This talk will explain the wedding customs of 15th century Florence and how they developed. It will introduce the art associated with such ceremonies and associated meaning, which is closely linked to women’s roles and the expectations for new brides. The talk will explore concepts like dowries, wedding processions, the ceremony, clothing, and what gifts were popular to give to the newly married couple.
