A Wedding of Historic Proportions
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.
