HERE’S THE 1940 WEDDING ENSEMBLE, PROPERLY DISPLAYED

This is a bridal dress and veil from the early 1940’s that I had a surprise chance to acquire from the bride’s daughter.  Here it is in all it’s glory.  The story goes that it was ordered through the Eaton’s department store chain in Canada, and was made in Europe.

Eaton’s stores were a shopper’s paradise early in department store history in Ontario, and have now been closed.  This would have been a wonderful resource for a woman who wanted a commercially-made garment during the war years.  Although Canada was not as heavily involved in the war, it was subjected to many of the same restrictions of goods.

This beautiful ensemble has a traditional feel, which may reflect it’s European origins.  I so love finding fashions along with their histories . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
