9 Wedding Dress Fun Facts You May Not Know

It's no big surprise that we love learning everything that there is to know about wedding dresses at our South Florida Bridal Salon. When you are surrounded by so many gorgeous gowns every day, it's an easy topic to talk about. There are lots and lots of fun facts out there, and today Angelus Bridal & Formals has 9 to share that may be news to you. 

1. Wedding magazines are still something you are bound to find somewhere in the home of a newly engaged woman, but it is no longer the first place to turn for researching the perfect wedding dress. Today, over half of the future brides look for gowns online, beginning with sites like Pinterest for inspiration. Of course, there is no substitute for making an appointment and trying your favorites on.  

2. Veils add beauty to any wedding gown, but did you know that they originally were worn to serve a purpose? Greek and Roman brides wore veils to keep evil spirits at bay. Back in the day of arranged marriages, veils hid the bride from her future groom until after the ceremony to avoid any second thoughts. 

3. If you fall in love with more than one dress, it is perfectly acceptable, and lots of fun, to make a wardrobe change during the evenings festivities. About 20% of brides wear a completely new dress for dancing at the reception. Another option to switch up your look a bit is to simply change your headpiece or jewelry to reinvent your ceremony look. 

4. It can be difficult to find undergarments that are both comfortable and still do their job under some wedding dresses. Not only do we carry the perfect one here, but our owner created it! Angelus Bridal's very own Coco Abadi saw a need for a better bra in the industry, leading him to patent the Flattering Me Bra. It offers real support, natural cleavage, and most importantly, comfort. 

5. A bride is free to wear any color bridal gown that she wants to on her wedding day, but white still seems to be the number one choice. This color became traditional in 1840 when Queen Victoria got married in white. Before then, women simply wore their best dress, which rarely was white.

6. When Grace Kelly became a princess by marrying Prince Rainier of Monaco in 1956, she wore a bridal gown made with 125-year-old lace. 

7. In India, women wear gowns in bright colors like red, which are often covered with intricate designs and details. Rather than veils, they wear saris to cover their heads.

8. If you are afraid of spiders, be brave if you see one on your wedding day. It is said to bring good luck when its found on your wedding dress. 

9. The most expensive bridal gown was designed by Renee Strauss and master jeweler Martin Katz and covered in 150 carats of diamonds! The price tag on it was $12 million. Our Pompano Beach wedding dress store is filled with the finest and most trendy wedding fashions, all made with top quality fabrics and materials, but available the the lowest possible prices.
