This is a sketch of Queen Victoria's wedding gown. She changed the idea of a wedding gown forever. When she was married at 20 years old, she had a white gown and a veil. The dress was endlessly elegant. Before her influence, wedding dresses were made of heavy materials, burlap, and velvet. They came in numerous colors, white dresses were only seen in the summer when it was to wear anything else. She created the traditions of today.
