CROSSWORD ANSWER Brides go on-line to the aisle Mom and daughter make wedding plans through e-mail By BARBARA MAYER The Associated Press Microsoft magnate Bill Gates says he once maintained a "virtual dating" relationship with a woman in another city via e-mail and cellular phone — so it's not surprising that computers are becoming a part of the wedding picture. The powerful tools can keep track of wedding plans, carry messages to family and friends, aid in obtaining information from vendors, and sometimes even connect couples who want to complain, commiserate and ask one another for advice. To take advantage of all these services, a computer has to be equipped with a modem and the user needs an e-mail address, either through work or through one of the on-line services such as America On-Line, CompuServe or Prodigy. For Carolyn Pytte and her mother, Patricia Pytte — both hooked into the Internet — e-mail was a valuable adjunct to planning for Carolyn's wedding. "It was more efficient than a telephone call, less intrusive and less expensive," says Patricia Pytte. "Each of us typed in ideas for the reception when we got an inspiration — things that wouldn't have been worth a telephone call." For those who are plugged in, but not connected, there are software programs such as the "Wedding Workshop" and "I Do: The Ultimate Wedding Planner," which are among a number of high-tech versions of old-fashioned wedding planning books. Programs such as these keep track of many details, such as wedding guest lists, seating charts, expenses, gifts and the names and addresses of vendors being considered or already hired. These software programs are the most common uses of comput- ers for weddings, according to Millie Bratten, editor of Bride's magazine. But they may be a form of technological overkill; a review of five current wedding planning programs in a recent issue of Bride's found none of them to be a significant advance on printed wedding planners. While those who prefer using computers to pencil and paper may well prefer them, at prices ranging from $29.95 to $49.95, they are more expensive than the planners that sell for $20 or less, and a lot more expensive than a blank notebook that can be used for the same purpose. For the computer-adept, the prospect of preparing a newsletter to keep family and friends apprised of wedding plans is not daunting. Such a newsletter would be especially helpful when a lot of people are coming from out of town, says Bratten. The ones she has seen typically include information on places to stay, travel directions, wedding events and arrangements, and information on local sightseeing from time not devoted to wedding festivities. "We find that readers are using computers as a tool for organizing and as a tool for communicating," Bratten adds. "Vendors, too, are beginning to use the computer to advertise their services." Recently Alan Fields was browsing one of the on-line wedding planning newsgroups that have mushroomed in the last year or so and found an entire catalog of bridesmaid's dresses issued by Watters & Waiters of Dallas. As co-author of the self-published book, "Bridal Bargains" (Windsor Park Press, Boulder, Colo., $11.95 paperback), Fields has his own home page on the Internet, on which he posts updates, corrections, and letters-from readers. Fields sees the newsgroups, also referred to chat lines and bulletin boards, as the most innovative use of computers. "The Internet newsgroups are an uncensored look at what's really on the minds of today's brides and grooms," Fields says. While the opportunity to "chat" with other couples is a great idea, it is not always easy to make contact. Still, one bride is depending on a friend who is writing to Mexico City to get the name of a company that can supply handmade Mexican paper for wedding invitations," says the bride-to-be. "When she has the name, she will e-mail it to me. If the Internet didn't exist, I would have to telephone, which is more expensive and takes more time and effort." These are the' answers to today's New York Times crossword found on Page B7. Brides Attention, brides-to-be!

CAUSES OF TOOTH DECAY Although the process of tooth decay Is unbelievably complex and involved, there are three necessary conditions. To minimize decay, you must alter the conditions that promote this common disease activity. (1) Bacteria-The warm, moist interior of your mouth Is a rich environment for bacteria to develop and prosper. Bacterial species that digest sugar are thought to be especially responsible for tooth decay. (2) Food for bacteria - To survive and reproduce, bacteria need nourishment. Decay-producing bacteria need a particular kind of food - sugar, In any of its forms. Since of modern society is rich in sugar, tooth decay is .sometimes described as a "disease of civilization." (3) Tooth susceptibility - The teeth of children and adolescents are generally more susceptible than those of adults. Heredity also plays an important role, but there are very few people who have teeth that completely resist decay. Certain diseases and conditions that occur before birth or In childhood can increase susceptibility to decay. • * * * Prepared as a public service to promote better dental health.
