40 Wonderful Portraits of Victorian Couples on Their Wedding Days

The wedding day was considered to be the most important day in the life of a Victorian girl. The girls were taught from the early age to marry and to take care of the family. The marriage of a girl was something very special for the mother, the soon to be bride and her family.

Victorian weddings were more or less similar to the wedding celebrations we have today. Many traditions of Victorian weddings are still being followed and one of them is the color and style of the wedding attire.

The wedding dress of the Victorian era had a fitted bodice with a small waist and long skirt. It was made of organdie, silk, linen, lace, gauze, tulle and cashmere.

The wedding was also very important for the grooms and they were also concerned with fashion. The Victorian groom often wore a frock coat made of blue color with best flower favor in his lapel.
