I went to see the “Wedding Dresses 1775-2014” exhibition at the Victoria&Albert Museum last week with my good friend Lindha. We both really liked the downstairs, where there were older pieces, newspaper clippings and footage. There were some great accessories using orange blossoms…small bouquets, wreaths, tiaras. Some dresses were made of muslin, which was really pretty. There were lots of beautiful embroideries ( even on garters in good ol’ 1848) and English lace (!). For example Queen Victoria’s veil had lace made in Honiton, Devon. There was a black&white film projected on the wall with different types of wedding material for example, veil styles from the 1920s — which was stunning!!!
