“Outlander” Season 1 episode 7 will show the moment that fans of the books have been waiting for: Jamie and Claire’s wedding. While some TV shows make fans wait for years before the main couple even kisses, “Outlander” is marrying Jamie and Claire before the first season ends. Of course, it isn’t exactly their choice. Capt. Black Jack Randall demanded that Claire be brought back to the redcoats for questioning. Dougal told her that the only way to save her was to make her Scottish by marriage. Once she is Scottish, the redcoats cannot take her into custody without evidence. Thus, she has to marry Jamie.
In the sneak peek video fans can see that planning a last minute wedding is tough. One vital part of the wedding they need to figure out is Claire’s dress. It’s not like the men she’s traveling with just happen to have a wedding gown in their bag.
Ned Gowan stops by a brothel (perhaps being on the road collecting taxes with a dozen men and Claire makes him lonely…or do prostitutes pay taxes?), and one kind prostitute happens to have a wedding dress.
Her client was described as “long on desire, but a wee bit short on clink. He proposed a trade and I accepted.”
Of course, the woman was hoping to wear the dress herself. “Never been worn,” she says. “Was waiting for a gentleman to visit before putting it on, but I suppose it’s best I never did. No lass should wear another woman’s dress on her wedding day.”
“That’ll do nicely,” Ned smiles.

Ned is the accountant for the MacKenzies. He keeps track of books and often accepts goods as payment. The wedding dress might be the prostitutes’ payment for rent and taxes.
