Wedding Reception Aprons

Still looking for more dated apron photos. Do you have any?

Sarah's Notebook

Shower Aprons 1969

One of my continuing interests is in aprons. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to do too much on them although I’ve gotten some articles, books, and images from women’s magazines. I’m still looking for dated photos of people wearing aprons. Here’s another dated find. This is from my parents’s wedding reception.

This photo shows another class of aprons. This example is matching aprons for a special occasion like a wedding shower or reception. Usually these were frothy, decorative creations that were never meant to really protect clothes or last long. Note the aprons on about half the women at this wedding reception from 1969. Please share any dated apron photos you have.

  1. I don’t have any pictures, but my grandmother wore an apron every day! She died when she was 90, in the year 1990. She was born in 1900 and lived in a rural town of North Carolina her whole life.
