Kennedy Wedding Post-script – Paper Replica of the Wedding Gown on Display at Kennedy Library


To remember the 50th wedding anniversary of the Kennedy wedding, a paper replica of her now iconic wedding dress was created by  Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave, who painted and prepared the paper to mimic the texture and ivory color of the silk taffeta dress. It was displayed in Chicago at Marshall Field’s. For the 60th anniversary, the Kennedy Library will have the replica on special display from September 12 – November 3, 2013. Jacqueline Kennedy’s actual wedding gown, part of the Kennedy Library’s permanent collection, is now too fragile for display and was last featured in a 2003 exhibit marking the 50th wedding anniversary.
