Ileana to wear gold and silver

July 15, 1931

Princess Ileana of Romania will be a "shining figure in gold and silver " when she marries Archduke Anton of Austria later this month.  The Associated Press reports that the princess's "bobbed auburn hair will be decked with a flowery veil embroidered with gold thread and her train will be resplendent with silver facing."

The veil and the train were made by two girls who are members of the Romanian Young women's Christian Association, founded by Princess Ileana.

Other details about the forthcoming wedding have also been announced.   The newlyweds will spend their honeymoon in a castle in the hills of southern Germany near Munich, a wedding gift from King Carol and the Prince of Hohenzollern. 

King Carol is "taking a personal interest" in his youngest sister's wedding, and is "supervising all the arrangements.
