Edwardian wedding dress for sale









This gorgeous Edwardian wedding dress is for sale by auction in Dorset - you can read the article here courtesy of the Daily Mail.

I can't believe that the owner- the grandaughter of the original bride - offered it to museums but was turned down. I wish she had offered it to me!

The size is so petite - less than a UK size 4, with a waist of 18 inch, and comes with a wax blossom headress, veil, stockings, shoes, and copies of the invitation and newspaper cutting.

So, if you would like to own this beautiful gown, leave a bid - good luck, as I think it might cost a pretty penny...

Have a good week!

  1. What an exquisite dress Carol!
    Like you I would love it too, but I know it would be way out of my reach!
    I would love the shoes and garland too.
    I'm astounded the museums turned it down - such an historical package.
