The newest exhibition to hit London’s remarkable V&A museum is the simply named but stunningly showcased, Wedding Dresses. From little-girl, fairytale dreams to big-girl big days this is a perfect presentation of gorgeous gowns through their generations.

V&A Wedding Dresses

The exhibition shows wedding gowns from 1775-2014; originating with the traditional white number, representing virginity and purity, and transcending through to today’s, perhaps, distorted marital designs, representing, erm, more modern approaches to marriage?

Displaying dresses worn by not only historical figures but Dita Von Teese and Gwen Stefani, the V&A will once again whisk you away on a fashion frenzy and better still, to a wedding wonderland.

‘This exhibition will trace the development of the fashionable white wedding dress and its treatment by key fashion designers such as Charles Frederick Worth, Norman Hartnell, Charles James, John Galliano, Christian Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood and Vera Wang offering a panorama of fashion over the last two centuries.’ V&A

The exhibition opens this weekend and tickets are already selling in their droves. But don’t fear, ladies, Wedding Dresses is at the V&A museum from 3rd May 2014 to 15th March 2015 so plenty of time to see it.

We recommend for any of you blushing brides-to-be, grab your bridesmaids for the day and coo and woo over these fabulous frocks. The rest of us Janes can coo and woo and carry on dreaming…ahhhh…
