This the first of many Barbie wedding dresses.  It was introduced along with her debut in 1959.  It was produced for three years, through 1962.  It was replaced in 1963 by Bride's Dream.

Vintage Barbie Wedding Day Set #972 (1959-1962)

A beautiful bridal gown in pure white satin with an overlay of flocked and silver glitter accented tulle. The exquisitely crafted gown features a full double tier skirt with a train.  The dress closes with two snaps down the back of the bodice.

It is very hard to find with the sheer long-sleeve tulle bodice intact. The tulle tears easily and the glitter wears off easily. Many available dresses are missing the bodice completely. If you do acquire this dress, be extremely careful when putting it on a doll, the doll’s thumbs are prone to go through the tulle and tear the sleeve. 

The plain white veil with a ring of pearls was used again in Bride’s Dream. The veil and other pieces in this ensemble are pretty easy to find, with the garter and bouquet being the hardest. The elastic will usually be stretched out in the blue garter.
