Princess Marie's $300,000 bridal trousseau

October 26, 1907

The New York Times reports today that Prince Roland Bonaparte is spending $300,000 on his daughter, Princess Marie's bridal trousseau. The princess is to marry Prince George of Greece. Her wardrobe is said to "rival in magnificence those prepared in the Rue de la Paix for wealthy American brides.
Princess Marie has a "strong predilection" for the Empire style. This will be a "predominating note in the trousseau," and Paris fashion leaders are predicting that "royal bride's new frocks will bring the Empire style again into immediate fashion."
