young bride-to-be, at the
end of her rope,
A
From selecting the colors of

monogrammed soap,
Had the thought that it
might be a wonderful
thing
lb Elope!
All of the choices would
drop out of sight:
Who sits at which table?
Who not to invite? What
gown for the wedding?
What suit for goodbye?
What garter? What
necklace? What shoes do
I dye? Which brides-
maids, which matrons,
and where do they
stand? How fancy the
chuppah? How punky
the band? What year the
Spumonte? What shape
for the ice? What flavor
the icing? What color
the rice?
No wonder this bride-to-be
couldn't be gladder
With nothing to choose but
the height of a ladder.
But . . . What do I wear for
descending each rung?
Should we exit in
silence? Are there songs
to be sung? Who opens
the window? Does he tap
on the panes? Do I toss
him my suitcase? And
What If It Rains!?!
Should he wear his
Reeboks with the wed-
ding tuxedo? When we
get down the ladder,
then where do we go?
Should I order a pizza or

make reservations? And
Bubbie and Zadie will
want explanations.
With these thoughts in
mind, bride-to-be calmed
her nerves.
Selected an entree and
seven hors d'oeuvres.
Registered china in five
Eastern states
And decided to eat off of
Melomine plates.
Grabbed up a wedding
gown right off the rack,
Wrote out the placecards,
and never looked back.
If you ponder this story,
when you want to elope
Then you'll have to say,
"Nope"
And just cope. ■

Traditions

T

he concept of the dowry
dates to Biblical times,
when prospective
bridegrooms were required
to pay their future fathers-
in-law fifty shekels to com-
pensate for the loss of their
daughters' service to the

family.

uringthe Talmudical
period, it became
D
customary for a father to

give his daughter a mar-
riage dowry equivalent to
at least 180 grams of silver.
After the 12th century, a
dowry was set by the bride
and her family and its
amount stipulated in her
marriage contract, the
ketubah.
