While flipping through the pages of my mid-century women’s magazines, I often wonder about the person who bought the magazine originally. Let’s assume that the bride-to-be who bought this 1964 summer edition of the Bride & Home magazine did so with curiosity and excitement. The cover shows a bride and groom with the look of perfection. Each possess a classic look and attractive charm that is pleasant to look at. The editors took it a step further and added unexpected gigantic flowers to the mix. It is perhaps a nod to the yet-to-be flower power movement that would define the sixties.
This is definitely my favorite cover in my mid-century magazine collection.
