Believe it or not, the wedding dress hasn´t always been as popular as it is now and it certainly hasn´t looked the way it does now. If you’re a lover of vintage or retro looks you´ll know something about the drastic changes the bridal gown has undergone. Throughout the twentieth century, starting from the Victorian era of the late nineteenth century, the wedding dress has changed almost every decade.

In the gallery above we go from the flappers and style 20s style of Coco Chanel to the wonderful rockabilly 50s and the shocking (at the time) 60s mini dress, and finally ending in 2000! What decade do you prefer?
