Wedding Fashion online database at the V&A
In the world of weddings, finding the right inspiration is the key to homing in on the details that will make your wedding unique.
If you’re looking for inspiration for your vintage wedding, look no further than the V&A museum’s online database of wedding fashions.
You can search weddings from the Victorian period up to the 21st century. You can also see wedding dresses from the V&A’s own fashion collections.
If you have family wedding photos in your family but have no idea of the date, why not browse the dress database to look for similar period dresses or weddings?
To add to this historical record, you can upload your own wedding photos or your family’s wedding photos, from 1840 to the present. The site currently has no wedding images from 1987, 1988 or 1989, so photos and wedding details from these years are particularly welcome.
