Fashion History Museum: 200 Years of Wedding Attire

June 4, 2015 | The Wedding Ring had the pleasure of visiting the Summer launch of The Fashion History Museum‘s “Tying the Knot: 200 years of Wedding Attire” exhibit, complete with cake from The Baking Company and flowers courtesy of From the Potting Shed.

This exhibition of 34 wedding garments ranges from a dress worn in Quebec City in 1816 (the museum’s oldest Canadian dress with provenance) to a hand loomed silk suit worn in Ottawa in 1991.

Visit the exhibition running from June-December. Be sure to keep an eye out as they will be changing over the display in September 🙂

Which one will be your favourite?
