The three bridesmaids, Delores Pozanski, a friend of the bride, Lucille Augustine, a friend of the bride, and Arlene Erdman, cousin of the bride, were attired in satin formals with net yokes in green, orchid and gold, respectively, with satin sweetheart bonnets to match. All four wore a two-strand pearl necklace, gifts of the bride, and their bouquets consisted of garden flowers.
