The cocoon dress, designed by Yves Saint Laurent in 1965,  is one of the most famous bridal couture creations in history. Some say it symbolized the oppressive nature of marriage in the 1960s, while others believe that its phallic shape and the way that it wraps and ties the female figure in ribbons tell a story about women on the verge of the sexual revolution.

#3. A Mixture of Frailties

I wish that we had more information for you about this wedding dress, but all we found was the image. Is it a wedding gown for a giant? A circus bride who walked down the aisle on stilts? We’re not sure, but we know it’s wild!

  1. It never ceases to amaze me what lengths people will take to be different — theses wedding dresses are the craziest thing I ever saw. What happened to a simply white dress?
