European Royal Wedding, 1927

European Royal Wedding, 1927, originally uploaded by Gatochy.

"A 1927 wedding joins members of the French and Italian royal families. The bride's simple wedding dress is short and cut on the hip, following the style of the day. A long train with scalloped or pearl-trimmed edges is typical of 1927 bridalwear, and the veil may have been pinned to the hair under wax flowers. Dresses were often pale pink or cream."
