Miss Jean Vass wore this cream silk wedding dress when she married Mr Benjamin Moodie. The wedding took place at 3 o'clock, on Wednesday the 28th of January 1920, in the Menzies Rooms, Musselburgh.
This is a one piece, cream silk wedding dress. It was handmade with gold embroidered detail round bodice and wrists, ribbon detail round waistband, gathered into loops at the sides, 'arrow' shaped embroidered detail on bodice, two layered 3/4 length skirt.
In the 1920s, ladies wedding dresses reflected the fashions of the day. Nowadays it is common for a bride to choose a dress in an older traditional style.
