A Walk Down the Aisle! Historic Wedding Dresses Exhibition – Hedon Museum

A Walk Down the Aisle! Prepare to be enchanted!

Hedon Museum is holding an exhibition of wedding dresses, dating from the 1890s to the 1990s. Lace, silks and satins will certainly put you in a fairy tale mood. Also on display will be wedding photographs, on loan from the museum’s volunteers.

People have looked forward to their wedding days for thousands of years, but it was Queen Victoria who cemented the idea of the ‘white wedding’ which has since endured. At the time, many different colours were used for bride’s wedding dresses, including white, depending upon the personal taste of the bride and the money the family could afford to spend. However, since that happy royal day, it has become expected for a bride to wear white (although these ideas are now changing for modern brides). – Katy Miller, Media Officer.

Free Admission. Wednesdays and Saturdays, 10am – 4pm, from Wednesday 17th July – Saturday 7th September 2019. Refreshments available. Pre-loved books for sale.
