But this season, when the Cap

came known in simplest fashion
and were followed almost immedi
ately by the date of the wedding.
The war, of course, is responsible
for the hastening of the ceremonies
and also for their simplicity,
_ though the fatigue of an elaborate
wedding, as well as its impossibil
ity when exclusive circles are
broken by the summer flittings, is
rarely sought from June until Sep
tember by even the tnost ambitious
and energetic bride. So there will
be few church weddings among
J.he July bride's and those will be
as simply and delightfully in har
mony with the informality of sum
mer functions as possible. The
marriage of Miss Elizabeth Hard
ing and Mr. Frederick Prince, jr.,
which was celebrated yesterday at
St. John s Church in Lafayette
square, nas a charming affair and
the reception afterward at .the
bride's hone was staged in such a
bower of summer blossoms and
cool breezes that it seemed like a
garden ceremony after all with the
bride herseli a lovely flower inI
her perfect blond beauty.
Another summer church wed
ding will be that of Miss Dorothy
Shuey and Mr. Christopher Smith,
of Norway. which will take place
at noon on Thursday, August 16,1
at St. Matthew's Church, and will
be followed by a reception. Miss
Shuev, who has been tremendously
popular in Capital society since her
debut, and has ers ed as attendant
at many weddmg parties, will
make a strikngly beautiful bride .
and her wedding will undoubtedly'
show more than a few touches
of the charm and originality for
which she is noted. Miss Fran
ces Effinger and Mr. Shackelford
Miller, jr., will have a simple home
wedding at the residence of the
bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.
Frederick Effinger, on the after
noon of August i. at 5:30 o'clock.
But a large reception will follow
when the hosts of friends of the
popular voung couple will have an
opportunity to greet them. Mr.
Miller will have completed his
course of training for the Officers'
Reserve Corps at Fort Myer, but
his plans will necessarily depend
- upon the trend of the war. Miss
Effinger is a favorite in the young
er set and with her sister, Miss
Katherine Effinger, has entertain
ed extensively for the brides of
her set for the past two seasons.
One of the first Washington
girls to have a wedding at the
country estate of her parents is
Miss Edith Blair, who will become
the bride of Lieut. Commander
Adolphus Staton, U. S. N., on July
28. at Falkland. the Blair home at
Silver Spring. Md. The ceremony
will be quietly solemnized in the
presence of the immediate families
only, but a reception will follow
and visions of such a function on
the lovely terraces of Falkland
promise one of the smartest and
most deliehtful events of the
season. The last of the summer
weddings to date will be that of
Miss Marie Eugenia Smith and
Lieut. Commander Hollis Taylor
Winston. '. S. N., whose engage

- the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs.

The bride was very lovely in a gown
of white satin and tulle simply fash
