Yards of few modern brides could fit in Stunning Edwardian weddi

by Administrator

A stunning Edwardian wedding dress is about to be auctioned after being kept in pristine condition by the bride's family for more than a century.

But while it may have survived being bombed twice by the Luftwaffe and 104 years in storage unscathed, it appears the changing shape of modern women could mean the magnificent wedding dress is never again worn down the aisle.

The delicate Brussels lace was worn by petite Ethel Dalziel when she married Ronald Cooper in Glasgow, and is smaller than today's UK size 4.

All the accompanying accessories have incredibly remained with the dress, carefully looked after by the family.

Ethel's family moved to London during World War II where they were unluckily twice bombed out of their homes in Cheam and Enfield.

It also comes with a pair of cream ribbed lace-effect stockings, orange blossom wax headdress and a full length veil.
