It’s a little late but I thought I would celebrate the wedding of one of my dear friends by dedicating tomorrow to wedding gowns. I wish you two all the happiness and joy in the world.

Met: A rounded shoulderline that enhanced the length of the neck was prized through most of the nineteenth century. From the 1830s to the 1880s, it was accomplished by the lowered splayed stance of corset straps. The open neckline apparent in this wedding dress and the underbodice of this summer gown from the period suggests its romantic effect.
