Queen Mary, The Queen Mum

6:55:00 PM

Designed by Madame Handley Seymour a former London court dressmaker to Queen Mary, The Queen Mum’s wedding gown was constructed of a silk moiré and was embellished with pearls.  It was not considered overly beautiful and portrayed the shapeless silhouette of much of the fashion of that era.  The shortened train and manner in which she wore her veil were characteristic of the 1920's though not typical of prior royal brides.
