D. Macpherson gave away his daughter, who wore a bridal gown of silver lame, made with a draped overdress of ivory mariette, trimmed with silver lace, and caught at the left side with a posy of orange blossoms. The bodice was made in cross-over effect, finished on the shoulders with an orange blossom posy. Her veil was of Limerick lace, and was long enough to form a train. It was held in position with a wreath of orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of cactus dahlias, roses, and car- nations, tied with satin ribbon streamers. Misses Vada Macpherson, Doreen Med- hurst, and Peggy Gough (bridemaids) were frocked alike in blue mariette, made with full skirts, with painted bands, embroid- ered in silver. The bodice of georgette opened over V-shaped vests of silver. At the waist line was a drape, caught with a diamante buckle.
