Queen Astrid's Wedding Dress


For the nuptial blessing in Brussels on November 10, 1926. I was surprised at the dark, rich color of the dress. In the photographs of the ceremony it looks lighter.

The richness is in the fabric and the subdued color- elegance at its purest. Love when you post these:) Thanks!

You're welcome!

The color and sheen are very subtle- like Astrid herself.
