HOW TO GET MARRIED. Description of the Wedding Customs of Polite Society. Too 'Wedding lircnlcfnKt in England and America—How to Announce the En- ?rar;c;ricnt. Issue the Invitations and Conduct the Wedding. 1COPVK1CHT. 1591.1 In London a wedding 1 in liijrli life, or as the French call it "hilif" is a very ir." 1 affair. If we were to road the desci'iptions in. the Court •Journal of one wedding 1 trousseau furnished to a royal princess, or to Lady Gertrude Somebody, we should say with Fielding 1 thut "Dress is the principal accomplishment of men and •women." and as for the wedding 1 cake •which is built at Gunters, it is a sight "to see, almost as big as Mount Blanc. The importance of '-Quntcr" is assured by the ''Epicure's Almanac" published in ISl.'J, and for many years this firm supplied the royal family. "When George HI. was king- the royal tdukcs stopped to eat his pines in gratitude for the sweet repasts furnished t,hem in childhood, but now the Buzzards of 107 Oxford street also are specialists for wedding 1 cakes, Leigh Hunt, writing 1 one of his pretty little essays, described one Trumbull AYalker as the "artist who confined himself to that denomination,," meaning 1 wedding cake. His mantle fell on the Buzzards. This enormous cake and the equally enormous bouquet are the chief distinctive marks in which a London wedding 1 ^differs from ours. To be legal, unless by special license »o'f the archbishop of York, weddings in "England must be celebrated before tvv'elvc o-'elock. . The reason -given for this law is that before 1S2£ gentlemen were supposed to be drunk }f tor that hour and not responsible for their own promise and expression made »t the altar. In France -a singular difference of dress on the .part of the groom exists. He wears •always a dress coat and a white cravat, .-as do all his ushers and immediate 'Iriends. It looks very strange to English and American eyes. The wedding 1 brc.alt.fast in England is •often a sit-down affair with speeches. It is not followed in our country often; perhaps it is well to omit the speeches. And now, how does a "wedding begin? As for the premonitory symptoms, they are in the air for several weeks. It is whispered about amongst the bridesmaids, it gets into the papers. It would be easy to write a volume, and it would be a use- iul volume if it brought conviction to the hearts of the offenders, on the •vrrong done to young ladies by newspapers who assume without authority to publish the news of an engagement. Many a match has been broken off by such a premature surmise on the part of some not well informed person, and the happiness of one or more persons injured for life. Young people like to approach this 'anost important event of their lives in a •great mutual confidence and secresy, -consequently society newspapers should be very careful how they either report an engagement or declare that it is "off." Sometimes rumors prejudicial ••to the gentleman are circulated with.•out sufficient reason, and of course, annch ill feeling is engendered. The first intimation of an engagement should come from the bride's mother, and the young bride fixes the day of her wedding herself. Then the father and mother or guardians of the young lady issue cards, naming the clay and hour of the wedding. Brides often give the attendant maidens their dresses, or if they do not do this, they suggest what they shall wear. ' The groom gives the bridesmaids lockets, bracelets or rings, and presents •each of his ushers with scarf pins or studs, something by which he shall re- jnembcr the daj'. The fashion of groomsmen has passed -away, and the happy man is only attended by a "best man," one friend at "the altar who holds his hat and othcr- "wise sustains him. •The bridesmaids still hold their own, -although a pretty fashion has been introduced of a "Lady of Honor," who •proceeds the bridal procession into the •church. Six ushers generally precede the 3>arty into the church, after having 1 ^seated the guests. • These are generally Hollowed by six bridesmaids who walk two and two. INO one wears a veil but 3he bride herself, who enters on her father's arm. The bridal dress is of white with. long train; the veil of tulle or real lace, must be fastened with orange blossoms. But all this may be varied if the bride chooses, and a traveling 1 dress and bonnet substituted. Young 1 widows who marry a second time must not wear white or veils. The fact that the bride is in white ' satin and often with low neck and ; short sleeves, and the groom in full .morning-costume, is much'criticised in , .France. * The invitations to the wedding are •very simple and explicit: ^ HTC. AND MSS. CHAPMAN Z requests tho pleasure of your company ~ at the marriage o£ their daughter I" I to Mn. GERAJ.D Firz GERALD on Thursday. Juno 16. at Twelve O'clock 'St. Peter's Cnurch. Another card is inclosed to those who :are asked to the reception, f After these cards we out the fiancee "annst not appear at the opera, the the, :a1*r or balls. . 