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.
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 Victorian period was a time full of class, grace, elegance and romantic gestures – what better foundations to base a wedding around!
A historical wedding theme is a brilliant way of unifying your special day. Furthermore, it is sure to make the day more memorable for all of your guests. If you’re fascinated by history then a historically-themed wedding gives you the perfect excuse to do just that.
