When we think of a wedding dress, we always have a fixed idea in our heads: pristine white, long, with a wide skirt and an eternal veil. However, this does not always have to be the case. Getting married is the perfect time to show exactly your personality. If you are boisterous and funny, a dress that reminds those of Andalusian gypsies is better. If you are calm and shy, do not think of inventing large necklines. The most important thing is that the dress reflects your style and way of being and feels beautiful in it. These wedding dresses, each one different from the other, show different trends in fashion, times, and the brides’ personalities. They all have something in common: they have been used by famous personalities, which is why they have been the target of many stars. Let’s check them all out! If you haven’t yet read the first, second, third and fourth parts of this blog, do it now!
