Wedding Dresses Through the Decades

Victorian Wedding Customs

Queen Victoria (1837-1901) wed Prince Albert in 1840, setting the stage for many of our traditional wedding ceremonies and receptions. Victorian brides would model their wedding-day glamour after the Queen.

Many volunteer hours went into the exquisite “Wedding Dresses Through The Decades” exhibit that was on display June and July featuring ten wedding gowns. A reception was held on the opening day of the exhibit, complete with wedding cake and nuts.