5Cn asking a young lady to be her •bridesmaid the bride is supposed to be actuated by feelings of relationship or "friendship, although fashion and wealth. " and other considerations often influence these invitations Each, bridesmaid is ,. expfected to give a handsome present! The groom asks men of his own age and of his intimate acquaintances. They must be unmarried men, and are expected to manage all matters at the church. Music should play softly through the preparatory entrance of the. family. The mother of the bride and her nearest relatives precede her into the church and arc seated before she enters, unless the mother be a widow and give the bride away, a very toxiching and beautiful ceremony. After the ceremony, which should be conducted with great dignity and composure on all sides, for exhibitions of feeling in public arc in the worst possible taste, the officiating clergyman shakes hands with the young- couple and congratulates them. The bride takes her husband's ris'ht arm a.nd they walk down the broad aisle without recognizing anyone in the church to their carriage at the door, followed by the bridesmaids, the ushers, the family, and drive home to stand under a floral bell and to be congratulated. The bride's mother yields her place as hostess for the nonce, and is addressed after the bride. After two hours of receiving the bride retires to change her dress for a traveling suit, which may be of any color but black. She comes down with her mother and sisters, meets the groom in the hall, and dispenses the flowers of her bouquet to the smiling maidens, each of whom struggles for a flower. Then occurs the farewell, a scene of mingled tears and smiles. The horses and driver and footman of the carriage which is,to drive the happy pair for the honeymoon are all dressed with white favors and flowers, and. as they drive off. rice is thrown after them and an old slipper. In England the happy pair spend the honeymoon at some house, a friend's house presumably lent for the occasion. However, in this land of comfortable hotels, an agreeable and quiet apartment can always be secured. After returning to her home the bride should advise her friends by card of the davs on which she will receive them. To persons not invited to the wedding the parents of the lV bride send announcement cards. Dinners to the young pair succeed each other in rapid succession. For the first three months the art of entertaining is stretched to its uttermost. If the wedding occurs in the evening, then the groom must wear the dress coat and white tie. A widow in marrying again should not use the name or initials of her late husband. If she was Mary Steward and had married Mr. Hamilton, and, being his widow, wishes •> marry Mr. James Constable, her cards should read: MR. AND MRS. STEWARD request tho pleasure of your company at tho marriage of tbeir daughter, JlAKY STEWARD HAMILTON', 10 MR. JAMES CONSTABLE. Or, if she is alone, she can invite in her own name as Mrs. Mary Steward Hamilton, or better still, a friend sends out the cards in her own name with simply the cards of Mrs. Mary Steward Hamilton and of the gentleman whom she is to marry. If a wedding' is to be celebrated at home, the space where the bridal party is to stand is usually marked off by a ribbon. The clergyman comes down in his robes before the bridal pair, they face him, and he faces the company. Hassocks are prepared for them to kneel upon. After the ceremony the clergyman retires from his coigne of vantage and the bridal party.takes Ms place, standing to receive their friends' congratulations. Should there be dancing at a wedding, and it is not a bad old custom, particularly in the country, the bride must open the first quadrille, dancing with the best man, while the groom takes out the first bridesmaid. As for showing the wedding gifts, that must bo left to individual taste. No friend should be deterred from sending a small present, one not representing a money value, because other and richer people can send a more expensive gift. Often the humble offering- is a much more enduring and useful souvenir. Any gift which betokens a long and predetermined interest in the bride is the most flattering. The custom of giving bridal gifts has become an outrageous abuse of a good thing. From being a very pretty custom, one which, had as its base the good reason of helping the young couple to begin housekeeping, which is still observed in Holland and tho north, by presents of bed and table linen and the necessary furniture of the house, it has become but another form of ostentation. There gets to be a rivalry between the families; the publicity of the •whole thing, the notoriety and extravagance, could well be rebuked. The wedding 1 breakfast in America is a stand up affair, and it is proper to serve every delicacy, ,such as salads of chicken and lobster, boned and truffled turkey and pheasants, pati of game, cold partridge, pate de foie gras, terrapin and oysters, ices, creams, jellies and fruits, champagne, claret and punch. The bride sometimes cuts the cake and. allows the young people to search for a ring. The prettiest wedding is one in June at a country house, particularly • if the .bride can walk to church over flowers and under the blossoming trees. The massing of a single flower, the yellow daffodil or the pink and white apple blossom, is a very good idea. If choir boys could sing- a wedding choral outside the windows it would be a happy thought, and it; is a pleasant feature of a country wedding that the faithful domestics who have loved the bride from childhood can assist. In England they count on each wearing a favor made by the bride herself. The cook, the maid, the nurses and the menservants in England always expect a wedding favor and a small gratuity, and in this country all expect a box of wedding cake. At a country wedding, if the day is fine, little tables are set out on the lawn. The ladies seat themselves a:^$u«d, the gentlemen carry refreshments to them. The piazzas can be decorated with autumn boughs, evergreens and flowers, the whole thing becomes a warden party, and cv.'n the lamily dogs should have a wreath, of white flowers around their good old necks. Many brides of to-day leave the bouquet at home, and carry an ivory prayer book to church. The term honeymoon is derived from the German, who drank metheglin, a beverage made of honey, for thirty days after the wedding. The bride cake is not so universally sent about as formerly, but still one finds the little narrow box of cake near the door for each to take. As the ring is the expressive emblem of the perpetuity of the compact, and as the bride