Period drama costumes are a feast for the eyes. Period Drama Wedding dresses are particularly awe-inspiring. They are a reflection of the trends and elegance of the time period they were created. Many a modern bride has modeled her gown after a movie or television show. Because there are so many stunning wedding gowns, I decided to make this list a small series. I’ve started with the 18th Century and earlier. From Marie Antoinette’s elaborate gown to Demelza’s simple garb, wedding dress style varied during this time. Gowns from the renaissance and medieval period were also amazing. The wedding gowns on this list are a mix of time periods and styles from great period dramas.
