1895 Antique Wedding Ensemble

This is an amazing auction that you just have to check out. It is an 1895 Antique Wedding Ensemble offered by mathomhouse . The auction includes everything in the photo - Wedding Dress, Headpiece with wax flowers & veil and Hat box, Corset, Slip, Bloomers, Stockings & garters, Shoes, Nightgown, Guest book and the Wedding Certificate. The auction has photos and details of each item. The bride's name was Myrtle (what a cool old fashioned name!) and it's amazing that all of Myrtle's wedding items have remained together for so long, and in such beautiful condition. It's one of those rare things that you would find in a museum.
It makes me wonder how things turned out for Myrtle. Obviously it was a beautiful wedding, was it a happy marriage? Did she marry a good man? How many children did they have? Where are her descendents now?

Wow! What an amazing auction and an equally amazing waist measurement! We have a wedding box that icludes, dress, shoes, favours, menus, pressed flowers and other trinkets from the day. My friend made my dress but to start with made up a mock wedding dress in calico to see if the design was going to work out ok. We had the mock frock on a mannequin at the reception and all the guests signed it and left messages in fabric pens. I wonder where it will all be in 100 years time? Lovely post Carol!
