A Royal Wedding Gown

People often ask what became of Marie-Antoinette's wedding gown. It no longer exists and was probably made into a set of  church vestments as were many gowns of that quality. However, to see something similar one only has to look at the wedding dress of the Protestant princess Edwige Elizabeth Charlotte Holstein-Gottorp, future Queen of Sweden, as shown on Lauren's blog. It is still in existence and was recently on display at Versailles.
