The bridesmaids, Misses Dawn Need and Jessie Bowering, were frocked in pink and lavender velvet frocks respectively, with full skirts, ruched bodices, and long sleeves pointed at the wrist. Their Bo Peep hats were trimmed with tulle and natural flowers, and they carried bouquets to tone. Little Beth Bowering was train bearer, and looked sweet in a full length blue velvet gown, and a silver and blue halo headdress.
