"What is a Hope Chest?"
Hundreds of years ago, marriages
were formed for reasons other than love and included some exchange of
property between the families of the Bride and Groom. The Groom's family
would pay money or land to the Bride's family for the Bride. The Bride's
family reciprocated by providing the couple with a dowry of various
household items for their new home, such as dishes, pots and pans, china,
silverware, etc. As a Bride planned for her future marriage, she would
add to this dowry with items she either collected or made (i.e. embroidered
linens, towels, quilts). All these items would be kept in a special
Hope Chest which would go with her when she married. In the olden days
a hope chest might be the only possession a single woman would have.
We recently tied those knots and have tips, tricks and trials to share:
Your Registry, make it obvious,
easy and with a wide range of price options. For some of your guests
the trip will have been a serious expense while others will floor you
with their generosity. Try to register with some stores from which your
guests can order easily online. Many couples do a wedding web site to
get responses and give directions but it is also a great place to put
phone numbers and links to the places you are registered.
