Bridal Trousseau - Hope Chest
Background of the Bridal Trousseau
Most brides and mothers of girls know about the Hope Chest. This is a wooden chest or box that is given to a young girl, for her to store her precious possessions in. It stores the things she will need as a young bride and wife. Often relatives give the girl presents over the years to serve as her wedding clothing or bridal set. The word "Trousseau" means bundle in French.
It's never too late to begin a hope chest! Even married women can keep a host chest in their home, full of their memories and of special items which bring them happiness through life.
