A Modern Trousseau

Historically, a bridal trousseau was stored in a hope chest and contained all of the items a bride needed for her big day and beyond—her bridal outfits, jewelry, makeup, lingerie—even bed sheets for her new home!

In Victorian times, trousseaus included family heirlooms and handmade items crafted by the bride-to-be or her female relatives. The bridal trousseau also consisted of brand-new outfits that were carefully selected and stored in preparation for the wedding, honeymoon, and first few weeks as newlyweds.

Today, women gather different items in preparation of the big day.  Many begin a collection of wedding and honeymoon lingerie. These pieces are sometimes purchased by the bride, but often are given as gifts by the bride’s mother or wedding party.

So, here are few goodies we think you should collect for your bridal troussea, which can all be found on NET-A-PORTER.
