In 1997 Mattel added Fashion Avenue line names to the packages. There is a separate Bridal line this year and one wedding gown is included in the Evening Wear line, but it is a repeat from last year. The Bridal line interior packages have a pink instead of cream background. I have also seen this wedding gown with a pink body form, and Deluxe, on the package. The 1997 Mattel USA Vendor catalog gives each fashion a theme name, but it isn’t included anywhere on the package. Beautiful bridal fashions for Barbie doll, including shoes and accessories
