On Sensible Weddings

"The most fashionable marriages of this season are the simplest. Several of the ton have been married within ten days without bridesmaids or groomsmen, without cards, receptions, or display. The parties drive up in a single coach, dressed in a travelling costume. The sexton takes the place of ushers. Unattended, the parties step from the coach to the alter. At the conclusion of the ceremony, they retire to the coach, are driven to the station, and comment their bridal tour. This sensible method promises to be popular and general."
~ Godey's Lady's Book and Magazine August 1872
