Lingerie Jewelry Chest

Collecting Your Wedding Trousseau   by Hilbert John

The compilation of the wedding trousseau is a traditional, widespread nuptial practice that is a precursor to Michigan weddings and many, many more. Dating back to Victorian times, the word trousseau is rooted in the French word ‘trousse,’ which means ‘to bundle.’ Brides literally bundled their pre-wedding possessions in anticipation of their new married life, taking objects into the marriage that would be remembered for generations – and some that were purely practical.

Go traditional and collect your own wedding trousseau. Pick a sturdy chest that you can imagine storing some of your most treasured items inside. Follow this longstanding tradition that many brides are pleasantly surprised that they’ve embraced, even if they do not do so on purpose. Read below to learn more.

-The traditional trousseau is stored in an old-fashioned hope chest. It includes possessions that brides hope to begin their marriage with. They are practical items such as linens, blankets and quilts that will metaphorically keep their new family warm and cozy.

-The memorable parts of the trousseau are wedding-specific. The earrings, necklace, bracelet and any other jewelry the bride will wear during the marriage ceremony are naturally vital trousseau items. Though worn for just one day, these items will have a sentimentality that endures for years and years and perhaps centuries. They may even become priceless family heirlooms. Often a grandmother’s lace handkerchief will join the new items and serve as a bride’s ‘something old.’

-Toiletries and makeup are a more transient part of the trousseau. A bride accumulates these for the marriage and beyond – perhaps a shiny bronzer for their tropical vacation or a rich shea butter lotion to ward off dry skin during the ski trip.

-Lingerie rounds out the trousseau. During Victorian times, this would consist of a simple white nightdress. Today, there is no end to the colors and designs of negligee wear.

Collecting your wedding trousseau is a personal endeavor that is rooted both in history and practicality. By planning ahead for your special day, you won’t spend any precious time running all over town to find that last item. Just like any other wedding, Michigan weddings are made special by the personal touches the couple adds. Take those items and add them to the hope chest.
