In the late 1700’s Royal weddings became the very popular events across the Europe and so it is believed that the preservation of the wedding gowns started on that year as well. Wedding dresses were embellished with jewels, laces and silk making the gowns more beautiful but not so ebullient in the preservation class. Silk rot has extremely damage the fabric especially that silk is delicately produces in the early days. And because of the sensitive nature of these fabrics, and the lack of understanding on proper preservation techniques, there was no wedding dresses preserved well enough for us enjoy looking at today.
Princess Charlotte’s wedding dress which is already closed to being 200 years old is the primeval wedding dress preserved. The dress lasted way longer that her marriage with Prince Leopold which is only 2 years, with the boundless efforts of the royal staff by keeping the dress dry and out of sunlight.
The UK Telegraph describes the dress as:
"It was made by Mrs Triaud of Bolton Street, from ‘cloth-of-silver’, silk bobbinet embroidered with heavy silver lamé, embellished with Brussels lace, and with embroidered flowers and shells festooning the hem."
