The Bride Did Not Wear White

$22.50

Model: Special collector's edition


Although white became the official wedding dress color during the Victorian era, not all brides chose to be married in it. Many could not afford a dress to be worn just once, and a white dress would be difficult to keep clean. This is a collection of real bridal gowns, from plain to fancy, in assorted colors, that became the young matron’s “best” dress later. One pretty bride doll and 8 gowns from 1835-1980, meticulously illustrated by Brenda Sneathen Mattox. Special collector's edition.
