Famous quotes containing the words traditional, wedding, clothing and/or attire:

While those changes went forward apace, the antebellum South changed comparatively little, clinging to its rural, agricultural, labor-intensive economy and its traditional folk culture.

    The wedding was a quiet affair, and when called upon to enjoy my promotion from lodger to lover did I experience only bitterness and distaste? No.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    The band waked me with a serenade. How they improve! A fine band and what a life in a regiment! Their music is better than food and clothing to give spirit to the men.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    O thou day o’ th’ world,
    Chain mine armed neck, leap thou, attire and all,
    Through proof of harness to my heart, and there
    Ride on the pants triumphing!
    William Shakespeare (1564–1616)
