I Tried Wedding Dresses Through History
Safiya Nygaard
Hello friends! So as some of you may know, I am engaged, betrothed, and affianced - and so I hereby introduce you to part 1 of our 4 part wedding video series! Being the fashion history enthusiast that I am, I decided to do a little exploration into wedding dresses through history and try on 5 authentic vintage wedding dresses (with era-appropriate hairstyling, makeup, and bouquets to boot!) - ranging from the Victorian Era to the 1980s! Which look was your favorite?

    I don't know what to say about the 1980 look. But I really like the bouquet the most.

    It looks great on raquelle but it's okay for you.

    I'm not trying to hate but. There are so many things wrong about the 1960 look. The only think I like is the make up and pink flower bouquet.

  • Reina Thao

    Pffft how does the 1960 dress count as a wedding dress. O honey the hair! the big hair has to go!

    I just want to point out that a "2010's frame" isn't really a thing... Throughout history, women had different sizes, from very skinny and petite to larger or taller silhouettes. Oftentimes, we tend to believe that all women were skinnier at the time, but here are a couple of things to consider: - Malnourishment: many women were skinny not because their bodies were different from ours, but because they just hadn't enough to eat... - Undergarments and dress-making : Though she looks gorgeous, Safiya isn't wearing a historically accurate 1890's gown, obviously. At the time, it could even have been constructed from several pieces, like a skirt, a bodice and a train. And we mustn't forget the all important undergarments! A chemise and drawers or a pair of combinations, a corset, a corset cover, a bustle pad and at least one petticoat. The corset and the pad were what created the silhouette! The corset was never a torture device: almost no one laced it tightly, it was used for support, like a modern day bra, and merely moved the belly fat around to create the fashionable shape, without having to squish you uncomfortably. You can see in the video that Safiya doesn't achieve the 1890's silhouette with just the gown. That is because Victorians andEdwardians were masters of disguise and proportion. The corset reduces your waist, but the illusion is enhanced by the bustle pad and some cunning padding in the chest and shoulders area. So it's not a problem of not having the right body, it's just that obviously Safiya didn't have the time/budget/whatever to construct an accurate look! And I totally respect that, she also had 4 other looks to do! - The last reason is media and representation: on the fashion plates and in the fashion pictures of the era, you just don't see larger women. They advertise the clothing and fashionable silhouettes with skinny models, because that's what people at the time wanted to see. Nowadays we have plus size models, but we have come a long way! So hey were out there, but just not represented... Please note that I'm not trying to roast or belittle the work that Safiya has done, she is wonderful, looks gorgeous and is one of the few youtubers who do a great job at fashion history when it's not their entire channel! I am just bringing more info and trying to bust some myths...

    It's also curious that in spanish, "handcuffs" is "esposas" (Wives). This fashion videos should also have the men's version of them, because it also changed, not as drasticaly as women's, but still a lot to make it interesting.

    As much as I love the effort put into this video, I do wish that Saf had the proper undergarments for the dresses... the Victorian gown would have looked so good with a stay or corset...

    The concept of 1940s wedding dresses being designed for speed is so adorable.

  • David Kirk

    Gay reacts: Number 1 - Gorgeous. God that material looks good but uncomfortable before the age of air conditioning. Austerity and extravagance make oddly easy friends. Number 2 - It's amazing that so much less can be so much more dynamic. Gloria Swanson once received an alarmingly large bouquet of orchids, which you would think she would love. Apparently she felt it was putting too much cash and ostentation into something she preferred to be intimate and simple. A similar concept as this bouquet exists in the Texas tradition of mums, gigantic and hugely expensive bouquets given to girls by their prom date. Number 3 - We always think of red lips as an eternal fixture in a woman's appearance, especially if you're not a woman yourself. I think it's interesting that roughly 1 in 10 women are not reporting that they wear lipstick with whatever frequency that survey indicated. I have to wonder how other shades might have embedded themselves in our culture. The most obvious lip reference to me is Salvador Dali's Mae West room, which has a lip sofa that *feels* incredibly vivid, but was actually a bit muted. Number 4 - This is the woman that tried to take down Lady Bunny with a broken hat rack in '62, miss Crystal Labeija herself. Hot off the set with Dick Cavett. The use of texture actually kind of takes me back to Number 1. I love the 'tude of your stylist. Number 5 - Holy cow those lilies. Like holding fire. On board with the rhinestones. Probably the most outstanding feature to be was the presence of "retro". I'm left wondering when retro became mainstream. I definitely heard people use the term a lot more in the 90's which, looking back was used in reference to people observing styles that were about as far back as my own adolescence is now. I have to wonder how many retro faux pas were really just people that weren't washed ashore into the present day and hung out on 70's island. At the tiki bar.

    I love how she looked good but the corset would've made then 1890's dress 100× better since her natural silhouette is seemingly kinda 1920's not very curvy like the 1890's or 19th century in general

    Wow the 40s dress really suits you. So pretty. I bought a dress like the 80s dress in 1999 for my wedding at 200 😝it looked alright on me though, I couldn’t breathe 😳

  • KitKat

    DUDE! The dress my Nana (great grandma) wore to my parents wedding looks a lot like the 40's dress! also, my family is really major in the dance world and one of the west coast swing champions, a guy named Ben Morris (he's an amazing dancer and all around great guy), used to do lindy and I gotta say, it's looks both really cool and very tiring the one time I watched him do it in person. so unless you've got a lot of stamina and strong legs for bouncing around I wouldn't recommend it XD!

    I tried to make the same kind of 1920's headpiece from a coat hanger and layers of satin mod-podged onto the frame. It was soooooo heavy. If y'all are considering it, cut the shape out of heavy interfacing fabric and then cover it with fabric and attach it to a headband or combs.
