Friday Flashback: Veiled Bridesmaids

We're starting to think today's bridemaids have it easy. Well... when it comes to wardrobe, anyway. Even if they don't like the dresses or shoes, at least they don't have to contend with a veil. A veil for bridesmaids? Apparently, it was commonplace not too long ago.

And here's a Bruce Davidson photograph of bridesmaids at a wedding in Harlem in 1962.

Although this looks kinda neat for the time, I'm not feeling this look for today.
