There are so many traditions that many of us adhere to when marrying. The royal family has a lot of expectations on their weddings, too. But, did you know that a lot of these started with the wedding of Queen Victoria to Prince Albert?
The 1930s were an unusual period of history. The happiness that followed the end of the Great War came to an abrupt stop in October 1929.

Married eight times to seven different men, Elizabeth Taylor wore plenty of wedding dresses in her lifetime. However, she adorned wedding gowns before this, most notably in the film Father of the Bride.
