Today is my husband and I’s 4 year wedding anniversary. Happy Anniversary to the most wonderful man on earth, who I know reads my blog when I remind him (Right Now as he reads this I can hear him say “I read it without you telling me too”. Okay dear.. lol!). 4 years has gone by so fast and it feels like just yesterday we were walking down the aisle towards each other to begin our life together. Jay is the love of my life and I’m very lucky to have him in my life.
Okay Okay…enough with the romance 🙂 Time for my blog post.
Keeping with the Wedding theme for today’s post, I wanted to share some Ads from the 1940s & 50’s that would have been directed right at the future bride. Keeping in mind that we are talking about a different time here, so the ads will feature mostly domestic items and outdated advertising.
First up to ensure you even get married, you need to wash with ‘Woodbury Soap’, like our Toronto bride has done in the ad below.
Or maybe Camay is more your kind of soap.
This pre-WWII ad invites young brides or brides-to-be to consider their sheet selection carefully before guests critique their home (organdie gown by Milgrim).
“Shower the bride with PYREX Ware!”
Silverware is a MUST purchase for the future brides home in 1949.
For the young lady with a dream…
Set for a lifetime with Melmac! “Lucky Bride and Lucky Bridegroom too”.
Lastly lets not forget about the ads that are about your look for that special day.
The DRESS! 1956 Alexandrine ad.
The Ring. “Your Keepsake……forever”.
The Scent-1948 Avon Comestics Ad.
The Lipstick that stays married to your lips.
And lastly the ultimate guide for every future bride in the 1950s….Fuller Brush Presents: ‘What every bride should know’
Ohhhh what do you think it said inside?
As you can see, it truly was a different time when these ads were created, and I’m very glad personally that these ads and the futures of young ladies today is very different.
Have a wonderful day friends!
