      WEDDINGS.
      Fritz-Rossow.
      A quiet but pretty wedding took place at the residence of the bride's parents, Greenmount, Calvert on August 23 (writes our Grandchester correspondent). The bridegroom was Mr. Walter Fritz (of Plainland) and the bride Miss Warrill Rossow (fifth daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Rossow). Pastor Gossling officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a handsome gown of cream satin charmeuse, with an overdress of lace finished with pearls and tulle. She also wore a wreath and veil. Miss Queenie Rossow (chief bridesmaid) wore a cream silk frock, and an overdress of lace made in pinafore fashion. Miss Fritz (bridesmaid) wore white silk, with a lace tunic. The bride and bridesmaids carried bouquets and wore gold brooches (gifts from the bridegroom). Mr. E. Fritz acted as best man. After the ceremony the guests were entertained at breakfast on the veranda. The bride's travelling dress was of slate-coloured poplin, with a hat to harmonise. The presents were numerous and handsome.

      Fritz-Rossow.   
      The marriage of Mr. Walter Fritz (son of Mr. and Mrs. Fritz, of Plainland) to Miss Warril Rossow (fifth daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Rossow, of Calvert) took place on August 23 (writes our Rosewood correspondent). The bride, who was given away by her father, wore a dainty dress of cream satin charmenese, the bodice made with Raglan sleeves, and with an overdress of lace, finished with seed pearls, tulle, and a cream sash with bead tassels. A beautiful wreath and veil completed the toilette. Misses Queenie Rossow (sister of the bride) and Tallie Fritz (sister of the bridegroom) acted as bridesmaids. Miss Rossow was attired in cream silk, with overdress of lace, relieved with blue. Miss Fritz wore a white silk frock, with tunic of silk lace. Both the bride and bridesmaids carried pretty bouquets tied with satin streamers. Mr. E. Fritz acted as best man, and Mr. R. Rossow as groomsman. Pastor Gossling officiated, and "The Wedding March" was played by Miss Adele Rossow (sister of the bride). After the ceremony between 60 and 70 guests were entertained at a wedding breakfast. A three-tier wedding cake occupied a prominent position on the bride's table. In the evening a dance was held in the large dining room. The presents were numerous and handsome and included several cheques. The bride's present to the bridegroom was a pair of gold sleeve links, inscribed, and the bridegroom's gifts to the bride and bridesmaids were gold brooches set with rubies. [6, 7]
