wedding dress you will wear will probably be much different from the
past, as it will be much different from the ones women will wear in the
future. For the late 18th

can be worn later in life. Since
women dresses are expensive and difficult to obtain, you will want to
have your dress designed in a way that can be worn again 50.
In order to be a fashionable lady of the late 18th
century, you can either wear a wedding dress that is white, silver, or
blue. At this time, all
three colors are common among brides. From the beginning of the
18th century to the end, the fashion style of a women's wedding dress
has not changed much. However,
it has been predicted that white will be the only popular color starting
sometime in the 19th century and will only be worn once.
In addition to color, your dress should have elbow-length sleeves
with falling cuffs, and have lots of pleats in the back of the dress 51.
