Timeline Of Bridal Dresses In The Twentieth Century

2009-12-26T22:14:33.685+04:00

Marriage is one of the main principal occasions of a person’s life. Only marriage however allows great honor for the principals. Throughout the tradition, marriages had been considered as the special day for a lady who is about to pledge her matrimonial vows towards the chosen one. Marriage is Her Big Day more than that of the groom. This is why marriages have always been made special and bridal dresses created as such to fit the festive occasion. This practice of making the bride look magnificent in her bridal dress runs down throughout the history, with widespread influence dating back to medieval times. Bridal dresses were not always white, in opposition for what have been usually perceived by most people. Bridal dresses before the Victorian era would normally adapt the color of what is trendy and what is available. Shades of lively colors were normally used and pastel colors were also popular. But by mid-1800s, white bridal dresses became the norm when Queen Victoria chose a white bridal dress for her wedding day. The same dress was worn over a black silk dress fifty years later. She also was responsible for setting the fashion of having her bridesmaids carry the train. 1920s In his decade, revolutionary changes were done with fashion. Up well to 1920s, bridal dresses were created in accordance with what's the norm. The hemlines rose from shoe to above the knee and became more curtailed. But later, many considered the length of the bridal dress inappropriate for church services, thus the replacement of full-length gowns. In this decade, the dropped waist and shapeless bodice dresses reach their height of popularity. 1930s The depression in thirties followed the roaring of the twenties. Women changed from the boyish look to the more profound expression of a woman's body. Normally, the bridal dresses in this era hugged the body of the bride. To emphasize the shape of the body, bridal dresses were given boat-shaped collars. 1940s Fashion in the 1940s almost died down, and the same was true for the white bridal dresses. Clothes rations started in 1941 and continued up to the end of the World War I. A number of brides struggled for silk dresses but most suited themselves for the uniform. Those who were not commissioned in the army wore the same costumes. 1950s The padded shoulders of the last decade were superseded by the narrow shoulders in the 1950s. However, many brides wanted their dresses adopt the intermediate style. The bridal trains were fashioned after the trains of the Elizabethan era. But another fashion arrived- The New Look outfit. Simply put, the New Look outfit is tailored after the ballerina dresses in terms of length. The dress typically has a jacket bodice with tight sleeves. 1960s There were not so much changes in the bridal fashion in the 1960s. Ladies still preferred wearing the circular dresses, short veils and tight sleeves only differing on the veils with more bouffant approach. Most women wore coronets and a single rose with the veil gathered together from the flower. In contrast with the extravagant and flowing bridal dresses, bouquets in the 1960s were made simpler. More often than not, tiny flowers in tight posies are used. 1970s After two decades of tights sleeves, Tudor sleeves were introduced in the seventies. The high-waisted line of the 1960s gradually moved lower to a princess line. Trains diminished too and the cuts of the dresses were made far simpler. 1980s By this era, the waistlines had returned to their normal position. The dresses were much fuller now and the big bouquets returned back to fashion. This period was marked with more extravagant sleeves, suited after the bridal dress of the Princess of Wales. 1990s Wide skirts remained popular with the start of the 1990s. However, different fashion icons popularized varieties of skirts. But among the most popular are the super low waists with skirts flared down. New Century With the coming of the new century, the norms with wedding have changed too. Themed costumes were much more practiced today and so are the themed bri[...]



