Dressing The New Bride: Ideas From The 1950's

Dressing The New Bride: Ideas From The 1950's

"Besides the household possessions you bring to your new husband, it's customary to bring a wardrobe that is sufficient to last you through the first season of your marriage".

Suggested Clothes For The New Bride:

A new going away dress or suit.

Half a dozen new nightgowns and slips.

A pretty new housecoat.

A Couple of new blouses.

More Wardrobe Ideas:

"Or it may be a start - from- scratch new wardrobe, including a dozen new outfits and a fur coat".

"Lingerie items may very well be given to you as shower presents but otherwise your personal trousseau, great or small, is provided by your family or yourself".

The ideas posted here were first discussed in "Good Housekeeping's Complete Wedding Guide", Edited by Elizabeth Stewart Weston, Bridal Editor, Good Housekeeping Magazine, 1957
