The bridesmaids wore delphinium blue dresses and modish Dutch-style hats of silver lace, designed by Edwina herself.  The dresses were made in layers of blue crepe and mauve georgette, which hung in folds and tied with sashes of mauve and green shot silk.  They also wore silver silk stockings and green shoes.  Edwina's headdress was a wreath of orange blossom, mounted on silver wire with a crystal dewdrop fixed to each flower.  Her dress was simple and straight, tied halfway down by two sashes embroidered with pearls, diamonds and crystals.  The bouquet included delphiniums and silver ribbons.
