Posted on


Today’s role is not either an movie star, also not an singer, it is about an ordinary girl. This stunning 1950’s bride get married when she was just 18 years old in the February of 1951.  She and her finance got married in her home town of Newberry, South Carolina, USA, where she leave her life, where she raise up her children.

This bride wear a classic satin vintage lace dress with an off the shoulder, “scarf” collar and deep lace insert. The beautiful dress was adorned by a central line of tiny satin covered buttons, which were also used on the fitted, full-length sleeves. Like many fashionable fifties wedding gowns, the sleeves finished with a “v” point a the cuff.

The bride's head piece  is a striking plaited tulle head piece veil, from which her waist-length veil fell in loose gathers. Tulle was also used in her gorgeously simple bouquet of five large carnations.

She and her husband get married for almost 60 years, this stunning bride became a stunning mother of three boys. She became her boys’ Cub Scout den mother (Cub Scout leader in the UK) and her boys all attained the highest level in scouting. Two of her grandchildren are now young pilots in the US military – one flying F-15 Eagles for the Air Force and the other flying Apache helicopters for the Army.
