Ways of expression and description change with generations. What was quite ordinary at one time becomes quaint at another. These are some wordings I have culled from a scrapbook of obituaries and marriages given to the Historical Society by Mrs. Ursula Pray www.landzauber.deen.

There was much jollification at the house, but it was only a primer compared with what followed. Friends of the newly wedded couple determined to give them a send off that would go down in history. Consequently when they came out of the house they found a motley combination of quadrupeds and vehicles waiting to give them the most spectacular transportation possible through the streets to the station. Into the dump truck climbed the smiling couple. The entire vehicle had been rimmed. Attached to it were one horse and two cadaverous Line mules, a la tandem.

The bride has lived around Java for several, years and her splendid disposition has won for her the love of all those who know her and no doubt she will make an ideal housewife and helpmate to the groom.

Weddings in the “Old Times”

Home weddings were different from the usual stylized church ones. This was the case when Florence S.

She had lived in Meyers Castle on West Hill when her father operated the silk mill and was used to ostentation herunterladen.

Like the Terrytown boys and their social club, the young ladies of the community formed such a club called the Theta Delta Club. Unlike the “Boys”, however, their aim was to assist the first member to “embark on the sea of matrimony with every aid in their power.”

Miss Dale was the first to marry netflix ausland. It followed that the group attended the bride on the eve of her wedding and for several days before in decorating the large parlors of her parents with festoons of evergreen, palms, potted plants, ferns and flowers r studio herunterladen mac.

At the end of the south parlor they erected an enclosure to be used for the ceremony.

Fifty guests attended the wedding.

Usually the account of a wedding ended with a long list of the wedding gifts to the couple with the names of the donors. They were omitted in this account or perhaps the scrapbook maker ran out of space or time.
