Mandel, Doreen (Marriage - 25 Sept. 1947)

Miss Dorene Mandel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Mandel, Colby, became the bride of Jerome Michlig, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Michlig, Curtiss, before the nine o’clock nuptial high mass at St. Bernard’s Catholic church on Thursday, Sept. 25. The Rev. Francis Brockman read the marriage services and sang the high mass.

The bride wore a gown of white satin made with a sweetheart neck line, long sleeves with shirred lace over the wrists. The full skirt was trimmed with lace and ended in a graceful train. Her lace edged finger tip veil was caught to a seed pearl head dress. She carried a bouquet of red roses.

A sister of the groom, Miss Mary Ann Michlig, as maid of honor, and a sister-in-law, Mrs. Lavern Michlig, as bridesmaid, wore frocks of rose and fall blue, respectively. They were styled identically with off the shoulder necklines, short puffed sleeves, full skirt with bustle back. They wore wreaths of red roses in their hair. They both wore a string of pearls, gifts of the bride.

Attending the groom were John Kobs, cousin of the bride, as best man, and Lavern Michlig, brother of the groom.

Both mothers wore corsages of red roses and white gardenias.

Following the ceremony a reception was held at the home of the bride’s parents, where dinner and supper were served to 20 guests. A three tier wedding cake centered the bridal table and white, rose and blue streamers were combined in other decorations.

In the evening a wedding dance was held at Walter’s pavilion, Colby, Wis.

Mr. and Mrs. Michlig are at home with the bride’s parents. The groom is employed at Mr. Mandel’s cheese factory.
