note: this was not a custom at the time of St. Teresa of Jesus (of Avila) however. I'm not sure exactly when it began, but this seems to indicate it was the mid-1800's, http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/topic/129234-wedding-dresses-when-did-communities-start-using-them/

Thank you for those photos!!! I think it would be a great idea if someone submitted a request to the TV show "Say YES to the dress" and have RANDY help pick out a beautiful traditional wedding gown for a young lady who is entering a community! That would be so awesome! I bet Kleinfeld's would be hard pressed and challenged to find a real traditional wedding dress suitable for the occasion! Lol

I have a question for Gracian (or anyone) if he happens to see this. Any idea when this custom began for Discalced Carmelites? I would guess it was around the time of the French Revolution, as Sr. Mary Catharine indicated it was for Dominicans here, http://www.phatmass.com/phorum/topic/129234-wedding-dresses-when-did-communities-start-using-them/

 

It was included at the beginning in this film on the Carmelites of Compiègne ~ http://www.gloria.tv/?media=88487  although they didn't research Carmel very well before making this. For one thing, they're wearing cord cintures like Franciscans :topsy:

I am not sure when this started for the Discalced Carmelite Nuns.  What I know is that when the French Nuns founded the Carmels in the Philippines, they dressed their to be professed nun as brides.  Nevertheless, it may have begun as custom common to cloistered community at that time.

Beautiful pictures!!! :love: Thank you so much for posting these dymphnamaria! I had seen a few of them but not all. Thank you! I think these are the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, though I'm not 100% sure. Any idea Gracian? Thanks again!

Is it just me or do those "brides to be" look absolutely miserable!  LOL!  They seriously do.  Dern. 

 

You mean in the movie? Yes, they do a bit :hehe:

 

edit: or wait, you probably mean the above photos, there are some serious expressions there

I was thinking the same thing, ACS67.  I was in the convent when The Nun's Story came out, and I watched it with my mother.  She asked me if it was like that in my convent.  I remember answering her saying yes it was, EXCEPT our community was all about JOY!  No sour pusses in our convent!  Franciscan don't you know!
