Marie Bernadette noticed the orange flowers too!
There is also the veil... the mention of a veil perhaps being worn which would mean that during this period the veil worn over the face had not yet become au rigor. Also, the use of wreaths. Wreaths were very popular. The use of jewelry... Was the tiara proper from a young unmarried lady during the Regency - such as worn for a ball? I've seen pictures but do we know for certain the that tiaras are being worn by an unmarried lady?
By the late 1800's the traditional color of white was obviously established though there is the girl who purchased the simple muslin...
Also, I noticed that it was often done to wear a heirloom dress... The fabrics were the same and it was traditional to where the old fashioned fabrics...
The flowers - other than the orange blossoms, of course, there was the fountain of flowers trailing down the front of the dress. This was also done during the Regency, along with the ribbons.
Does anyone know about what the bridegroom is expected to pay for?
