The wedding of Miss Dorothy May, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas May, and Paul Wright, son of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wright, of Alexandria, will take place this evening at the home of the bride's parents, east of Anderson. The single ring ceremony will be read at 8 o'clock by Rev. Alva Lindsay, before an altar arranged in the living room of the home, formed of palms, ferns and other spring flowers. The young couple will be unattended and will take their places before the altar, while Miss Eveylyn Martin plays the wedding march from Lohengrin. The bride will wear a smart frock of peach georgette with rows of black velvet ribbon as trimming on the rather full skirt, with basque waist. A corsage of bride's roses and ferns will complete the ensemble, together with shoes and hose in peach shade. Following the wedding ceremony, an informal reception will be held and a buffet luncheon will be served. A bride's cake, wreathed in cut flowers will form the decoration for the centerpiece of the serving table, where Mrs. Orville Stohler and Miss Velma Bronnenberg will assist the hostess in entertaining. The invited guests include : Mr. and Mrs. Charles Wright, Mr. and Mrs. W.H. May, Mr. and Mrs. I.N. May, Mr. and Mrs. Leslie May, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Wright, Mr. and Mrs. M. May, and Mrs. Mary May, all of Alexandria; Mr. and Mrs. Leonard of Pioneer, O.; Mr. and Mrs. P. May of Shirley, Ind.; Mr. and Mrs. John Hay, of Windfall and Miss Velma Thomas, of Linville, Ind.
