The angelmist taffeta skirt with lace panels had bows in the back. Her bouffant veil was held in place by a crown of crystals and drop pearls and her bouquet was was a cascade of red roses and white carnations.

They wore street-length dresses of aqua silk organza with fitted bodices, bateau necklines with draped cowl collars and full gathered skirts with small velvet bows at the waistline. All wore matching headpieces with face veils and carried colonial bouquets of pink and white carnations.
