Your Wedding Trousseau aka Honeymoon Clothes
Back in the Victorian times, a woman filled her
hope chest with fine dresses, undergarments,
toiletries and other frillies that she was saving
for her marriage. The wedding trousseau was clothing
and accessories she brought into the marriage that was
to be the clothing she wore on her honeymoon and
newlywed years. It was like a "bonus"to the groom.
He didn't have to buy her any clothing for a long time. ;)
A measure of the family's wealth was instilled in the
brides trousseau.The more goodies in her hope chest,
the better the catch.
Today your trousseau is the clothes you wear on
your honeymoon. Every bride wants pretty new
things to wear on her honeymoon. Your trousseau are the
clothes you wear in the day and sexy honeymoon
lingerie, shoes, handbags and other accessories.
Shopping for your honeymoon trousseau is second to
shopping for your wedding dress. You should plan
your trousseau according to the type of honeymoon
you are having. If its beach, think shorts, cover ups,
cami's, bathing suits, sundresses, sandals and flip flops.
On a cruise, all of the above, plus two formal dresses
or outfits, a pair of heels and some dinner outfits.
If you are going to an all inclusive resort, check out
their web site for ideas on what to pack. It probably
will be the same as on a cruise.
The rule of the honeymoon trousseau is that you
have one new piece of lingerie per evening. Some
will be gifts from best friends and from your wedding
party. Others will be frilly things you buy for yourself.
