In Rus­sia, it was cus­tom­ary to pre­pare a dowry for a girl: from estates and vil­lages for rich brides to house­hold tri­fles for fam­i­lies with mod­est incomes. But tex­tiles re always col­lect­ed as part of the dowry for the future fam­i­ly hearth: tols, pil­lows, feath­er beds, bed linen. Usu­al­ly, the bride her­self sed and embroi­dered these prod­ucts, and the groom and his fam­i­ly used them to deter­mine how skilled the girl was in needle­work. The more lace was on the linen, the high­er was the prop­er­ty sta­tus of the fam­i­ly. At the begin­ning of the 19th cen­tu­ry bed linen was not only includ­ed in the dowry, but also pre­sent­ed to the new­lyds. This tra­di­tion has been pre­served to this day.

To give or not to give?

With all the advan­tages of bed linen sets as gifts, it should be not­ed that not every guest can give bed linen to new­lyds. Such a gift would look most appro­pri­ate if:

  • you are a close rel­a­tive or friend of the new­lyds, best of all — moth­er-in-law or moth­er-in-law;
  • you know exact­ly the tastes of the young;
  • you choose a set not at the lost price, but at the best qual­i­ty.

It is inap­pro­pri­ate to give bed linen or it is easy to make a mis­take with his choice if:

  • you are a woman, and the groom is your col­league or boss;
  • you do not know the young peo­ple ll, they are your dis­tant rel­a­tives, com­mu­ni­ca­tion with which is lim­it­ed to con­grat­u­la­tions on hol­i­days;
  • you have nev­er been at the bride and groom’s house, you don’t know the dimen­sions of their bed, what size pil­lows they will use.

How to choose lingerie for a dding?

So, the deci­sion has been made, all the sub­tleties of eti­quette and your finan­cial capa­bil­i­ties have been tak­en into account — you are going to present a set of bed linen at the dding. What should it be? On a spe­cial day, under­ar should be spe­cial — choose sets made of high-qual­i­ty fab­ric, with a fes­tive design, but based on the con­ve­nience of fur­ther dai­ly use. You can choose a set from a wide vari­ety of stan­dard sets or look for spe­cial, “dding” lin­gerie:

  • Linen is sold in a beau­ti­ful gift box. You do not have to look for a sep­a­rate pack­age and beau­ti­ful­ly pack your laun­dry.
  • Pil­low­cas­es and duvet cov­er are dec­o­rat­ed with roman­tic embroi­dery.
  • You can choose Euro size (with duvet cov­er 200×220 cm) or stan­dard dou­ble (180×200 cm).
  • The kit will come in handy in the future for every­day use: the host­ess will be able to turn the pil­low­cas­es upside down with­out embroi­dery, with­out fear that the decor will cause dis­com­fort or leave marks on the face dur­ing sleep. The high strength of linen fibers will allow you to use one set for decades.
  • Snow-white bleached linen with accu­rate match­ing embroi­dery suits any inte­ri­or, looks solemn and ele­gant. In addi­tion, white sym­bol­izes the puri­ty of mar­riage, inno­cence and the dding itself.
  • Linen is good for the skin and pleas­ant to the touch. The bac­te­ri­ci­dal prop­er­ties of flax fibers pro­vide pro­tec­tion against fun­gi and bac­te­ria. Nat­ur­al linen per­fect­ly absorbs mois­ture, refresh­es the body in the heat and warms ll in the cold.
