Grab your pearls and let's go!
This is the joy of paper doll weddings...even though they happened nearly 60 years ago...the copyright on this set of paper dolls is 1954...the wedding goes on and on.
My sister and her husband were clearing out the cottage. They took load after load to the transfer station. She and I had last done this about a decade ago and it desperately needed doing again. In the process, she rescued my paper doll set.
When I was a child, all I needed was a set of paper dolls like this one to keep me happy for days and days on end, perhaps even an entire summer.
Here's the bride...what's up with that pink wedding dress? I hope it's
only a matter of marketing and not morals.
Edited to Add: Thanks to Jill's comment, and she would know because she's a fashionista, I was able to find a pink wedding dress from the 50s.
Here's the bride's trousseau. It's a little worse for wear. In fact, the dolls themselves have seen far better times. A bridesmaid has lost her feet and the groom, poor man, has lost his head.
It warms my heart to see how fond of the headless groom the bride still is.;D
The more I think about it, the more I am thinking this "bridesmaid" doesn't go with this set. I got a clue when I found Sonja Henie skating through the batch.
You've waited long enough. Here are the bride and the flower girl in all their cotton candy glory.
I may have smoothed their ruffled pixels too much, though doesn't it give that misty out of time appearance?
Some other things I'd promised I'll save for another day. You have a good one!
