In ancient France it was the prerogative of the Hus band to be to inspect the possessions which his Fiancee brought with her before the marriage. If the Trousset or Little bundle was not sufficient the ceremony might be called off in those Days a Trousseau consisted not Only of personal wearing apparel appropriate for the wedding and Honey Moon but also of All kinds of household items including Silver tableware China and linens. Any girl who could add a pair of handsome candlesticks to the Trousset did t have cause to worry about her future. Today happily a girl s Charm and personality count for vastly More than her possessions. And these Days when the husband to be is found inspecting the Sterling before the wedding he s simply helping his Fiancee choose the pattern. More and More Young couples according to bridal consultants make the final selection together and this certainly makes sense for the husband will be using the family Sterl ing almost As much As his wife in the years to come.
