lO-Algono, (la.) Upper D«* Molna* thurtday, June 2, John Stegman, Em'burg, New Britt Publisher SEVERAL MONTHS BACK, THIS column decided to help Amy and Emily out a bit with a really practical etiquette guide for every social situation. We got started all right, but we got only as far as how to behave at the supermarket, which is in itself sort of a capsule history of my social life. Nevertheless, I'm undaunted ar.d with June here and a lot of weddings coming up, it might be the proper time to continue the series with a practical etiquette p;uide for -veddings. - o - I HAVEN'T BEEN TO A WEDDING for years. The weddings ''ve been invited to were all too far away for mo to attend. The ceremonies near enough so that I might cqnceivably go to then never did come forth with any invitations. So, you see, i am eminently qualified to write on the proper behavior for such occasions. -" o - FIRST OF ALL, WE MUST REMEMBER that a wedding is sort of a stage production, and everybody has his or her role to play. Star of tho show is the brido and her biggest job is casting a. poor unsuspecting guy to play opposite her for the big occasion. This is in itself often the hardest part of the role what with Uncle Sam pointing his finger at the boys and the future so uncertain for FO many young people. - o - STAGE DIRECTOR FOR* THZ BIG show is the Mother of the Bride. She has endless lists of things that need taking care of and it is also her role to cry at the wedding. The reason for the tears is usually sheer exhaustion, and/or new shoes and a tight girdle. The role of the Father is expensive but simple. He is expected to keep silent, sober and solvent. - o - NOBODY HAS EVER FIGURED out exact roles for the parents of the bridegroom. The Mother of the groom is expected to provide lists of their side of the family for Invitations and it is also her duty not to be too surprised if the list is pared way down. The Father of the bridegroom Is expected to show up at the wedding maybe- provide a little check for the honeymoon and to refrain from bussing the pretty bridesmaids with too much enthusiasm. - o - IT IS PERFECTLY PROPER FOR the bridesmaids, and often the maid-of-honor to regard the wedding as a scouting expedition. Frequently, there will be a college friend of the bridegroom among the 'ushers who will be fair game for a future wedding. Or they might consider quite carefully some of the wedding guests. The thing is to get in there and catch that bouquet to let everybody know you are eligible. -o - THE CHIEF DUTY OF THE USHERS is to stay away from the punch at both the bachelor's dinner and the wedding so that they can navigate that long, church aisle and still cheerfully converse with the matronly guests hanging on their arm. The Best man's prime responsibility is giving the bridegroom a big shove toward the chancel when the. wedding march begins just in oase the bridegroom gets cold feet. The bridegroom may get to feeling rather unimportant, but just try to have a wedding without one. - o - QUITE A BIT HAS BEEN,WRITTEN ABOUT the etiquette of wedding gifts - whether they should be opened and displayed at the reception or if the loot should be stashed strictly at the bride's home. I say, what's the difference so long as the couple gets the presents ? Amy and Emily both say that wedding gift checks should not be on display at the wedding and I agree with them there. The best thing to do is to run the checks through the bank first to see if they bounce. It they don't there's still time to note the amount in big black letters on the cards. - o - AND AS A FINAL NOTE on the etiquette of weddings wo come inevitably to the matter of thank ypu notes. There's lots of things a bride would rather b° doing on her honeymoon than aunt Sophia the bride thank you it is not only understandable, it is forgiveable. But if she really wants to be proper, I might usuggest a good time to write those notes might very well be in the waiting room of the hospital just before she goes in to have her first baby I - o - DURING THE WEEK OF MAY 29 through June 4, people having birthdays include Nancy Cole, Nell Norton, Edith Welter, James L.
