Hi, friends! It's another beautiful Pink Saturday with our lovely host Beverly at How Sweet the Sound and I have something really special to share today!
I've had this BEAUTIFUL set of vintage 1943 Wedding Day Paper Dolls in a drawer for probably over a year and, honestly, forgot about them!
The reason my eye was caught when I saw them at the flea market was because I collect vintage bride and groom cake toppers and the wedding theme hit me right across the head when I saw the main cardboard picture inside the bag...
Isn't it JUST GORGEOUS! And, yes, there's pink there on one of the bridesmaids!
So I wanted to show you the paper dolls themselves, the little girl who must have had this set wrote their names and "bride" "groomsman" etc on the back of each one...

And the rest of the wedding party...
(Linda the flower girl/Darlene, the bridesmaid/Lieutenant John Clark, the Best Man)
There is also another bridesmaid, but I used her just the other day in a very special card that is the post below, she seemed perfect right on that card!
I couldn't leave them in their undergarments, oh, my! That would be sacreligous with tomorrow being Sunday and all!
Isn't Marilyn a beautiful blushing Bride?!
Just in case my picture cuts off Marilyn, let's have another look!
And there are SO many clothes! And they're all just fabuously vintage and very brittle too! The names of each person are printed on the little tabs in a sweet cursive too, look close...
Look at that pantsuit! Wow!
And there's even a purse to match the green dress!
Happy Pink Saturday!
