Simply Beautiful

June 12, 1994|By Vida Roberts | Vida Roberts,Sun Fashion Editor

The ceremonies that mark the transitions in our lives are set apart by the effort and care we take to print them in memory. At a wedding, every blossom and leaf that will grace the tables is considered. Music is selected from strains that will forever evoke the moment. Food and drink are lavished upon the well-wishers in a spirit of generosity that will long be remembered.

The bride may choose to outshine the decorations and flowers, or to keep her look as simple and quiet as the language of her centuries-old marriage vows.

It is the bride's day and not a gesture will go unnoticed, even if the dress she wears speaks of elegance in a whisper.
