The bride’s gown was a ballerina length, white satin covered with net followed with another net and lace trimmed with rhinestones and pearls. A jacket of lace was included. The veil was a fingertip style with a high crown of bead pearls.

The maid of honor, Loretta Micke, cousin of the groom, also wore a ballerina length gown of pink with a net headband. The other bridesmaids, Mrs. Dale Fjelstad, sister of the bride, wore a ballerina blue gown. She also wore a headband of blue net and satin.
