Vintage Barbie fashion #947, Bride's Dream

This is the most common of several vintage Barbie bridal fashions, Bride's Dream. It was available from 1963-1965. It consists of:

  • white satin, short-sleeved wedding gown. There is a ribbon bow in the front and snaps in the back. The Barbie tag is located in the bodice.
  • white open-toe shoes
  • bouquet: this is the same bouquet as Wedding Day Set
  • faux pearl necklace
  • long white gloves
  • blue garter
  • tulle veil with faux pearl headpiece
When searching for this fashion try to find a gown that is still clean and look carefully in the veil for holes. This ensemble near mint and complete sells for about $155.


  1. Look how gorgeous this is NRFB. Oh my! I really love how pretty the pearls (both the necklace and the veil) look. Pretty!

  2. Could you post a picture of the back, and one side of the box? Also, box number? I mean, if there's nothing on the back then don't post, that. But I just want to make sure I can identify this item should ever come across one. ~Ken

  3. Hi Ken, The fashion # is 947. The back of the box has graphics of Midge in Red Flare and Barbie in Garden Party and says "Another beautiful teen-age fashion for Barbie & Midge". ~Kathie

  4. Thanks, Kathie!
    I'm on the hunt. (at the risk of sounding crass.)

  5. Bellisimas estas muñecas yo todavía conservo a la Barbie! Me encanta tu blog!!!
