The most memorable event in many people’s lives is their wedding. It marks the start of a new family and a new home, sometimes far away from parents and in-laws. Wedding clothes for the bride and groom were frequently special occasion clothes that were either put away or used only for parties. Wedding dresses might be altered for a daughter or granddaughter.
