One of the prettiest wedding of the season was solemnized Saturday afternoon at 4 o'clock at the home of the bride's parents, Dr. and Mrs. Charles Thompson, 130 Wellington street south, Hamilton, when their daughter, Gladys Evelyn, became the bride of Mr. Charles W. Wilcox, son of Mr. and Mrs. F.A. Wilcox, 8 Lake Street, Grimsby. The house was prettily decorated for the occasion with smilax, white asters and pink and white roses, and a profusion of palms and ferns. The ceremony was conducted by Rev. Dr. W.M. Kannawin.

The bride was given in marriage by her father, and wore a lovely bridal robe of ivory charmente crepe and Chantilly lace. Her veil, of heavy lace, was held in place by a coronet of pearls and rhinestones, and clusters of orange blossoms. She carried a shower bouquet of orchids, lily of the valley and gysophilia. With her bridal costume she wore white kid slippers and sheer white hose.

The bridesmaid, Miss Lillian Dark, wore a smart frock of mauve georgette and in her hair a gold bandeau. She carried Ophelia roses and valley lily. Mr. Gordon Sutherland was best man.

Mrs. Charles Thompson, mother of the bride, wore a handsome gown of black cut velvet over gold, and a corsage bouquet of red roses.

After the ceremony a buffet luncheon was served, and the table was attractive in pink and white roses and centered with the bride's cake. Mr. Hood played the wedding music.

The groom's gift to the bride was a diamond dinner ring, to the bridesmaid, a lovely amethyst costume ring, and to the best man a pearl tie pin.

After the ceremony Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox left for New York, where the honeymoon will be spent. The bride travelled in a navy poiret twill, a small French hat of brown velvet, brown slippers and hosiery, and a brown fox fur.

Guests were present from Dundas, Port Colborne, Orangeville, Beamsville, Grimsby, Simcoe, Waterdown, Montreal, Toronto, Niagara-on-the-Lake and St. Catharines.
