40's Wedding Wear Back to Colleen's Costumes

Forties This was for Andrew and Jennifer Rich's wedding in November of 1998. As best man, Shawn is wearing a rented tuxedo.

I was one of the bridesmaids. We each wore this same jacket in a different color. It was a Past Patterns Attic Copy, which meant it only came in one size, so we had to resize it to fit. Attic Copies are actually copies of a pattern from the time period, as opposed to a recreation of a pattern made with modern measurements, etc.

I wish I could have my hair done like this all the time! Jennifer had someone come in and give us all forties "do"s for the wedding.

Jennifer's dress was beautiful! It was made by Kate Morgenstern. I'll post a picture as soon as I have time to scan one.
