A hope chest is a wooden chest or trunk that stores special items for a bride. This tradition came from arranged marriages from centuries ago where the groom’s family offered money to the bride and she, in turn, would come with a dowry of silverware, linens, and china in the chest. It was a symbol of the significance of the new marriage.
