London’s famed Victoria and Albert Museum boasts 3000 years’ worth of art and design including ceramics, furniture, fashion, jewelery, metalwork, photography, sculpture, textiles and paintings, and now they are working on a 2011 exhibit of the history of wedding fashion! Leading up to it’s debut they are developing a database of images featuring the clothing worn at weddings in all cultures from 1840 until today. Already the images online (organized by time period) are fascinating to look through, and you can help make it even better. Visit their website to learn more about what they’re looking for (and be sure to check with your photographer to get copyright permission) and then upload images from your very own wedding or the weddings of your family members back to the Victorian period. What a fantastic way to become part of wedding history!
