Brides and wedding dolls are special to collectors. Some collectors specialize in brides and wedding dolls from various countries.  I have looked for a Norwegian bride doll for years, but haven’t come up with one yet.  I childhood friend of mine had one, and I’ve wanted one ever since!

 

Still, I do have brides of all types, from all over the world.  They decorated the tables at my wedding reception. My fiancé, now husband, drew the line, though, when I wanted to include Corpse Bride dolls and the head of Dracula’s bride. Spoil sports, I say!  I also have cake toppers, some humorous, with brides chasing down grooms, and others vintage and sentimental, like the hugging wedding Kewpies that topped my babysitter’s wedding cake over 70 years ago. She gave them to me, to use for my wedding.

 

Special wedding dolls in my collection include those dressed in material from my mother’s and grandmother’s wedding dresses. My mother had a traditional, late 1950s dress with long veil and full skirt of tulle.  Her dress was rented; she kept only remnants and her shoes and veil.  My grandmother had a French silk, flapper style dress.  She and my grandfather married in Paris in 1927; she had a complete French trousseau.  Her dress melted over time,  but I salvaged most of it and dressed dolls for me, my mother and aunt.  I used even the scraps in clear plastic balls to make ornaments.

 

Wedding dolls are special, and international bride dolls are intricate and unusual.  They commemorate a happy time in a couples’ life, and are as beautiful and varied as the people and dolls that wear them.
