The wedding of Jackie and JFK beautifully exemplified how formal weddings came back into style in the fifties. Jackie Kennedy wore her grandmother’s lace veil, a tiara of orange blossoms and a gown stitched from fifty yards of cream faille. The classic formal wedding.

Another example of a formal wedding that influenced millions, is that of American actress Grace Kelly with Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1956 in what was then called “the wedding of the century.”

Dress hemlines continue to rise loosening the strict formality of the 50s. According to BridalGuide.com, “Gowns in the ’60s featured high-waisted empire lines, and many brides wore domed pill-box hats with bouffant veils flowing from the hat.”  According to About.com, “Priscilla wore a floor-length wedding gown of her own design: white silk chiffon, with beaded yoke, trimmed in seed pearls and topped with a three-foot tulle veil secured by a rhinestone crown.”

Mid-decade a more minimalistic style gained momentum. The tide turned when Carolyn Bessette married JFK, Jr in a slim sheath, bias-cut shift dress. Simpson was right in line with the burgeoning style of a sleeveless gown. John Galliano designed an ethereal vintage-inspired wedding dress for supermodel Kate Moss. The sheer slip dress was made of bias-cut silk and embroidered with gold sequins and beading.
