Since 1900, there have been a few unchanging features of the Western wedding dress. White gowns have generally been favored (though historically, that wasn’t always true), longer dresses have remained in style and bridal veils have endured as a popular accessory.

But as with all fashion, wedding dresses evolved, adapting to the trends of the day.

In the video above, watch as Mode explores “100 Years of Wedding Gowns,” starting with a high-collared, lacy number from the 1910s and ending with a form-fitting, embellished gown from 2015.

Earlier this year, an infographic highlighting popular wedding dress styles went viral. The graphic, created by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, also detailed the shifts in bridal fashion from the 1900s to the 2010s. See it here.
