White wedding gowns are synonymous with tradition these days–but did you know that first white wedding gown was actually considered rebellious? In 1840, Queen Victoria choose to wed in a white dress even though brides back then were expected to wear their best gown for the wedding, typically, a heavy silk satin dress in a bright, bold color. Queen Victoria’s sartorial rebellion was so iconic that almost 200 years later, brides are still emulating the look.

White is eye-catching for sure; but you know what’s more eye-catching? Sequins. Depending on how you style them, sequins can seem ultra-glam or rocker-chic. Shop the look.
