The Wedding Dress
Learn about the tradition of the bridal veil, the white dress, and much more. Hear about after-parties, pranks, horseshoes, and many other traditions that can be part of the wedding. There are white dresses with trains, short dresses, long dresses, red dresses, and green dresses. There are Lilly models, the latest from TP dresses from 2023, homemade and hand-sewn dresses, and recycled dresses from earlier times. There are lace, ruffles, and silk.
The dresses and stories show how the idea of the perfect wedding and the perfect dress varies from couple to couple, from simple to grand, and how fashion has changed over the years.
