Wussow, Betty L. (Marriage - 22 Oct. 1955)

Miss Betty L. Wussow, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Wussow, became the bride of William P. Bauer, son of Mr. and Mrs. William A. Bauer of Colby, in a ceremony performed by Municipal Judge Kenneth A. Pucker in his chambers at Marshfield Saturday at 12:30 P.M. Attending the couple were Miss Norma Wussow, the bride’s sister, Morris Wussow, the bride’s brother, Mrs. Bette Bauer of Rockford, Ill., sister-in-law of the groom, Arvilla Ross of Edgar, Albert Bauer of Rockford, Ill., the groom’s brother, and Bruce Wussow.

A tulle yoke filled in the wide portrait neckline of the bride’s gown. A mandarin collar, like the bodice and long sleeves which ended in tulle pleats, was made of Chantilly lace. The lace motif was repeated in the ruffles of her skirt. Pearls and rhinestones studded her half-hat of lace, which held her fingertip veil.

The bridal bouquet was of red and white roses.

The bridal aides were dressed in gowns made in the same design with lace bodices and jackets, and skirts of nylon net over taffeta, embellished with net ruffles and lace inserts. Turquoise dresses were worn by the bridesmaids, and the maid of honor in shrimp. All carried colonial bouquets of yellow, white and turquoise carnations, and wore headdresses in colors matching their gowns.

For the day’s events, Mrs. Wussow chose a charcoal dress with black velvet trim and accessories to match. Mrs. Bauer wore dark blue with black accessories. Their flowers were corsages of pink roses and white carnations.

The new Mr. and Mrs. Bauer received their guests after the wedding at a reception at the home of the bride’s parents. Supper was served to 150 that evening, at St. John’s parish hall, town of Wein, and a dance was held later in the evening, at the Trianon Ballroom.

Both the bride and the groom are graduates of the Colby High School and the groom served four years in the U.S. Navy. After a trip to the western states, they will make their home in Marshfield, where they are employed. The groom is a salesman for the Singer Sewing Machine Co. and the bride is employed by the General Telephone Co.

Wedding guests were from Milwaukee, Mishicot, Neillsville, Wisconsin Rapids, Wausau and Rockford, Ill.
