumerable controversies and lawsuits, mainly because of the parodies appeared on the doll’s lifestyle.
The story of conceiving goes like that:
Ruth Handler watched on several occasions her daughter playing with paper dolls and calling them adult names. At that time the most popular children toys were imitations of infants, and Ruth thought that an adult-embodied doll would cover an important segment of the toy market. She shared this idea to her husband who wasn’t very enthusiastic and neither his directors form the Mattel toy company.
In one her visits in Europe, Ruth Handler came across Germany where she spotted the German toy doll that existed on the market. It was an adult-figured doll mostly popular among the adults preferences as it came with separate outfits to be dressed. Ruth took the doll back home and redesigned it giving a new name as well: Barbie (named after her daughter’s name – Barbara).
She exhibited the doll at American International Toy Fair on the 9th of March 1959 and this date was known to be the official birth date of the Barbie doll. The doll was released on the market as “Teen Age Fashion Model” and was offered to the buyers together with entire sets of outfits.
Among these outfits, princess and Barbie wedding dresses wore the most astounding gowns made in real silk and tulle and brocades, almost everything that is to be found as fabrics for wedding dresses fitted also for the Barbie dolls wedding gowns. Starting from the dress itself to purses, earrings, shoes, gloves, the sets of wedding outfits were wonderful examples of fashion and inspiration for the future to be bride.
The delicacy of Barbie dolls and the suppleness of her body lines made the wedding gowns to fit perfectly conveying the status of a fashion model to be followed both by designers and by the models to wear their creations.11
The beauty of the informal style, whatever it comprises, from fashion to behavior and taste, is that it doesn’t require too much money to spend. One may say that this style shouldn’t be approached when it comes to attend big social events, for instance a cocktail party thrown by your boss for your promotion, or a party thrown on the occasion of exhibiting your first art creations, or most important your wedding. Every bride wants to look spectacular while wearing the wedding gown, and most of the brides think that this is possible due to the most expensive wedding dress that fashion designer create with their signature of one-of-a-kind outfit.
But this is wrong; the conception according to which a wedding gown can look gorgeous due to its exquisite price is totally not applicable, as there are these informal wedding dresses that can look wonderful even at a lower price. And anyway, the cost of the bridal gown is not displayed on view, so why make an issue out of it?
If your wedding location is set on the beach, backyard, cruise ship, out in the landscape of a mountain surrounding, then the options for these informal wedding dresses are innumerable; for instance there are other shops which you can visit next to the ones that are strictly bridal, where you can find casual dresses that fit the scope of your wedding day. It is quite a good aspect in this matter since your wedding budget can be considerably saved for other elements that constitute part of your ceremony.
Another aspect that need to be emphasized is that for this informal dress you don’t have to look for heavy adornments to decorate your dress, it has to be plain and simple or perhaps to incorporate some tiny sequins and pearls, but in a delicate almost invisible embellishment. If this is hardly to be seen it doesn’t necessary mean that you won’t look stunning, and besides there is a richness of styles that display elegant dresses even in their simple cut of the design. The variety of styles stretch from dresses made with a slit up one side, strapless, spaghetti straps or sleeves, a shawl worn on one shoulder, to ¾ length of a dress or long trained skirt, everything can be found in order to satisfy your taste and to match your size and desire.
Beside all the afore mentioned variety of styles you have to look also at the bright sides of your choice: it can save you money, these informal dresses are reported to be up to 90% cheaper than the traditional ones, it can save you time considering that you can take it immediately with you at home, it offers you the possibility to wear it for a second, third time or over and over again, and last but not least it gives you the feeling of coziness, you do not have to worry about carrying its long exhaustive train, or to take care not to make extra wrinkles etc. So, choosing an informal wedding dress it’s not such a bad idea, after all!11

Brides interested in carrying a more appealing and special type of bouquet perhaps will enjoy feasting their eyes on these lovely pictures posted on this page below. In terms of wedding flowers and arrangements, original means crafty, alternative, creative, unconventional, eye-catchy, glamorous, one of a kind, artistic, exquisite, noncomformist or untraditional. The modern bride is not free to compose her own original wedding bouquetthe way she wants, following, of course, the very aspects or features of the wedding, such as the theme, the venue, the formality or the season.
It’s almost crucial for a contemporary bride to plan a unique wedding bouquet that can add more glamour, sophistication and glow to her wedding day look. Now that so many accessories and decorative items that are usually artificial are “permitted” in weddings, more and more modern brides of today are barely considering a flower wedding bouquet. The real fresh flowers that used to be the top priority for wedding bouquets are now ignored and replaced with more interesting, funky and wild artificial alternatives.
