Vintage Wedding Dresses - Stunning 1970s, 1960s and 1950s Gowns

Popularised by Queen Victoria in the 19th century, the white wedding dress still reigns the aisle. From the short dresses with cloche-style veils of the 1920s to the floor length, puff-sleeved dresses with train veils of the 1980s, wedding dresses throughout the 20th century have tended to follow the fashions of the time. White wedding dresses are as eye-catching as they are adaptable – they can and have been masterfully reinvented over the decades to remain their spectacular.

Some of the most iconic wedding dresses worn in the past century can be found amongst the royal and famous. In her wedding to Frank Sinatra in 1966 (which famously took 15 minutes), Mia Farrow wore a simple skirt suit with spare accessories. Princess Diana did not cut down on the excess at her 1981 wedding to Prince Charles, with a 25-foot train veil which is the largest in royal wedding history. Raquel Welsh wore a very 1960s crocheted mini dress with a white fur coat when marrying her second husband Patrick Curtis; and Elizabeth Taylor, who married eight times, went from an elaborate white chiffon 1950s wedding dress with a net veil at her first wedding to a short, hooded, forest green dress at her fourth, and back to a classic white draped dress on her final special day.
