Throughout history, brides have wanted to look special on their wedding day. Usually, what they wear is representative of women's clothing at the time, and as times change, so do the fashions. Bridal fashions are no exception. Living history expert Kathleen York examines the bridal fashions of early twentieth-century America in this colorful book that looks at wedding gowns, bridesmaids' gowns, and bridal accessories from the Edwardian era through World War II. With a particular focus on what everyday gals wore for their weddings, American Bridal Fashion explores the historical events and popular attitudes of five key decades and examines how they translated into women's clothing and bridal fashions. York looks at the evolution of bridal fashion, from curvy, corseted Gibson Girls to jazzy, boyish Flappers and from the penny-pinching weddings during the Great Depression to the basic, rationed wedding dresses worn during World War II. Charming photographs and illustrations detail the dresses and accessories worn by women of the early 1900s on one of the happiest days of their lives.

From homespun to haute couture, the dresses worn by American brides in the first half of the twentieth century had myriad influences. In "Bridal Fashion 1900-1950", living-history expert Kathleen York takes readers on an elegant journey back in time, marking the changes that economics, popular culture, and even politics have made to style over the years. Both brides-to-be looking for inspiration and nostalgia-seekers will enjoy this lavishly illustrated tour of an era that saw the average wedding evolve from a simple affair for a few family members into a dazzling, and often expensive, gala for hundreds of guests.
