Weix, Marlene Ann (Marriage - 16 Aug. 1956) 

Miss Marlene Ann Weix, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Lawrence Weix, Curtiss, Route 1, and Irvin Joseph Bach, son of Mr. and Mrs. Mathew Bach, of Medford, exchanged marriage vows Thursday morning, Aug. 16, at St. Bernard’s Catholic church. The double ring ceremony took place before a 9:00 o’clock nuptial high mass, sung by the Rev. Raymond B. Schulz. 

The bride, who was given in marriage by her father, wore a white, floor length gown of lace and tulle. The bodice was of Chantilly lace, designed with a round neck line, edged in lace and dotted with sequins above a net yoke. Lace scrolls, extending to the hip, detailed the nylon tulle skirt. 

Her imported, silk illusion, finger tipped veil was attached to a lace cap, highlighted with tiny pearls and sequins. 

She carried a bouquet centered with a large orchid chrysanthemum, surrounded by small, white and orchid mums and shower of white satin streamers. The rhinestone jewelry which she wore, was a gift of the groom. 

Attending the bride, as maid of honor, was her friend, Miss Adelle Schaefer. The bridesmaids were Miss Phyllis Stacke, friend of the bride, of Milwaukee, and Mrs. Francis Hohl, sister of the groom, of Baraboo. 

Their ballerina length dresses of sheer nylon were flocked with tiny forget-me-nots, over net and taffeta. They were styled alike with modified scoop necklines, edged with lace, tucked bodices and full hoop skirts, accented with white lace. 

The maid of honor wore orchid and carried a basket of green and white mums. Mint green was chosen for the bridesmaids, who carried bouquets of orchid and white mums. Pearl necklaces and ear rings, gifts of the bride, and crowns to match their dresses, completed their attire. 

Miss Diane Staab, niece of the groom, of Dorchester, in a white floor length dress, had a bouquet of mums, which carried out the white, orchid and green color scheme of the wedding. She wore a necklace and bracelet, her gift from the bride. 

Ronald Weix, brother of the bride, was best man; Gerald Stinn, cousin of the groom, of Des Moines, Iowa, and Francis Hohl, brother-in-law of the groom, of Baraboo, were ushers; and Joel Freisinger, cousin of the bride, of La Crosse, was ring bearer. 

Michael Weix, cousin of the bride, of Colby, and Harold Laube, brother-in-law of the groom, of Owen, seated the guests at the church. 

Mrs. Weix attended her daughter’s wedding wearing a navy dress with a pink design and chose white accessories. Mrs. Bach wore an orchid lace dress, with white accessories. Their corsages were of pink tea roses and white mums. 

Both grand mothers of the bride, Mrs. Amelia Weix, of Colby, and Mrs. Louis Henke, of Thorp, attended the wedding. Corsages similar to those of the mothers, were pinned to their dresses. 

Dinner at 12:00 o’clock was served to 60 guests at the Coral room at the Colby Hotel. A reception, followed by a buffet supper at the home of the bride’s parents, was attended by 250 guests. 

In the evening, the bridal couple greeted friends at a wedding dance at Memorial hall, Dorchester. 

Out of town guests at the wedding came from Medford, La Crosse, Stanley, Baraboo, Thorp, Owen, Colby, Dorchester, Neillsville, Milwaukee, and Des Moines, Iowa. 

After a wedding trip to southern states, the new Mr. and Mrs. Bach will make their home on the groom’s farm, near Dorchester. Mrs. Bach, a graduate of the Taylor County Teachers’ College, Medford, will teach again in the Curtiss school.
