Wedding gowns have had quite the transformation through the years, as has everything else in fashion. But it’s always surprising to see just how much fashion does evolve and change through time, and how each era offers something new. Wedding dresses in particular have been on quite the journey. From the 1920s Art Deco inspired gown to an overload of lace in the 30s and the pure simplicity in 2005; wedding dress style is ever changing.

If you’ve been dreaming of a vintage bridal style, this journey through the decades will inspire you towards a certain style that you might love. It’s the latest from MODE and we love it.

Though this video only covers the main trends that were spotted in the last 100 years, you can find further inspiration in our gorgeous galleries, whether you love simplicity, are looking for a beautiful long sleeved dress?or have a soft spot for backless dresses, we’ve got you covered.
