    WEDDINGS
    KUNST-SAUER.
    A very pretty wedding took place at Mr. W. H. Sauer's residence, Munna Creek, on June 22, when Florence Mabel Sauer, youngest daughter of Mr. William Sauer, of Gympie, was married to Mr. Herbert H. Kunst, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. H. P. Kunst, of Munna Creek. Both the young people were very popular in the district, and their marriage caused a great deal of interest among their friends. The Rev. G. W. Brown, of Maryborough, was the celebrant. Mr. Sauer gave his daughter away, her dainty gown being of ivory crepe-de-chene with long bodice effect, shirred around hips, short sleeves and collar of rows of narrow silver lace. The skirt was scalloped at the hem and finished with rows of narrow silver lace and heavily beaded in silver. A large bow in the front of the skirt was set with silver posies. The bridal veil, kindly lent by Mrs. Elsie Kunst, a sister of the bride; was worn with tulle cap and coronet of orange blossoms, and finished at back with silver roses. Her shower bouquet of white roses was tied with white streamers. While the bride entered on the arm of her father, choir sang "How Welcome was the Call."

    Miss Gladys Kunst made a charming bridesmaid in a dress of coral pink crepe-de-chene, with silver lace godet in skirt, and finished with silver beads. She wore a hat to harmonise. She wore a gold pendant, the gift of the bridegroom. Champagne shoes and stockings finished a very pretty [pretty] costume. The bridesmaid is a niece of the bride. Mr. Alf. Sauer, brother of the bride, acted as best man. While the register was being signed, Mrs. E. Kunst (piano) and Miss Amy Larsen (violin) played "Because."

    Mrs. E. Kunst, who received the guests, was frocked in a lemon costume of embroidered crepe-de-chene. After the ceremony the guests, 85 in all, sat down to a sumptuous wedding breakfast, at which the usual toasts were honoured. During the evening the younger friends of the bride and bridegroom attended and were welcomed by Mr. William Sauer, sen. During the evening nearly 200 guests were present, and a most enjoyable time was spent by all present. The spacious verandahs were utilised for dancing. Over fifty couple took part in the grand march, which was headed by the newly-married couple, followed by the relatives of the bride and bridegroom. Perfect dance music was supplied by Mrs. E. Kunst (piano) and Miss A. Larsen (violin), who were relieved at intervals by Mr. F. Bosel (accordion) and other guests. Between the dances vocal items were supplied by Messrs. F. Bosel, J. Gilchrist, P. Krafft and Mrs. P. Krafft. Mr. A. Sauer made a very capable M.C.,and kept the large number of dancers going merrily until the happy gathering was brought to a conclusion at daylight the following morning. The catering was all that could be desired, and no word short of excellent would do justice to it. The three tiered wedding-cake, which was made by Mr. H. Axelsen, Walker-street, Maryborough, was greatly admired.

    The bride's travelling dress was of cinnamon crepe-de-chene, made with inverted pleats back and front, relieved with mastic vest trimmed with Oriental braid and buttons to tone and with hat to match. The bride's wedding and travelling dress were made by Miss Ivy Mallett, of Gympie. The presents were numerous and costly, and included many cheques. The honeymoon was spent at Noosa.