We should not generalize though and say that all the contemporary brides are only interested in everything that is fresh, innovative, voguish and crafted. We are trying to say that the natural innocent and pure bridal look is not being promoted that often as the cosmopolitan vanguardist artificial look! In this article we tried to show you only original wedding bouquets composed of real natural flowers and not fully crafted bouquets made of all kinds of bling-blings and dazzling accessories. We have nothing against the idea of dressing up a simple flower wedding bouquet and make it a more extravagant and eye-catchy accessory that the bride can wear on the wedding day.
In fact, we recommend all brides – both conservative and modern to free their imagination and try different types of arrangements and decorative items that can beauty their wedding flower bouquet in order to make it look more inviting, more sophisticated and exquisite. There are plenty decorations that you can use to accessorize a plain and unattractive wedding bouquet, but it all depends on the season, formality and theme of the big event. For example, if your wedding is to be held on a sandy beach or on an exotic island then you can always use a few seashells – natural or fake, corals, starfishes and pearls to make the whole arrangement more sensual and thematic.
For vintage brides who want to go a little bit old stylish, we recommend the feathers. Funky brides can use buttons, origami or paper made flowers to decorate the bouquet, while glamorous brides can use sparkling wires, monograms, beaded symbols, brooches, rhinestones, gemstones or swags and crystals to obtain a more astonishing sparkling look.11
Nowadays, among the most popular types of wedding dresses are destination wedding dresses for brides who are planning a beach or an island wedding. It seems that more and more modern brides are electing a more exotic and tropical natural location for their wedding to take place instead of the traditional usual conventional city.
That is how we end up seeing so many beach themed wedding dresses on the market, such as Caribbean wedding dresses, Hawaiian wedding dresses or island wedding dresses in general.
These outfits are usually made from woolly light weight fabrics that can provide the bride with more comfort and a more relaxing mood. But besides the fact that these dresses are meant to suit the practical busy relaxed bride, the designs are definitely romantic, unique, sensual and one of a kind.
For example, we love the way those flower one shoulder wedding dresses look like and how the make the bride look like a goddess. Incorporating flowers or bows in the wedding dress is a very inspired technique or way to take the dress to the next level of beauty, naturalness and sophistication.
Although beach or destination wedding dresses are in general designed with simple cuts and lines, these sort of embroideries or embellishments are able to make up for the lack of complexity, volume, extravagance and formality of a standard dramatic wedding dress.
So, if you plan on decorating the whole wedding ceremony and reception with flowers, why not choose a floral motif for your own wedding dress embroidery? In case you haven’t got the chance to see flower one shoulder wedding dresses just take a look at these pictures presentment on the site. As you can easily observe, the one shoulder neck cut has the main purpose of making the dress look more attractive, chic, feminine, intriguing, seductive and sexy.
Attaching flowers on the shoulder strap changes completely the look of the dress and of the bride too. The flowers can be applied on the strap in different ways, depending on how strident, eye-catching or dramatic you want your wedding dress to be. If you wish for something more subtle, refined, simple and discreet, you can opt for those flower one shoulder wedding dresses that feature three little flowers placed in a diagonal, circular or another whimsical pattern.
For the off the beat brides there are those one shoulder wedding dresses with lavish flower blooms on the strap. A big single flower can transform completely the wedding dress and give it more exquisiteness, sophistication, naturalness, daintiness, class and style. Not only as a Caribbean beach wedding dress but also as a garden, park or nature inspired wedding dress you can wear the flower one shoulder wedding dress on the day.11
Nowadays more and more famous fashion designers are trying to create visually more attractive wedding dresses that can still feel comfy and look sexy on the brides. There is no other muse or better source of inspiration for these wedding dress designers than the modern woman or bride herself!
The new preferences of the contemporary bride are now more refined and highly pretentious, and this is exactly what fashion designers are trying to consider when creating their marvelous dress masterpieces. In this article we are going to talk about Patrizia Ferrera wedding dresses and present you a few samples of her recent wonderful sparkling 2011 bridal collection.
All the gowns featured in this collection are beautifully adorned with crystals and glowing embellishments, and they make a fabulous choice for all brides-to-be who want the glamorous extravagant look for the big day. We find these elegant brides totally eccentric and exuberant and we have to admit that they might not make the best outfit for all modern brides. There are plenty reasons why a bride may not prefer a dazzling highly sophisticated and exquisite couture wedding dress. One of them – and perhaps the most important one is the money. Not all modern brides of today have enough money to spend on an exclusive designer wedding dress, although there are brides who think that purchasing a wedding dress of thousands of dollars may not be the most ethical thing that they should do.
