I was never a bridesmaid and very jealous of friends who had lots of relatives getting married at the right time.
As another point, a wedding that I went to as a child in about 1960 had the wedding presents on display.  Cannot remember if that was at the bride's house or reception venue.
Anyone know when that stopped happening?

BumbleB,

I remember seeing pictures of the outside of his house, found an article:

In the first 9 weddings that I have looked at in 1969, in January and February, the mothers' outfits have been described for 11 of them, and 6 were wearing fur in some form.

My obvious next research must be when did artificial fur become popular?

I wonder how many of the bridesmaids kept their gifts. (Gadget?)

Hi, BumbleB,  I used to go to school in Cheadle Hulme.  We moved from Hertfordshire, where my sister and I had both been going to a mixed school, to Cheshire, and refused to go to the nearest school in Wilmslow as it was single-sex.

2 queries:

1) At a wedding if the bridesmaid(s) was/were reported in the newspaper as wearing a gold or silver bracelet or necklace, gift of the groom, would it be proper gold (or silver)?

2) If the mother of the bride or groom was wearing a fur coat, fur hat and crocodile accessories, would all those be real?  If just a fur-trimmed collar - what that be real fur?

I have tried google searching, but think I need pointing to a decent historical study of the rise and fall of furs, and wedding gifts, which probably exist but outside my normal searches.

Thank-you

Doesn't get us any further, does it?

Would give her birth year as 1912/1913, which agrees with the original 1939 birth date.  Wonder who was looking after her from birth onwards, and why she ended up in Shipley, and did anyone 'give her away'?

Thanks for that tree, did not appear when I was trying general searches, before I was convinced it was correct man.  Photo bonus.   :)

Because of my ignorance, I would not even recognise Dagny as a female name.
