Eleanor Ford in her wedding dress

Eleanor Clay Ford, wife of Edsel Bryan Ford, in her wedding dress, 1916. From Wikimedia Commons.

Here is a bride in her wedding dress, from 1916. Look at the headdress that holds up the veil! Marvelous! And the beaded decoration on the front of her dress! Wow!

She seems serene, if not exactly happy. One wonders if this portrait was taken before or after her wedding; and what she could be thinking.  But she certainly qualifies as a “pretty face”, so I decided to include her this week.

That is quite the dress and veil! Maybe she was dreading leaving the wedding in a Ford and not a carriage? Or she foresaw the future of a car named ‘Edsel.’ Thank you for the image.
