L' Echo de Paris, 1927

Above, three of five different dress designs for this 1927 bride's party, plus two identically dressed flower girls.
        Just before the organ peals forth the wedding march, with what suppressed excitement the bridal party wait their cue to assemble! For just as vital as clothes, to the correct wedding, is the conventional order of the procession: bridesmaids come first, two by two; maid of honor next, and alone; the flower girls ahead of the bride, and the bride last on the arm of her nearest male relative.

       Observe this bride's gown of ivory satin. It offers the classical simplicity demanded of the smart bride in 1927. It has a clever arrangement of two trains instead of the usual one. How lovely the bridal attendants look in their modish frocks, wide hats, and satin slippers! In vivid contrast to the purity of the bride's white, the bridesmaids may appear each in a different color-- a sort of rainbow processional.
