Question by stevel226: Would it be appropriate for a women to wear a wedding gown when?
My beloved and I are getting married in a few months. It's my 2nd and her 3rd marriage. It's going to be in a Judges chambers with maybe 10-12 guests. Recently my beloved decided she wanted to wear her old wedding dress. When I saw it I fell in love with it. Do you think it's appropriate to wear at a ceremony in a judges chamber? Will we get any funny looks?

I think it's great to wear the dress. You may get funny looks, but who cares. This day is for you and her.

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.
