What the bride will wear!

February 19, 1893

Archduchess Margarete-Sophie of Austria, who is engaged to marry Duke Albrecht of Württemberg, is wear a wedding gown made from "ivory grosgrain silk embroidered with silver in a design of marguerites and myrtle," reports the Los Angeles Times.

The "low, round bodice and sleeves are trimmed with Indian muslin and real orange blossoms and myrtle." The "trained skirt" is trimmed with wreaths made from the same decorations.  The design also features "long panels of the silver embroidery," which fall from the bodice to the hem of the skirt."

The bride will also wear a mantle, made from ivory silk, "embroidered in silver, with a high collar  trimmed with marabout feathers."

She will also reeive the honor of the Golden Rose from the Pope.
