Queen Victoria marries

On 10 February 1840 Queen Victoria married her German cousin Albert. The Queen wore white. Wearing a white wedding dress was not about purity. Wearing white clothes was a status symbol/ Cleaning white clothes was very difficult so if you wore white it meant you had a lot of servants to clean them. However in the 19th century wearing a white wedding dress became much more common.
