Mead notes that Queen Victoria married Prince Albert in white, but that in the nineteenth century a less affluent English woman might opt to wear a dark dress for her wedding, to which she could add a white collar to signify her transformation from maiden to bride. Katharine does not seem to have been invested in the performance of class that white wedding dresses increasingly represented on both sides of the Atlantic. Her navy dress was a departure from the normative practices of the class into which she was marrying.

So Katharine was dressing for a trip. Her navy dress was not simply a wedding dress; it was a garment in which she could travel. As Mead reminds us, white is not an easy color to keep clean. This was part of its allure, but it was also a limitation.

Former Reynolda House Curator of Costumes Ruth Mullen notes that the local newspaper reported that Katharine wore “a beautiful and becoming tailor-made” suit of navy blue wool, and that, “The waist was of navy blue chiffon over white silk trimmed with real lace.” She also donned a hat of beaver, a material known for both style and resilience in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.

So pretty, right? I'm always pushing nonwhite wedding dresses for brides—white just isn't that flattering on most girls—but colorful gowns aren't mainstream just yet.

Perhaps Katharine could have worn white and changed. But she didn’t. In one sense, this was a practical choice, but it was also a performance. Her navy dress was a sign that she could afford more than a white gown: she could afford Europe in the form of the “Grand Tour,” a required undertaking from the nineteenth century for wealthy Americans.

Her dress was a sign of privilege, but not the sign of privilege one might have expected. Navy blue signified not her pristine and protected removal from the world, as white would have, but her status as a traveler. It stood for a geographic mobility that mirrored her social mobility. Katharine’s ability to travel underscored her social position. The Grand Tour was a sign of the elite position she would claim on their return.

But a white wedding dress would not have been a practical choice for her. The Mount Airy News reported that immediately after the ceremony, the Reynolds took a train to Greensboro and then boarded another train to New York City, where the Baltic awaited them, an ocean liner owned by the White Star Line that would late commission the Titanic. They landed in Liverpool, traveled to London, and began a tour of almost two dozen of Europe’s great cities.