A Videographer fully Equipped

2009-09-09T12:08:09.500+04:00

The checklist for planning a wedding may seem endless. Couples do not realize how hard and time consuming planning a wedding can be until they actually go through the process of planning their own wedding. There are the obvious tasks, like deciding on the venue, choosing the perfect wedding stationary and purchasing the wedding gown. And there are the not so obvious tasks, like choosing a wedding theme, agreeing on the perfect centerpiece for the tables and selecting the genre of music. No doubt, wedding services have come a long way. Today, couples have access to wedding vendors that can make wedding planning a much less tedious process. For one, couples may choose to hire a wedding planner, who not only has experience but is very well-equipped to handle the entire process from A to Z. While couples are still the final decision makers, the experience and know-how of a wedding planner significantly helps in reducing the stress associated with planning every task. Most venues also have in-house wedding planners and organizers who are able to assist the couple in selecting the required vendors. But not all couples have the required budgets for hiring a wedding planner. What then? Couples may browse through a UAE wedding vendor directory or sort through magazines to select the appropriate wedding vendors. But on what basis should a decision be made? Take, for example, selecting a videographer for your wedding. White, a UAE wedding information resource , lists a variety of wedding photographers and videographers. Setting aside timing and budget constraints, couples may not do their homework when selecting a videographer. For one, it is very important that a couple views a videographer’s portfolio of work before finalizing a deal. Anyone can shoot a video. It is the final outcome that makes the difference; quality of picture, clarity of sound, experience in capturing the spontaneous moments, and most importantly, communicating the story. You also want to make sure that the videographer has experience in weddings and is able to meet your needs. You do not want your wedding day footage to fall victim to generic and sappy video editing. Providing a unique touch always goes a long way. All in all, there needs to be a compelling enough reason to pay for the services of a videographer versus assigning this task to Uncle Pete. As you can see on White, a wedding website in UAE, videographers vary in style. Professional videographers usually have a website that displays a portfolio of their work. Browse through Rebecca Hobday’s website to get a feel for what’s involved in professional wedding photography and videography and to get you started on your vision of how your wedding day should be portrayed.Image credit: www.adventurersclub.org [...]

2009-09-02T22:41:42.786+04:00

Stretched between Minicoy Island and Chagos Archipelago are the 1192 coral islands of the Maldives.

Traditional Invitations: More than Keepsakes

2009-09-02T22:42:36.546+04:00


(image) Like e-invitations, traditional printed invitations have benefits as well as drawbacks. When it comes to portraying your unique personality and the specialness of your celebration through an invite, traditional wedding invitations always do the needful.


When the environment is taken into consideration, printed invitations are not the best way to go about inviting people. But on the other hand, compared to e-mail, traditional invitations are more expressive as they can be held in the hand and can even be framed. They can be printed on beautiful paper with different textures. Traditional wedding invitations are prepared keeping in mind the theme of the wedding. Thus your guests get a feel for the wedding theme and accordingly the kind of attire (formal/casual) they are supposed to slip into.

Your wedding stationery doesn’t need to be expensive in order to look expensive. If budget is your only constraint, you can always opt for the less expensive ones. Save money on the kind of stationery you are going to use. If getting an RSVP is not important to you, then you might as well cut down on those reply cards too. E-mails, on the other hand, can be discarded very easily and can also be forgotten with the same amount of effort. As stated by most people, e-invites cannot make your wedding invitation special.

White understands how important a perfect wedding card is to you. Thus our UAE wedding services directory also includes wedding stationery by The Paper Room and I.D. Morelos Design Studio. Along with all kinds and styles of invitations, White provides all kinds of stationery that your wedding ceremony may require. Visit our website for further details.

Formal Groom Attire

2009-09-02T22:14:52.971+04:00

(image) Everyone’s busy with what the bride must wear, but what should the groom wear? Gone are the days when men’s clothing was limited to a single pattern or a single colour. If you’re confused about how the tuxedo needs to be designed, here’s a little tip: Glance through the different tuxedo patterns your UAE wedding services directory has to offer. Try and have a fair idea about ‘what’s in’ before you approach the selected designer.

Each aspect of a tuxedo comes in different styles.

Suit type – The single breasted suit is the most common suit pattern available. They come in one, two, three or four buttoned styles. You also have the double breasted pattern and the famous tail-coat.

The shirt collar- Choose a collar that the groom would be most comfortable in. If he doesn’t like wearing a tie, opt for the banded collar. There is also the wing-up collar and the traditional laydown collar patters that need to be worn along with a tie.

The tie – You have the traditional bow tie, the 4-in-hand tie and the much different euro-tie (in the picture). A euro-tie can be best described as a rectangular tie.

The lapel – Lapels are the folded flaps on the front side of a coat. Notched, peaked and shawl are the three running styles.

