Logansport. Indiana, Pharos-Tribuiw By Mary D'Andrea About this time every June society editors get the urge to trade their typewriter ribbons for just one smack at the guy who said, "A June bride is forever a happy bride," or some- tiling like that. He forgot to add that a society editor in June is also happy . . . when July 1 comes. BUT THE WAY THE wedding forms are stacking up on already-cluttered desks, we won't live to see it. Girls really believe that old saying. They think if they don't get married in June, their marriage doesn't stand a chance. At least that's the conclusion we have drawn after writing the umteenth wedding of the week. ACTUALLY, IT'S NOT so bad. Our dreams may find us in a nightmarish maze . . . strangling on yards arid yards of Chantilly lace and tulle . . . drowning in an odorus sea of orange blossoms and lily of the valley . . . typing pages and pages of. wedding • copy . . . measuring pictures of a thousand smiling brides . . .or sorting tons and tons of wedding forms . . . but we'll survive. In spite of that constant ringing in our ears (wedding bells) we'll make it. We always do. ' ' . But what about the brides? This getting- ready-for-a-wedding business is no picnic for them. It's hectic to, say the least. Several have .stopped by the office for wedding forms and information about write-ups, showers and all the'things that go into a newspaper when a girl gets married. Any resemblance between how they, look now and when they're floating down, the aisle in their cut- down size 9 gowns is purely incredible. Finally an acquaintance revealed something that might explain why many brides : to-be have that "I wish it.was all over" look.. She was in a dilemma because' she didn't have all the information required' for the form from which society editors. Compose wedding stories. She phoned her;fiance because they were having an argument, about something or other like how many would ! attend the breakfast. After a short discussion she said she'd rather elope. . . I REALLY FELT SORRY for her. But it was her own fault. When she started planning this June extravaganza, she should have ••told her betrothed to go home-and. stay, there until the day of the wedding. . .... After all, who knows better how to plan a wedding than a girl? She's been, carefully raised by her parents for one reason, to, become a beautiful bride. \ ;. The father of the bride taught "her thrift and is relieved because now another'man will get to pay her bills ,'.•". the mother 'of the/bride taught her-everything else and is relieved because she was beginning to think her little girl would never find a husband ... But this "little girl'-' has been thinking . about her wedding-since she was old enough to don one of.mom's old formals, high heels, and an old white tablecloth for a veil, pick a bunch of dandelions and grab one of the neighborhood boys to march her down the sidewalk to the "church" (the front porch) where -she solemnly pledged her troth to her favorite playmate "until suppertime do us part." FROM THE TIME SHE changed her dolly's diaper and made her first mud pie in the back yard . . . from the time she ironed her first pillowcase to that final fitting of her wedding gown . . . she's had one thought ... to marry a Prince Charming and live happily ever after in a rose-covered cottage. She finds her Prince Charming, he proposes, she gets "the biggest diamond in the world" and they live happily for a while in the ; dream world of the betrothed. Then, the bubble bursts.. They, set:the wedding date. Plans get underway. : Everybody wants in on the act. Hubby-to- be decides to voice his opinion before marriage. And he chooses to voice it on things like the color of .the bridesmaids' gowns. (His-fiancee discovers he's color-blind!) Aunts, uncles and cousins voice opinions after years of silence. . . It's a wonder any of the June couples make it to the altar. But they usually do. And on the big day as they approach the altar of eternal, wedded bliss, many of them probably have a last-minute feeling of panic and the thought. . . "I don't want to get married!" BUT FOR THE TEMPORARILY banished grooms-to-be, here's one comforting thought: you may not have much to'say about how you get married but afterwards you'll have the rest of your life to run things . .'; (like the washer, the dryer, the dishwasher, the.sweeper , . .) Bye for now. Thursday.Evening, June 21,1962. WEDDING CAKE IS SYMBOL OF SEASON 'M<j> -,,>yi'''^VJr -A'i.
