This is an old photo that was found in the museum. We have no idea who the fetching bride was. Her gown was very much in fashion in 1904.
The pigeon breast bodice of her gown makes her waist look smaller. The bride’s linen gown and train are embellished in Battenburg lace. She wears her hair upswept with a flower on the top of her head and a tulle bow at the back of her head. The high necked dress has fabric bows on the bodice and on the train. The bride wears a double strand of pearls and of course her new wedding ring.
If you are interested in wedding dresses throughout the years, I will be giving a digital photo presentation on August 8 at 12 Noon at the museum. I collect wedding dress photographs. I have photographs from 1880 to 1978. Almost 100 years of photographs to share. Bring a friend!
