40s Wedding Gown


What Happened to Dinner at Home After The Wedding?

My friend is having a very small wedding with only immediate family. Then she is having a sit down dinner at her home with family. She wants it to be intimate and memorable. And I thought this is cool, and memorable, and cost effective.
Has anyone done this or plans to do so.
I know this tradition started in the 40′s to 60′s I believe.

Hi. Very interesting that you bring up this topic. To be quite honest, I believe that you are going to see more and more couples opting for this in the future. The average cost of a wedding in the U.S. is upwards of $25,000 and is predicted to go to $30,000+ by 2010 (I did my research!) So….given that expense, I think people are going back to the “old fashioned” way of doing things.

I work at a church with many elderly people. I love to ask them about their weddings! Most, of course, were in the church. They usually only had 1 attendant each. Some simply wore their best Sunday dress….others did have a Wedding Gown. The dinner was held either at the church or in the home of the bride’s parents. Very nice!

To be honest…..the tradition goes back lots further than the 40s….probably to the 20s. Starting in the 50s-60s couples DID start having bigger receptions but many were still held in homes.

It was all so nice and simple then!
