Full on frou frou and a Victorian style revival governed bridal fashion in the 1980s. ‘Big’ became the key trend.  Big trains, veils, bouquets and tiaras as wondrously demonstrated at Diana Spencer’s wedding to Prince Charles. Weddings returned to a more formal affair with modest ceremonies and structured receptions.
