Alice "Nanna" Welenc and Elizabeth Welenc with Alice's wedding photo on the table to the right of Elizabeth. (You can see a larger version of it below.)

This was Alice's wedding bill for her wedding here at the Hawthorne Hotel. A wedding in 1948 certainly cost many fewer dollars than it does today. According to an inflation calculator, $330 in 1948 is worth about $3,000 today. Unfortunately, it seems that the rate of inflation for weddings has been much greater than inflation.

To get a better look at any of these photos, simply click on them.

Claire and Tom Welenc

Mother-of-the bride, Claire Welenc, had her wedding here as well, as you can see in the photo above. The tablecloth on the table in these photos was made from her wedding dress.
