I'm continuing the topic of the wedding dress exhibition that was on recently at RipponLea, a National Trust house and garden in Melbourne, Australia. The first part of the blog is here.
On the right is my favorite of all the dresses, a gracefully falling peau de soie silk dress embroidered with beads and diamentes and worn by a Melbourne bride, Jeannie Corlett in 1957.
On the left is my second favorite, a beautifully draped dress that almost looks like a modern day lingerie set. It's a gorgeous silk satin, tulle, chiffon and lace dress that was worn by Nancy Sargood on her wedding day in 1915. (Click on any of the pictures for a larger view.)
