Silk gauze Quaker wedding dress trimmed with silk embroidered net lace and silk satin, British or French, 1874. Quakers in Britain varied in their approach to dress. In general they favoured mainstream styles, wishing to appear well-dressed without standing out. Lucretia Crouch adopted this course when she married Benjamin Seebohm at the Friends' Meeting House in Clevedon on September 10, 1874. Her husband, a bank manager, was a widower with a young daughter.
