Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. A popular style of wedding dress chosen by many brides is off the shoulder with a fitted bodice. It can include which style of neckline shown in the image?

Answer: Sweetheart neck

Wedding dresses worn by brides in western culture are traditionally white, but some prefer off-white or ivory, all depending on skin tone. Dress styles can differ and can include A-line, princess, empire line, ballerina, or mermaid. The material is usually satin, silk and/or lace. Sleeve length, shoulder and neck styles, and whether there are any adornments such as sequins and beads can also affect the bride's choice.

The sweetheart neckline shown in the image is two curves over the bust area which meets in a dip in the middle, making it look like the silhouette of a heart.
2. French lace is renowned throughout the world for its delicate and intricate design. Which of these is a type of lace used to make bridal veils?

Answer: Chantilly

The many types of French lace can include Chantilly, Alencon, Bayeux and Cluny, all of which were named after regions in France where the designs were created. Chantilly lace dates back as far as the 17th century where silk threads were traditionally used instead of today's cotton.

In today's market, lace is made in bulk by using factory machines, but intricate lace designs with flowers and fine webbing, including Chantilly, are still hand-made by using a bobbin. Modern veils are made using cotton or a synthetic thread, and come in a variety of lengths including shoulder length, elbow length, finger-tip length and the full cathedral length.
3. Many hairstyles can enhance a bride's natural beauty, but which style is in the image shown?

Answer: French braid

Bridal hairstyles depend on the bride, her style of dress, the length of her hair, and any accessories she uses to adorn her head. A French braid differs to a normal braid as the tresses are braided into the hair, instead of under the hair. The full term used to describe the hairstyle shown in the image is a 'side French braid up-do'.

The beehive is a hair style reminiscent from the 1960s. A chignon is a knot of hair which is worn at the nape of the neck. The Rachel is the name given to the hairstyle made popular by Jennifer Anniston when she took on the role of Rachel Green in the hit TV series "Friends".
4. What name can be given as an alternative to the sparkling hand crafted tiara, often popular as a bridal adornment?

Answer: Diadem

Kings from Ancient Greece often wore a diadem made from metal with silk ribbons attached. The diadem used in today's wedding is more commonly called a tiara. A crown or coronet is usually a full circle surrounding the top of the head, whereas a tiara or diadem only covers half.

A wedding diadem is handcrafted out of glass beads, pearls, silk flowers and even jewelry. At the time of writing this quiz, the most expensive tiara in the world sold at Sotheby's in 2011 for a whopping 11.28 million Swiss francs to an anonymous bidder.

The tiara of Eugenie, wife of Napoleon III, was constructed from emeralds and diamonds, weighing approximately 500 carats in total.
5. Some brides prefer to turn their back on expensive traditional weddings and opt for something more informal. What fashion style would a bride choose if they wore a floral hair crown?

Answer: Boho chic

Boho chic, or Bohemian chic, is a style of fashion which became trendy during the 2000s, although certain elements date back to the 1960s. Flower power, hippie, vintage and bohemian are all words synonymous with boho chic. Clothing is normally made from natural colours and materials, and can include floaty skirts, crochet tops and floral head-wreaths. Celebrities who have had a boho chic themed wedding include the model Kate Moss and actress Keira Knightley.
6. Standard bridal headgear usually consists of a tiara and veil, but some brides opt for which type of lightweight head covering instead?

Answer: Fascinator

The fascinator dates back to the 19th century when women used a fine knitted head covering called a 'cloud'. It lost its popularity but then re-emerged during the latter part of the 20th century, different in style, but still used as an alternative to wearing a hat.

The base of a fascinator is a comb or headband, which is then decorated with lace, feathers, silk flowers and/or beads. It is a popular choice for the more modern bride who want to wear a head covering without the full works. A hatinator is also becoming popular as it combines the features of a hat and a fascinator.
7. Which jewelry is part of a bride's accessory and is often symbolised by purity and innocence?

Answer: Pearl

A wedding tradition which is slowly becoming lost is for the bride's mother or grandmother to loan the bride their necklace and earring set for the day. The set would normally consist of pearls or diamonds, or even both. The timeless classics were family heirlooms that were worn to symbolise a bride's growth from young girl into adulthood.

In some cultures, pearls were supposed to represent the tears of angels, but other cultures including the Greeks regarded them highly due to their beauty and often associated them with love and marriage.
8. Which type of floral bouquet is round in shape and can be held by the bride in one hand?

Answer: Posy bouquet

It is very difficult for the bride to choose between the many array of flowers and styles for her wedding bouquet. A posy of flowers can come in many small sizes but is always designed so the bride can hold it in one hand. They are spherical in shape and either tightly constructed of flowers, or more loosely informal, all depending on which the bride prefers.

The fountain, or shower bouquet, is a much larger display with trailing flowers and leaves. The composite bouquet is very modern with hundreds of individual petals attached together to make them look like one large flower.

As the same suggests, the wrist corsage is a small floral display that is attached to the wrist by a band or ribbon. They tend to be used more by bridesmaids than brides.
9. Brides often spend most of their wedding day on their feet so it is no wonder they buy quality shoes. Which of these is NOT primarily a famous shoe designer?

Answer: Vera Wang

The image shown is that of a shoe designed by Malaysian born Jimmy Choo. He learnt his skills from his father, who was also a cobbler, in designing hand made shoes for women. Christian Louboutin is a French shoe designer who incorporates a red shiny sole into all of his designs. Manolo Blahnik is a Spanish shoe designer.

His love for creating shoes started when he was a young boy when he used to make shoes for lizards out of sweet wrappers. He has since incorporated the lizard skin detail into his shoes. Former American figure skater Vera Wang is known internationally for her fashion designs, especially wedding dresses and also her bridal boutique.
10. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue. Wedding fashion has changed throughout the years, but one piece of hosiery has remained constant more than others. What is it?

Answer: Garter

There are many traditions associated with weddings and these include the common phrase "Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue", which possibly dates back to 19th century England. At the end of the wedding, the bride throws her bouquet and according to lore, the first unwed female who catches it is the next in line to get married.

In similar style, it is traditional for the bridal garter to be removed by the groom and thrown at all the unmarried men in the wedding party.

A garter containing the colour blue is said to represent purity and fidelity.
