I literally just found out how clever Sansa Starks wedding dress was…
Michele Clapton wanted the dress to tell Sansa’s story through the very detailed embroidery and it does.
Her lower back showing Stark direwolf and Tully fish to represent her roots, however as you move round the dress the Lannister lion becomes more dominant.
In areas it shows the contrast between the lion and the direwolf as they fight on her hips as she becomes more and more entangled by Lannister life.
Finally the Lions head is stamped on her back neck to represent how the Lannisters finally own her through marriage.
The Tully blue is faintly used in some areas however Lannister red and gold strong throughout. All of this while still using colours and styles that are typically Sansa.
