Antique Fashion Illustration for Crafts, Scrapbooking or Card Making: A Winter Bride 1 (Victorian Wedding)

“And down I went to fetch my bride:
But, Alice, you were ill at ease;
This dress and that by turns you tried,
Too fearful that you should not please.
I loved you better for your fears,
I knew you could not look but well;
And dews, that would have fall'n in tears,
I kiss'd away before they fell.”
― Alfred Tennyson

A fashion illustration from November 1886 that shows a Victorian bride getting dressed in her richly embellished wedding gown.
