Hello friends! So as some of you may know, I am engaged, betrothed, and affianced - and so I hereby introduce you to part 1 of our 4 part wedding video series! Being the fashion history enthusiast that I am, I decided to do a little exploration into wedding dresses through history and try on 5 authentic vintage wedding dresses (with era-appropriate hairstyling, makeup, and bouquets to boot!) - ranging from the Victorian Era to the 1980s! Which look was your favorite?

I'm writing an essay about how current events in history affected women's fashion. I get to watch Saf's fashion history videos as a bit of studying :)))

the roarin 20s turned into the roni 20s lmao
As much as I love the effort put into this video, I do wish that Saf had the proper undergarments for the dresses... the Victorian gown would have looked so good with a stay or corset...

Y'all discussing your mothers insane dresses and then there is my mom who got married in early 2000s with an a-line white/ ivory dress.

The concept of 1940s wedding dresses being designed for speed is so adorable.

Gay reacts: Number 1 - Gorgeous. God that material looks good but uncomfortable before the age of air conditioning. Austerity and extravagance make oddly easy friends. Number 2 - It's amazing that so much less can be so much more dynamic. Gloria Swanson once received an alarmingly large bouquet of orchids, which you would think she would love. Apparently she felt it was putting too much cash and ostentation into something she preferred to be intimate and simple. A similar concept as this bouquet exists in the Texas tradition of mums, gigantic and hugely expensive bouquets given to girls by their prom date. Number 3 - We always think of red lips as an eternal fixture in a woman's appearance, especially if you're not a woman yourself. I think it's interesting that roughly 1 in 10 women are not reporting that they wear lipstick with whatever frequency that survey indicated. I have to wonder how other shades might have embedded themselves in our culture. The most obvious lip reference to me is Salvador Dali's Mae West room, which has a lip sofa that *feels* incredibly vivid, but was actually a bit muted. Number 4 - This is the woman that tried to take down Lady Bunny with a broken hat rack in '62, miss Crystal Labeija herself. Hot off the set with Dick Cavett. The use of texture actually kind of takes me back to Number 1. I love the 'tude of your stylist. Number 5 - Holy cow those lilies. Like holding fire. On board with the rhinestones. Probably the most outstanding feature to be was the presence of "retro". I'm left wondering when retro became mainstream. I definitely heard people use the term a lot more in the 90's which, looking back was used in reference to people observing styles that were about as far back as my own adolescence is now. I have to wonder how many retro faux pas were really just people that weren't washed ashore into the present day and hung out on 70's island. At the tiki bar.

I love how she looked good but the corset would've made then 1890's dress 100× better since her natural silhouette is seemingly kinda 1920's not very curvy like the 1890's or 19th century in general

Wow the 40s dress really suits you. So pretty. I bought a dress like the 80s dress in 1999 for my wedding at 200 😝it looked alright on me though, I couldn’t breathe 😳

DUDE! The dress my Nana (great grandma) wore to my parents wedding looks a lot like the 40's dress! also, my family is really major in the dance world and one of the west coast swing champions, a guy named Ben Morris (he's an amazing dancer and all around great guy), used to do lindy and I gotta say, it's looks both really cool and very tiring the one time I watched him do it in person. so unless you've got a lot of stamina and strong legs for bouncing around I wouldn't recommend it XD!

The 1890 dress must've been the dress Clara Clayton wore when she married Doc Brown.

Loved this video!! I got married in 1985 & yup I had the head piece with beads hanging. I was a bridesmaid in my brother's wedding in 1984 & we had the lace front & the big mutton sleeves!! Wow!!

.I have to say, 80s wedding dresses usually just make me laugh, but..it actually looks pretty darn good on you?! The shape is bangin' and the whole "head dress" situation? Yup, cool. Just cool!

I would’ve loved to see you in an 1830s wedding dress with the big poofy sleeves and wide skirt🖤

I tried to make the same kind of 1920's headpiece from a coat hanger and layers of satin mod-podged onto the frame. It was soooooo heavy. If y'all are considering it, cut the shape out of heavy interfacing fabric and then cover it with fabric and attach it to a headband or combs.

I really wish Saf had done a dress from the 70s. Disco era dresses were probably AMAZING. I'll have to ask my mum.

Anybody else get that vibe from the 1940's dress where you thought: Safiya looks like Peggy from Captain America. (The girl he likes and eventually went back to marry in End Game).

The 40s is my favorite 😍😍
The 1920's make-up looks good

Another reason women wore red lipstick in the 40’s is because hitler reportedly hated it
