Wedding Dresses - Medievil
During Medievil times, wedding dresses might have been of any color,
as white was not particularly in fashion during the Middle Ages. Silk
was reserved for the upper classes. Brightly colored robes and gowns embellished
with gold or silver thread was very popular among those who could afford
Blue, rather than white, was the symbolic color of purity in medievil
weddings. This is where the popular tradition today of wearing "something
blue" arose. If you'd like a medievil style dress without forsaking
wearing white, you can use blue as your accessorizing color.
Many brides like the style of medievil wedding
dresses but aren't committed to replicating an actual medievil
wedding dress. Many contemporary wedding dress designers feature styles
with a medievil feel.
For other brides, a "real" medievil wedding dress is all that
will do. If this sounds like you, consider looking into a costumer who
can provide replicas of medievil wedding dresses.
For a variety of unique and custom made medievil wedding dresses
(and gowns representing other eras), we recommend taking a look at Fairy
Fleming, a Scottish design house, also creates custom replica wedding
dresses for Medievil and other periods - but it takes six months for them
to create your dream gown, so be sure to plan in advance.
