I’m going to share something today that is very special, but also somewhat personal. My mom recently gave me her own mother’s bridal book, which she used in 1944. From what I can gather, these books were basically a diary/scrapbook hybrid. (Do they still exist? Maybe! I have pretty much zero exposure to the wedding industry as it is today). I’m just going to show the illustrations inside, and not all the notes and memories that my grandma (the same person who went to Mission High School) wrote. The copyright reads 1943 and it definitely shows in the illustration style. This book is beautiful and I will always treasure it.
