The 1775 – 2014 Wedding Dress exhibition is in full swing at the Victoria and Albert Museum London and wedding season itself is gathering momentum. We thought we’d take this opportunity to look at a little bridal etiquette from times gone buy as well as showcase some of our favourite lingerie pieces for the modern bride’s trousseau.
