Rococo style wedding dress

Roco­co style will always be allur­ing, inter­est­ing and roman­tic. The peak of its pop­u­lar­i­ty came in the sev­en­teenth and eigh­teenth cen­tu­ry, dur­ing the time of Marie Antoinette, who glo­ri­fied enter­tain­ment, the­atri­cal art, all kinds of sweets and plea­sures. Roco­co dress­es have always been expen­sive and incred­i­bly fem­i­nine. Peo­ple of blue blood walked in such out­fits, and com­mon­ers could only dream about it. That is why today some girls choose a roco­co wed­ding dress for them­selves in order to bring a real fairy tale into every­day life.

What distinguishes the Rococo style in wedding clothes?

In the eigh­teenth cen­tu­ry, women ruled the world of cul­ture, deter­min­ing the look of the clothes for the aris­to­crats and indulging in var­i­ous plea­sures. Then the pin­na­cle of wom­en’s fash­ion was a sophis­ti­cat­ed fig­ure with round­ed hips, a grace­ful waist and small high breasts. Equal­ly impor­tant were small arms, nar­row shoul­ders and a swan neck. Women of that time were very bright­ly paint­ed, whiten­ing their faces to impos­si­bil­i­ty, which made them liv­ing porce­lain dolls.

Mod­ern design­ers of wed­ding dress­es con­stant­ly return to his­tor­i­cal motifs. Roco­co was no excep­tion to this rule. Lux­u­ri­ous puffy dress­es, embroi­dered with beads, pearls and lace, invol­un­tar­i­ly attract the eyes of brides. In such a wed­ding dress, you can feel like a real princess, because it car­ries every­thing a girl dreams of:

  1. Lux­u­ry — volu­mi­nous skirts, gold and sil­ver embroi­deries, as well as jew­el­ry made of pre­cious stones will nev­er cease to be an inte­gral part of the roco­co style.
  2. refine­ment — a fem­i­nine corset pulls the waist to the max­i­mum, so any girl will look minia­ture and doll-like in such a wed­ding dress.
  3. sophis­ti­ca­tion – in the process of cre­at­ing a dress in the roco­co style, wed­ding dec­o­ra­tion and com­ple­tion of the image requires spe­cial atten­tion to detail. Even the most dar­ing com­bi­na­tions are allowed here. The more gold, lace, pre­cious stones and pearls, the bet­ter, but only a true mas­ter of his craft can make a har­mo­nious com­po­si­tion out of all this diver­si­ty.
  4. The­atri­cal­i­ty — Roco­co wed­ding style pro­vides for pathos, pom­pos­i­ty and rich dec­o­ra­tion of the event. Roy­al wed­dings of the 17th and 18th cen­turies can be an ide­al exam­ple, when not only the brides shone in lux­u­ri­ous out­fits, but also the guests were dressed in frilly styl­ish cos­tumes, and the fes­tive tables in the palace halls were burst­ing with treats. Mas­sive hair acces­sories and lace fans will come in handy.

Roco­co col­ors

A roco­co wed­ding dress does not have to be white. To be more pre­cise, the snow-white gam­ma is not entire­ly suit­able for such events. It is worth pay­ing spe­cial atten­tion to pas­tels: del­i­cate pink or green­ish motifs, pearl, mar­ble, and also lilac. Today, wed­ding dress design­ers offer inter­est­ing mod­els in lilac, pink, blue and even gold.

Puffy skirts embroi­dered with flow­ers, stones or beads, a corset and an elon­gat­ed train can be con­sid­ered as dis­tinc­tive char­ac­ter­is­tics of such dress­es. They can be sleeve­less, but vari­a­tions with air sleeves to the elbows look much more inter­est­ing. Usu­al­ly they are sheathed with flounces, lace and bright braid. As for a suit­able fab­ric for cre­at­ing such mas­ter­pieces, spe­cial atten­tion should be paid to bro­cade, silk and organ­za. The bride, who has cho­sen a roco­co wed­ding dress, will feel like a unique, regal and minia­ture lady, and the groom will cer­tain­ly not take his eyes off her for a minute.