Studs- When shirt fronts are too stiff to be fastened with tiny button, studs are used. Shirts can be designed to be worn with or without studs. Now-a-days studs are used as mere fashion, so don’t settle for the usual shiny cufflinks. Try finding something different and unusual like the Beatles record cufflinks, the bulls eye or the guitar cufflinks (according to the groom’s preference).

Visit White’s wedding website for UAE to choose from a range of tuxedo and bridal gown designers. Our designers present ready-to-wear and well as custom made clothing.

Maroon, burnt orange, light yellow, baby blue, pink or brown can be used as a complimentary colour keeping in mind what best matches the bride’s gown and the season. The bride can also use one of these colours to create a distinct look by adding a bow of the same colour to her dress.The pattern of your wedding dress needs to match your theme.

E-Invite or Not…

2009-09-02T22:15:59.150+04:00

The thought of sending an e-invitation can be alluring, especially when you are looking to cut down on expenses. In the age of Evite and Facebook, many do not feel the need to send printed wedding invitations anymore. If your guests can get accustomed to an online wedding gift registry, then a wedding invitation through e-mail won’t be very difficult to digest either. Are traditional/paper invitations really necessary? Let’s find out by checking the pros and cons of sending your invitation as an e-mail. E-invite pros:E-invitations are definitely a modern way of passing on the announcement of your marriage to family and friends. With the click of a button, your e-mail can reach the whole bunch you are planning on inviting, in a matter of seconds.

These invitations also come with an online RSVP for your guests to respond immediately. By sending an e-card, you can save a lot of money and also save a tree.E-invite cons: Older invitees would not be internet savvy. Apart from reading your card, they would not be able to RSVP either.

Decorating your Wedding Cake

2009-09-02T22:19:03.774+04:00

The wedding cake stands as the centre of attraction during a wedding reception. That is why it needs to be as beautiful as the bride. Take some time to decide how your wedding cake is supposed to look; like the way you would decide how your wedding gown should be. The cake can’t do much for itself, can it?


When it comes to deciding the design of your wedding cake, turn to the internet and magazines for different styles. Ask your wedding planner for a UAE wedding services directory and scan through what they have to offer. I’m sure you would be surprised to see the varied and (image) exquisite cake designs available. Viewing unique designs and decoration styles always act as an inspiration. As mentioned in one of my previous blogs, the shape and design of your wedding cake needs to be meaningful. It must reflect the wedding theme and your personality. Some people make sure their favourite colour or flower is also part of their beautiful wedding cake.

There are two ways to set the cake. You may place one layer over the other making a single huge cake, or you may place each tire on little pillars.


If you have decided to approach a wedding planning service in UAE, it is better to also get your cake done by the same wedding planner. This way you can reduce expenses. Check the baker’s style of making cakes and whether he is renowned or not, before signing a contract. White provides its customers with the finest cake vendors in UAE. Take a look at their skill and potential through our online wedding website for UAE.

Pick Your Wedding Dress Wisely

2009-09-08T13:09:36.763+04:00

(image)

Over the years, brides have always managed to look like princesses on their wedding day; wearing a beautiful dress displaying different patterns and even different colours (like blue, off white, beige) to look even more beautiful. While planning your wedding, one of the biggest most exciting decisions a bride would have to make is planning on how her wedding gown is going to be.

Here are some tips that can help while screening through wedding dresses:

-Being the bride/princess for a day doesn’t mean you would not be moving around. That is why your wedding dress needs to be comfortable. If you’re able to dance with it, you ought to be able to move freely in it. Even your wedding shoes must pass the same test.

-Many brides prefer tailor made dresses as you can select the right pattern that suits your body type. If you are planning to buy your dress from a shop, be sure to ask the sales person for their recommendation.

-As brides in the past expressed themselves with light colours other than white, don’t be afraid to add a dash of blue, pink or even yellow to your white gown in order to give it that distinguished look.

A UAE wedding service website famed as White offers bridal gowns made by Ayesha Depala that are elegant yet glamorous and are known for their designs as well as finishing. Her clients range from young ladies to mature woman.

