A white wedding dress. Simple but extremely elegant, if I do say so.
OOC: It was Queen Victoria who popularized the white wedding dress.

Queen Victoria chose white not because it symbolized purity, but because  she wanted to show her people that she would run the country in an  economical way. White was a much less expensive color to make than the  colors typically popular for wedding dresses at the time (red, black,  and purple). Plus, it gave her the option of using some lace that she  already owned, rather than having something specially made.
So basically, the white dress was originally a political move.

Of course we should consider suitable wear for the occasion below so —— Pay Attention Steampunkers
The skirt base is the traditional 5 front gores and full back. The front has two swags, one high and one low on the skirt. The sides are trimmed with vertical ruches simulating a separate panel. The back can be made either bouffant or flat, with a very full train added. The closure is in the left side back seam. An optional pocket is in the right side seam.
Got It ??
