This exhibition and published book offers the trends and fashions from 1775 to the present day.  It touches on the people who’s lives have brought these stories to bring the wedding dress to life.  This quote made me smile about a dress a bride has lent to the exhibition and worn said “I had the right dress but the wrong man.” What ever you think or have discovered about marriage this exhibition completely celebrates the history and the background of the wedding dress 1775-2014.
