Serving as maid of honor was a sister of the bride, Loretta Lindner. She wore an orchid lace-over taffeta formal with double net skirt. Mrs. Fred Budzesz, Chicago, another sister, and Mrs.Mary Ann Bliesener, a sister of the groom, wore formals of nile green and yellow respectively. All three attendants had matching gauntlets, net hats and carried bouquets of white and tinted carnations.


A cousin of the groom, Alan Meyer, served as best man while Fred Budzesz, brother-in-law of the bride and James Lindner, her brother were groomsmen.


A reception was held in the afternoon at the home of the bride’s parents. Dinner and supper were served at the parish hall. Later in the evening guests attended a dance at the Silver Dome.
