1500s to 1600s

In the 1500s to 1600s Europe started to venture to find America and Royalty started the trends of wedding gowns.

In 1944, we have Anne of Brittany married Louis XII of France and is the first official documented white-wearing bride. Four years later Margaret Tudor, the daughter of Henry VII, had a white damask gown edged with crimson. The crimson was added to the gown to show off the color of royalty. Later on in 1612, Princess Elizabeth was married in a silver dress embroidered with pearls, real silver, and precious stones.

Here we have Marie Adélaïde of Savory, Duchess of Burgundy in (1685-1712), ca 1710 where the soon to be bride wears a silver with a lace going throughout the bodice and gown.

At Anglo Couture, you could have your own beautiful gown Donatella with a silver vintage lace around your waist, so you can be the Royal Princess who becomes the Queen to your truly beloved.

Gown: Donatella
Material: Silk Charmouse and vintage inspired silver lace.

Book your appointment today by calling 727 536-5800 to get your princess gown.

History found in the knot's Book of Wedding Gowns. Further information found at as well as The Dream

History of Wedding Gowns

Have you ever wondered why we have certain traditions and where they came from? We decided to do some research on how wedding gowns have looked throughout our history.

Here is a photo by Theophile Robaudi called THE YOUNG BRIDE.
Here we see the classical pleated white robe with strings of pearls and a soft yellow veil. Pearls are the oldest known gem and a symbol of purity and perfection.

Ancient Times:

In Greece, they believed that the color white meant it was a time of celebration. So they wore white on their wedding day as an emblem of joy.

In Roman they would pay tribute to Hymen, the god of fertility and marriage, by wearing the color she most favored, white. The Brides' robe would normally be softly pleated white.

Both the Greeks and the Romans would wear flame-colored veils as a sign of modesty.

In Egypt, brides would drape layers of pleated white linen.

At Anglo Couture, we have been inspired by the beginning. Here are a few of our favorite Anglo Couture Gowns with a Greek Goddess look:

Gown: Amarylis
Material: Chiffon & Light Silk

Gown: Athena
Material: Chiffon & Light Silk

Stay tuned to how gowns changed in 1500s to 1600s.
