History is not the only thing that keeps repeating. Fashion does too. There has been a lot of major comeback of the old trends in the way we dress up, including our wedding styles as well. Pin-up from the 50’s, boho from the 70’s and glitter from the post-WWI era in wedding dresses are some of the old-fashioned-turned-new trends these days. Believe it or not, most of our wedding dress styles are influenced by historical fashion, even from ancient times!