Whatever you choose, it is advisable to make sure that you love what you’re wearing on your big day. Incase your other requirements like hair styling, makeup or photography have not yet been fulfilled, you can check what White has to offer at our Dubai wedding website.

Preserving Your First Moments Together: Wedding Photography

2009-09-02T22:25:07.543+04:00

If it wasn’t for photography, we would never be able to capture those pleasant moments we want to remember. Nobody needs to explain why we need a photographer at our weddings. But the only concern of the bride and groom is that the photographer should be able to capture exactly how they felt on their wedding day. All we want is to remember is the excitement, the nervousness, the beauty, the shies and the happiness that was scattered around in the atmosphere during our marriage ceremony.Many couples seldom realize that their photographer is too busy clicking formal photographs and in the process the real charm of the wedding is lost. Some photographers even go to the extent of make the wedding album look like an attendance book! Wouldn’t pictures like the tears of happiness in your mother’s eyes, or your little niece playing with confetti add more value to your wedding album? Your wedding has got everything to do with emotion and nothing to do with formality. Therefore, finding the right photographer who would be able to capture every valuable moment of your big day is very difficult.If you happen to look for genius photography that can tell you entire wedding ceremony in the form of a tale, then you’re in luck! White wedding planners have the perfect photographer in store for you. Blue Eye Picture is one of the best out of what White offers in photography and videography. They shoot combining a traditional as well as a modern approach in an unusual photojournalistic style. Image credit:www.centralpark.com [...]



Feng Shui For A Happy Married Life

2009-09-02T22:26:34.565+04:00

You might have heard of Feng Shui being considered before the making of a building. As most people still haven’t understood what Feng Shui actually means and the importance of it, here goes… Feng Shui is a science that evolved in China many years ago and is now practiced in abundance by Westerners. The words ‘Feng Shui’ directly translate as ‘wind water’ in English. It is basically used to tell you which area to build your house in, where should the door be facing, etc. in order to balance the energies of your office, your home or any other space. Feng Shui has many ways to improve the positive energies of your living space. But only a professional Feng Shui consultant will be able to guide you appropriately.From the point of view of Feng Shui, even the plants in your home need to be placed in the right place or it can cause an imbalance. Wooden plants are considered auspicious. Instead of placing flowering plants in bedrooms, married couples wanting children should place fruits like pomegranates as a symbol of fertility according to Feng Shui.Unlike what most people think, Feng Shui is not something superstitious. Donald Trump uses it; why shouldn’t we? White recently featured a certified Feng Shui consultant called Proshat Sarabloo who is one of the recent renowned pioneers in the Middle East. She specializes in using Feng Shui in order to bring opportunities, success and harmony in the couples’s life. Our wedding planning directory also lists heath facilities to couples interested in achieving a healthy lifestyle, before and after marriage. Image credit:www.horizonspeakers.com [...]



The Wedding Cake: Much More Than A Tasty Dessert

2009-09-02T22:27:52.185+04:00

Everyone today agrees that the cutting of the wedding cake is one of the most important parts of the ceremony. Initially, the idea of piling up several cakes one above the other came from the Romans. They would pile up many cakes (each of different sizes) as high as they could, while the bride and groom would try kissing over the cake without toppling it over. If they succeeded at that, it meant that the newly wed couple would share a life of peace and prosperity together.Couples today may not be keeping such traditions in mind for sure, while selecting a wedding cake. All they want is a unique wedding, which brings it down to having a unique cake and cake topper. Many wedding planners in UAE might show you a range of elegantly designed cakes through photographs before you finally select one. But remember that the wedding cake is a reflection of your personality and it’s important to choose one according to the theme of the wedding. Therefore, ordering the right cake, by the right person, at least 3-6 months in advance makes perfect sense.We at White understand that the wedding cake is so important that it can make or even break the whole wedding theme. Uniqueness is another main factor. That is why we customize wedding cakes so that no two cakes can be similar. Our renowned cake vendors like ChoCo’a and Galler Chocolate have been creating the most exquisite wedding cakes by expert chefs and designers.