Nevertheless, we think that choosing a couture wedding dress is always a personal selection that is meant to bring more satisfaction to the bride’s ego or to make her look at her best on the big day. If for some brides the wedding dress and their look for the big day is very important, for others a simple natural and innocent look is enough to fulfill their wishes. The expectations of a bride will always depend on their cultural or social background and on how fabulous, remarkable or outstanding they want to feel and look like on the wedding day.
We must admit though that nothing can compare to a high class couture wedding dress signed by a fashion designer like Patrizia Ferrera for example. You can find lots of amazingly glamorous and extraordinary wedding dresses in her collections, dresses that can both fit and flatter even the most pretentious bride. The silhouettes manage to reveal more curves and provide the body with a more sleek, sensual and feminine appearance.

Browse for more Patrizia Ferrera wedding dresseson her personal website in order to see whether you resonate or not with her style.11
For those of you who are planning a bicolor themed wedding these examples of flower bouquets and arrangements might make a wonderful source of inspiration. We think that every bride is free to choose her own color scheme or theme for her wedding according to her vision of the ideal wedding or to her personality and individual style, sense of aesthetics and elegance.
Every bride is different and unique in her own way and this is what we all must understand when making assumptions on what can be generally adopted by all brides or couples. We also expect brides to understand the fact that there are no more rules, etiquettes or codes that can hold them back from planning their own perfect wedding. We don’t believe in a recipe of a successful wedding that anyone can reach or plan if she follows a certain pattern.
Freedom is the most important starting point that every couple should assume when planning the big wedding. We’ve chosen the white and purple wedding bouquetfor this article because we think that this theme is a very elegant, charming, unique and impressive one. It can help a bride or a couple to plan a very unique and distinctive type of wedding, and it seems that this is one of the most popular purposes that one has when it comes to weddings: looking original and one of a kind no matter what. Well, the white and purple theme is definitely more than original and versatile in helping a bride obtaining an enchanting look for the big day. It is also very sensual, feminine, romantic, outstanding and meaningful.
The white nuance can look amazingly inspiring and attractive next to almost any other color. But when it comes to purple, things can look even more eye-catchy, seductive, elegant and exquisite. Purple is the color of mystery, magic, mysticism, faith, fidelity and commitment, sensuality, drama, contrast, innocence, inspiration, creativity and artistry, innovation, energy, fire, flame, trust, fertility, divinity, spirituality, introspection, refinement, sensitivity, subtlety and cheerfulness. With all these meanings listed here, we are sure that now you can feel more convinced that opting for a white and purple wedding bouquetis actually a very good idea.
There are lots of adorable types of flowers that can be found in the charming purple nuance. Here are a few of our favorite examples of purple blooms that brides are using today in weddings: sweet peas, gerbera daises, lilacs, carnations, lavenders, irises, anemones, peonies, tulips, ranunculuses, roses, calla lilies, pansies, orchids, plumerias, dahlias, chrysanthemums or asters. As for the white palette, we can say that the majority of the flowers can be found in the white shade – some more creamy, others more crystal clear-like. The most popular types of white and purple wedding bouquets that we can find out there are composed of orchids, roses and calla lilies. We invite you to browse for more types of unique and inspiring purple wedding flower arrangements and bouquets on our website in order to see whether you can choose something even more provocative, appealing and flattering for your own wedding.11
A wedding it’s an emotional event not only for the bride or the groom, but also for their parents. How boys have a special connection with their mothers, the same type of relation a girl has with her father. When a girl hears the word “father”, she instantly thinks about unconditional love, protection, safety and spoil. But when a father hears the word “daughter”, he thinks about the most precious person in his life, the person he would risk his life for. But when a father thinks about his daughter as a bride-to-be, he will realize that it’s time for his little girl to become a woman and to start a family.
All these thoughts, feelings and emotions should be celebrated on a wedding event, and what better way to do that than to dance on a father – bride wedding song. This song should be chosen by both the bride and her father, and it should please them both. Although, I don’t think there is a father that would object to her daughter’s choice.

The song “Butterfly Kisses” performed by Bob Carlisle it’s very easy to dance on, the rhythm it’s very slow and pleasant and the lyrics talk about parental love.

Although the rhythm it’s country, the song it’s a favorite of many people. If you’re not afraid of spoiling your makeup, you should choose the “Always Be Your Baby” song by Natalie Grant. This song will surly bring tears on your face.
