So your Prince Charming has got down on one knee, popped the question, and put a ring on it. Congratulations! Now you’ve found “The One”, it’s time to find the other one: your wedding dress!
Audrey Hepburn was a much beloved actress, both on-screen and in real life. She became a film and fashion icon shortly after entering the world of Hollywood. Because of this, she had many admirers who tried to win her heart, and two that won her hand.
Elizabeth Taylor, as well as being an acclaimed actress of the 1950s and ’60s, was also a prolific bride! As she was a style icon, her private life received almost as much scrutiny as her characters on screen. And, she clearly loved marriages, or at least weddings, as she tied the knot eight times.
The 1920s were a brief respite from the horrors of World War One before the austerity of the Great Depression. It was a time of great advancement from civil rights to a social revolution. Likewise, it was a great era for watching the changing fashions of wedding dresses.
The 1930s were an unusual period of history. The happiness that followed the end of the Great War came to an abrupt stop in October 1929. The Wall Street Crash culminated in The Great Depression and widespread fear over economics and finance. This ultimately led to the rise in favour of strict right-wing politics and, arguably, the Second World War.
