|Satin Wedding Gown, 1885|
The first Things to See post of the year is something for fashion and history lovers, as well as romantics of all ages (and quite possibly those in the throes of wedding organisation, too!) The Fashion Museum in Bath has planned a Valentines Day opening for its What Will She Wear? The Enduring Romance of the Wedding Dress display; an exhibition that will show off the museum's collection of wedding gowns through the ages. Curated to commemorate this year's Royal Wedding, What Will She Wear? will also incorporate a large collection of archive photographs of 1930s wedding dresses. It's sure to be a feast of silk, satin and lace; a frothy celebration of romance as well as style and the perfect antidote to the winter blues.
The exhibition will run from the 14th February 2011 until the 8th January 2012.
