Have you wondered why brides wear white? Why bridal gowns are swathed in lace? Why lilies and orange blossoms scent bridal bouquets? This one-day seminar will look at the most famous “Princess Brides” of the last century—Queen Victoria; Princess Alexandra; Queen Elizabeth II; Princess Grace of Monaco; Princess Diana; and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge—to find the meanings and traditions behind every pearl, every flower, and every scrap of lace. One session.
