Wedding Dress | c. 1933
Worn by Margaret Whigham, later the Duchess of Argyll, for her marriage to Mr Charles Sweeny in the Brompton Oratory, 21 February 1933. The dress took a team of 30 seamstresses six weeks to make, and the bride thought it shockingly expensive at £52.
” Matt and Julie married last week, and when the time came for the garter to be removed, Matt did something unexpected. As Julie sat in her chair, Matt approached her with a water basin and a towel. With perfect tenderness, he humbled himself and made a beautiful gesture of his service to her.”
You’re doing it right.
This is a MUCH better tradition than the removing of the garter. I always thought the garter thing was a bit… weird? This is beautiful.
Would definitely want to do this to my husband!
Oh my gosh I’d be bawling so hard.
My high standards just got a little higher.
