I AM Indeed glad that at last a
change baa come over bridal
- fashions, that 'the modern
eplrit has permeated even that last
stronghold of conventionalized fash
Ion. For generations the bride's
costume was never anything but
white satin and point lace. In fact,
this costume had become so thor
oughly a habit that no bride seemed
to think that sho was legally mar

. But to-day the picturesque fash
Ions of the world have touched the
bride, too, and I am showing you,
this week, a costume that I think
has all the charming charactertis
tics of the present era.

poBOheld by the bride's attendants
is also changing. Tho maid of hon

crook and held the bride's graceful
"fish tall" train In her left hand.
The gown I am showing you this
week Is elaborate In design and
treatment Formerly, elaboration
was not for the bride; sho was sup
posed to walk her flowery way to
the altar garbed as simply as a
schoolgirl, hor whlto satin made as
plainly, as i -vrnvent uniform, high
necked, long-sleoved bpdlco and Jaco
Tell arranged -under orange blos
soms. This gown Is created In oxqulsite
white Matalasso, combined with
white tulle embroldorod with seed
pearls. It is the design rather than
the fabric that is daring for a brido.
There Is an underskirt of soft
white crepe, edged at the. bottom
with white silk fringe. This skirt
Is only glimpsed in the front where
the robe la slit. This robe, as you
can see in tho picture, has tho front
cut up several InchoB. Tho train is
very long and narrow.
There Is, of course, some slight
drapery, and equally, of course, this
drapery Is In the back.
The bodice, cut low, Is entirely
of the pearl tulle. The sleeves are
a modification of tho old angel
sleevo and are very graceful, There
Is a high girdle of the Matalasso,
thus making one color lino from
shoulder to slipper.
From under this girdle hangs a
wide panol pf the pearl tulle, which
Is exceedingly decorative and ef
fective. And then tho veil. In New York
t realize that tho lace yell, draped
cap fashion updor orange blossoms,
still holds, but. in England and on
tho Continont, tho veil of tulle, vol
uminous and graceful, Is do rigour.
There must always bo a short voll
over tho bride's face as she, walks
to tho altar; this is thrown back as
sho walks back with her husband.
Your brldOB of Southern birth and
brooding, I bollqvo, still cling to this
faco veil. It Is a charming 'custom,
But of what real usq is a lace yell
afterwards? It is kept, in many In
stances, for futuro brides; grand
daughters in New York frequently
wear veils worn by their grand
mothers. There can bo Just as much
sentiment about a tulle voll as about
an ornato lace ono, and there 1b
much more art in the former, to say
nothing of tho better taste.
And now to toll you of the brides
maid, her quaint costume and her
change of pobo.
To do a quaint action ono must
wear quaint clothes. Is not this
costumo shown horo the epitome of
qualntness? It is Just a simple lit
tle robo of pale pink chiffon, worn
over a petticoat of whlto silk mull
and valenccnnes laco. The scal
loped edges are bound with pale
blue, and the flowers In each scal
lop are developed In pale bluo and
' pink. There are clusters of tucks
to break tho sovorlty of tho skirt.
The bodies is as quaintly slmplo
as the skirt. Dy the way, there is
a difference between simple and
quaint Somo very elaborate gowns
can have tho quality of qualntness.
In this caso, however, quatntnoss
and simplicity go hand in hand.
There is no embroldory, no decora
tion of any kind on the bodice;
Just the scalloped bertha of tho
chiffon edged with the blue, to match
the skirt. I particularly llko the
Ellzabothan sleeves, with their
shoulder puff and long "cuffs." The
dainty finish around tho hand is ono
of the littlo touches that only an
artist could have developed.
Tho Juliet cap of chiffon and laco
is piquant and becoming. It baa
tiny bluo and pink rosebuds on tho
left side, to match those on tho

girdle Is of bluo and pink satin.
