This spooky little bride is all hard plastic with a slightly softer plastic face. She is in reasonable condition with only a small tear at the bottom of her veil. She still has her bouquet and hang tag.
She is not exactly a glowing bride is she! Perhaps a distant cousin of Chuky?
The hair is in really good condition and is of good quality. You can see the Madame Alexander tag stitched into her dress:
She is not one of my favourite dolls, and I have thought of selling her at times as she is huge and I don't really have the room to display her. But every time I look at these photos I think that I will keep her a little longer.
I also have an Elise Ballerina from about 1984 and she doesn't have the spooky doll look as much as the Bride:

For anyone wanting to research Madame Alexander dolls since 1965, the book by Patricia Smith called 'Madame Alexander dolls 1965 - 1990' (Collector Books 1991) is an excellent resource with good quality photos of hundreds and hundreds of dolls.
