Trousseau Tea

"A proper Victorian maiden came to her marriage bringing love, devotion - and a lifetime's supply of lingerie..."

The bridal trousseau is a centuries old tradition. A hopeful, single woman would begin collecting the belongings needed for her marriage at a very young age. Her wedding gown, corsets, lingerie, jewellery, bridal accessories and bedding for her new home were all packed into what was called a hope chest. A woman would also pack outfits for her honeymoon and newlywed days.

The trousseau has been an important bridal tradition since the Victorian Era so Susan Murray has decided to bring a modern spin to this old tradition by incorporating it in our events.

Planning a bridal shower or bachelorette party? Then Susan Murray's Trousseau Tea is the perfect way to combine a sophisticated tradition with a sexy modern touch! We've combined embroidery, lace, organza, jewels and so much more to create a theme inspired by the Victorian Bridal Trousseau.

Our Pink French Pleating with a glamorous brooch creates the perfect luxurious look!

Lace, feathers, jewels and organza creates a feminine touch to any chair back.

You couldn't pack a Bride's Trousseau without a little lace! At Susan Murray we have many different styles and colors of lace to fit your trousseau. 

 There are many different ways to create your own unique Trousseau Tea, check out for more ideas!
