Wedding Wednesday: Mother and Daughter

Collection of author

This unidentified bride and her mother posed circa 1914. The shawl collars on both of their dresses help place them in a time frame. 

So do the flowers.
Edwardian era bouquets were large with trailing ribbons, vines or flowers. Large lilies dominate the greenery. On her head this bride wears a type cap of flowers with a long veil.  Her mother's corsage consists of a single piece of greenery, perhaps a fern, with an accent bud.