cake and libations form significant symbols of the nectar sweets of matrimonj', it will not do to banish the cake altogether, although few people eat it and few wish to carry it away. Brides should send their future address, if possible, with the wedding cards, else if one is invited only to a church wedding, no one knows when or where to call. It is a convenient and pleasant custom for the bridal pair to send out after their marriage cards, having the date of two or more reception days at their new residence. Quiet weddings either at home or in church are very much preferred by some families. The bride is married in traveling dress and bonnet, and drives off in the groom's carriage from a quiet wedding to the honeymoon. People with a large acquaintance can•not always invite all their friends, of course, to a wedding reception, therefore only ask them to the church. These invitations require no answer, but people being at a distance, who cannot attend the wedding, should send their cards by mail to assure their hosts that the invitation has been received. Much ill feeling is apt to be engendered by the distinction which is inevitably made in leaving out the friends who feel that they were entitled to an invitation to the house. It is better to offend no one on so important an occasion. Wedding- cards and wedding stationery should be simple, white without glaze and with no ornamentation at all. It is proper for the bride to have her left hand bare as she walks to the altar, as it saves her the trouble of taking off a long glove. Child bridesmaids are very pretty and very much in favor. These charming children covered with flowers, looking very grave and solemn, are the sweetr est of heralds for a wedding procession. ' The signing of the register in the vestry is not an American necessity as it is in England, but it is now the fashion to have a highly illuminated parclv ment certificate signed by the newly- married pair, with two or three witnesses, the bridesmaid, the best man, the father and mother, and so on, being the attesting parties. The horseshoe is a .favorite emblem for wedding presents, the shape of the table for a wedding breakfast and for floral emblems on that day. June and October are preeminently favorite months. May is a very unlucky month for weddings. It is very troublesome to be married in France, especially if one of the high contracting parties be a foreigner. A certificate of baptism is required, together with that of the marriage of the father and mother and a written consent of the grandfather and grandmother, if either is alive and the parents dead. The names of the parties are .then put up on the door of the Marrie or mayor's office for eleven days. In England there are four ways oi getting married. • The first is by special license, which costs fifty pounds. There is then the ordinary license, which can be procured either at doctor's commons or through a clergyman, who must also be a surrogate and resident of the diocese where the marriage is to take place. Both the parties must swear that they are of age, or if minors that they have the consent of their parents. But to be married by banns is considered the most orthodox as well as most economical way of proceeding-. The banns must be published in the church of the parish in which the lady lives for three consecutive Sundays prior to the marriage, also the. same law holds good for the gentleman, and the parties must have resided fifteen days in the parish, or the knot may be tied at a licensed chapel or at the office of a registrar, notice being given three weeks previously. In America one may go to the mayor's office or to a church and be married with none of these formalities. And alas, the wedding knot can be untied as easily as it is tied. "This train waits twenty minutes for divorces" is a joke founded on fact. "What do divorcies do with theirwed- ding presents?" has been a favorite conundrum of late, especially those sent by the friends of the husband. As the business of getting married is more lenient than it is in Prance and England so is the liberty allowed to an engaged pair greater than it is abroad. In England no young girl is allowed to dine alone with her fiance. There must be a servant in attendance. Nor is she allowed to;go to the theater alone with him, or travel under his escort, or stop at the same hotel, or relax any of those rigid rules which a Spanish duenna would inforce. If an evening wedding takes place in a church those who are asked to the house afterwards should go without bonnets. Catholic ladies, however, must always cover, then- heads in church, so they throw a light lace or mantilla over the head. Should there be dancing- at'a wedding it is proper for the bride to open the first quadrille with the best.man, the groom dancing- with the first bridesmaid. FAITH.

" Soy— " Oh, I used them in my blowgun.'' The little fellow put the nasty, great, griping, old-fashioned pills to a good use. At most, all his internal economy needed was a dose of Dr. Piercers Pleasant Pellets. They are tiny, sugar-coated granules, easy to take, and are gently aperient, or actively cathartic, according to size of dose. As a laxative, only one tiny Pellet is required. The "Pellets" cure Sick Headache, Bilious Headache, Constipation, Indigestion, Bilious Attacks, and all derangements of the Liver, Stomach and Bowels. The " Pellets " are purely vegetable, and operate without disturbance to the system, diet, or occupation. Dr. Pierce's Pellets are the cheapest pill, sold by druggists, because they are guaranteed to give satisfaction in every case, or their price (25 cents a vial) Is refunded. Can. you ask more? If you don't live your religion at home, it won't do your wife and children much g-ood to hear you talk about it in prayer meeting. A Physicians Advice.
