It’s one of the most famous royal wedding dresses of all but very hard to define. The gown worn by Queen Victoria on February 10th 1840 at St James’ Palace to marry her already beloved Albert is credited with making white weddings top of every stylish bride’s wish list but try and describe it and you might just come a cropper. Of course, there are no photos (well, possibly but that’s a whole other great big royal row) and many of the images we have are of the dress on mannequins in exhibitions. But it is a truly beautiful gown and a part of a royal story integral to the history of the British Monarchy. On the anniversary of that famous marriage, here’s a look at Queen Victoria’s wedding gown. Although I’m not a fan of wedding dresses I must say this lens is very unique and I commend you on sharing your opinion, I must admit, I could stop going back to look at these dresses. Good content. Great pictures. In the process of simplifying, I made an executive decision to only be open four days a week. That way I have more time to find treasures, photograph things for our Etsy shop and maintain some degree of sanity. Thank you for being so patient and supportive during the stressful remodel phase, I hope you find the result to have been worth the wait. I do NOT recommend buying boots and taking them to a cobbler to have them narrowed. I have tried this with three different cobblers and each time the boots were ruined. The seams came out lumpy and never looked or fit right. So far, I have lost over $1,000 attempting to do this and I will never do it again. If they don’t fit, don’t buy them. Con dresses are known as bar dresses and are very tight. For evening wear, they can be very attractive and tend to tuck a woman in very well. These dresses are very revealing, though, and do tend appeal to women in their twenties. shea duane – I highly recommend making it happen. You won’t regret it. Thanks for commenting. I demand that you find better resources next time. Ones with better pictures of lace close ups! Heavy silk crepe, wool crepe or wool voile are suitable for this one-piece slip-over dress with tiers, a casing and elastic, etc. The Costumes in The Duchess all capture the opulence of 18th century English nobility but it was the gold tone wedding dress that Georgiana wears for a brief moment that was used for the film’s promotion. Its rich gold tone, stunning embellishments and hip petticoat makes it very memorable and beautiful.

Shoes and stockings became the focus of more attention as fashion items once their visibility increased due to raised hemlines on dresses.
