When you do attend your next wedding, we thought you may wish to pass on the following 1950’s advice to the bride-to-be…with caution 😉

‘Often a husband can make that first night easier for a wife if he finds an errand to perform while his bride is preparing to retire,’ wrote psychologist Dr Clifford R. Adams in Modern Bride magazine in 1952

‘A social service meeting, an afternoon tea, a matinee, a whatnot, is no excuse for there being no dinner ready when a husband comes home from a hard day’s work,’ advised the Rev A. H. Tyrer

 

According to Tyrer, the ideal wife ‘remembered her husband’s choice of meat and was careful to get an extra fine cut , her best cutlery and dishes and finest linen are all in evidence, and a little colourful decoration has been tastefully displayed’
