Bridal Exhibition: The White Wedding Dress

What's in a dress?… For centuries, a bride's wedding gown has been one of the most sentimental features of her special day, and today, many a-bride will tell you that finding 'the one' (the gown I mean!) is a mammoth task not to be underestimated! 

But how and why did the traditional white wedding gown come to be the garment of choice for thousands of brides throughout the world? How did a simple white dress become such a sacred symbol of the bond between man and wife? If you've ever wondered about this, then you must make a trip to the Bendigo Art Gallery, and visit The White Wedding Dress.
The White Wedding Dress presents the most romantic, glamorous and extravagant wedding dresses from the Victoria & Albert Museum’s superb collection. The exhibition highlights the histories of the dresses, and reveals fascinating details about the lives of the wearers, offering insights into their circumstances and fashion choices. The exhibition asks why and how the white dress came to be such an iconic garment for brides the world over. 

The exhibition will also feature wedding gowns by celebrated designers, including Vera Wang, Dior, Galliano, Lacroix, Vivienne Westwood and Lanvin, as well as gowns from fabulous Australian designers. Also on display will be the wedding gowns of Dita Von Tesse and Gwen Stefani.
