Renaissance Wedding Gown Gallery
Colours were chosen for various reasons, and one can be certain they were often chosen to flatter the bride. The style of a renaissance wedding gown itself would be whatever was current.
Colours for wedding gowns were some times chosen to compliment the "house" colours of a particular noble groom, practice that occurred particularly during the Italian renaissance. House colours typically coordinated with the heraldic coat of arms of noble family. Wearing the house colours would be a symbolic offer towards the bride to her husband, her gown showing that she would now become part of his house.
White in fact, was not a particularly popular colour until Queen Victoria wore a white gown to her own wedding.
There are recorded occasions where the guests at weddings were given clothing as gifts, sometimes the gowns were all of the same colours. One can only guess that "dad" had gotten a very good deal on fabric as long as he bought the same colour.
This is the sword cloak gallery. If you would like to inquire about having a custom renaissance sword cloak made for you please call us or email. We are happy to tailor to your exact specifications.

Working with Renaissance and Period Wedding Gowns and the Brides
We do put our hearts and souls into these gowns. We understand just how important it is to have the perfect renaissance wedding gown. We will do our best during consultation to explain why certain styles and fabrics are good choices after hearing the details of the wedding. However we are happy to make the wedding gown styled the way you want. A custom wedding gown should be just as the bride wants it.
We want you to have a gown that will be comfortable for the duration of the ceremony and the reception. A renaissance wedding gown should be put on, and not have to be adjusted over and over again.
