By JEAN CAMP WOOD RIVER — The ever changing trend in feminine fash- Ions was clearly illustrated when the Senior Citizens of the First Church of Christ, Christian, were taken down memory lane with a style review of wedding fashions of yesteryear, this week in the church social rooms. Bridal bouquets and dresses dating from 1887 to the present day illustrated a sharp contrast of color, styling and customs. Shades of brown were the traditional color favorite of brides 50 to 75 years ago, because "it was a practical color which could be worn for many occasions following the wedding." Blue hues were the second color choice, and gradually the popular white of today began to dominate the wedding scene. Hemlines of wedding gowns have been as varied as the color choice; ranging from the floor sweeping gowns at the turn of the century to short dresses during the 20's, ballerina lengths in the 50's and back to the full length gown of today, which often extends into a train. The 76-year-old gown worn by Miss Ida Fahnestock for her marriage to Lemuel M. SoutKard Jr, Dec. 27, 1887, was modeled by Mrs. Claud Highight. Fashioned of light brown silk pongee, the two piece dress features a snugly fitted jacket with a high choker neckline, and full sleeves taper ing to fit the wrists, stitched down pleats at the waistline in back provide graceful draping effect to the full, floor length gown Small colonial bouquet similar in size to a large lollypop and without ribbon or Mils, were the traditional bridal flowers of the era. A dress of similar styling worn by Mrs. Ignazio Militello, 122 S Main St., who was married on the Island of Sicily Feb. 19, 1911, was modeled by Mrs. James Wells The cotton brocade fabric, called "raco" in Italy is in a pale shade of beige. Handmade lace medallions trim the full, floor length skirt, which sweeps into a short train in back. Handmade lace, braid ano7 edging in the same shade of beige accent the jacket top. Worn with the dress, is a shawl of dark brown, fine wool cloth, accented with bright colored designs and border. The shawl was folded in half and worn over the head and shoulders in the church. Italian women carried a Bible rather than flowers, however bouquets of the same period in this country, were made up of num erous small colonial clusters tin with ribbons, which were cut apart and thrown to the bidal attendants following the ceremonies. Contrasting with the gowns ol the earlier period was the 1934 bias cut, slim fitting floor length gown modeled by Mrs. Lynn Pulford. Styled of white satin, the lines of the gown are simple with the white lace yoke as the only accent. War years the traditional bridal dress and formal wedding fad ed from the picture, with most brides choosing a suit or tailored dress and a shoulder corsage for the wedding. Illustrating the present day fashion, was Mrs. Raymond Thornburgh wearing a 1959 formal gown of white satin and lace, with the floor length, bouffant skirt extending into a chapel train. Little greenery was used in the bouquets of the 50's which were rimmed with frills of rib boo, tulle and net. Miss Irene Logadon served as commentator for the fashions of days gone by. A parade of humorous styles modeled by young women of the church concluded the banquet and entertainment honoring the Senior Citizens. New England's cotton • spinning industry is a monument to the mind of a master mechanic from Derbyshire, England.
