Why We Love This

From the romance of its evolution to the splendor of its design, the wedding dress is unlike any other garment, a talisman from a fantasy world, the manifestation of dreams coming true. This book draws on wedding garments in the Victoria and Albert Museum’s renowned collection along with photographs, letters, memoirs, and newspaper accounts to explore the history of the white wedding dress and the traditions that have developed around it from 1700 to today. Paintings, drawings, and wedding photos depict queens, princesses, celebrities, and everyday women in their gowns; the text considers the dress in the context of the commercialization of weddings that began in the Victorian era.
