TROUSSEAU The bride's 'going-away' clothes will depend very much on the form of holiday the honeymoon will take. The most popular outfits are still either skirted or trousered suits or dresses with matching coats suitable for travel.
Invariably the bride equips herself with a new suite of luggage, new shoes and handbag. At a really informal wedding, however, the bridal and going-away dress may be one and the same. In days gone by, the bride considered it her responsibility to have in her 'bottom drawer' whole sets of new underwear in sufficient quantity that her husband-to-be would not need to buy her anything new for at least the first year of their life together.
Today, however, fashions change so fast that it would be an absurdity to buy a year's supply of any clothes which could well become outdated before they could be outworn.
