Iconic Wedding Dresses: Mary of Teck

Queen Mary was engaged to Prince Albert, the eldest grandson of Queen Victoria. However, he died just weeks before their wedding. As a result, she instead married his brother, Prince George. Because of this, Mary of Teck had not one but two royal wedding dresses designed for her. Unfortunately, little remains of the plans for her first wedding dress, but her second remains iconic.

What if I want my wedding without a reception?

We know the story: ceremony, breakfast, evening reception, rinse and repeat. For couples looking to do something a little different, this structure can be somewhat restrictive. However, it doesn’t have to be like that. If you’re not too fussed about hosting a wedding reception or have absolutely no intention of going through the stress of planning one, you’ve come to the right place.
