Well this is a group photo to begin a month long series of wedding photographs. What better month to do that in than June. I was not married in June, but both of my daughters were.
Wedding dresses were often black or dark colors from the years 1880 to 1900. Many women chose a dark colored dress, it could be worn again, and it wouldn’t show the dirt. She may wear a special wedding bonnet (headpiece and veil) as a keepsake of her special day, but her dress was practical. I read someplace that she would wear the dress for special occasions and gatherings throughout the first year, just so all her friends could see it again.
I have had a blast collecting all these old wedding photos, I have more than plenty for the month of June, with a few left over. This photo came from the Antique Shop in Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. I think it may be from around 1900.
Thanks for stopping by, do come again:)
