GETTING MARRIED THE WAY YOU WANT

A tip-off that (not surprisingly) those innovative, off-beat marriages we've been going to lately -- medieval costumed mountain pageants; hippy-tripping in a cable car up Nob Hill -- are becoming institutionalized, co-opted. And Dobrin and Briggs, like a couple of wedding counselors from Bloomingdale's, have taken the matter efficiently in hand here: suggested music (rock, classical -- whatever will be ""understood"" by the guests); poetry (a wide range, from Sappho to an original by one of the authors, as well as that old standby the Bible); rings (how about bracelets, instead?). It's in the staging they tell us -- and all of it suddenly makes high mass nuptials and vows exchanged under the huppah seem more and more marvelous indeed.
