The front of the dress was trimmed with Chantilly lace and the skirt with chapel train had a large silk organza bow at the back waistline. Her headpiece was made of Chantilly lace trimmed with seed pearls, to which the three-tiered veil of French illusion was attached.

There hats were in matching pale blue nylon organza. They were bow-shaped with a fabric rose and lily of the valley trim, to which were attached face veils of blue illusion.
