Cue “The Suite” by the Chamber Orchestra of London as we find wedding inspiration of the early 1900’s.
Those who loathe Lady Mary’s dreadful decisions are at the same time enraptured in her love for Matthew. Amid tales of love, scandal and perfectly placed china, the Downton Abbey effect is much like the Real Housewives, but with proper etiquette and poise.
While most wedding details were not seen in the long awaited walk down the aisle, Lady Mary’s attire was not missed. Consider these looks inspired by the Edwardian Era to set the tone for your long awaited nuptials.
