Time Out Melbourne

This event has finished

Here come the brides, dresses and tales of weddings past

Explore the history, tradition and social narrative of weddings. Not only will you encounter wedding dresses worn by celebrities by fashion labels Valentino, Maticevski and Akira, but the exhibition will also take you back centuries to uncover how weddings have evolved. Suitably, the atmosphere is one of music, flowers and nibbles – making this bridal showcase a delightful day-trip.

There will also be events scattered across the exhibition, including the unveiling of designer Mariana Hardwick's 2014 bridal collection and a performance on clothing in the novels of Jane Austen.
