The mother of the bride gives a running account of the events leading up to the big moment. For Judy's engagement to Stewart Goldman is the start of the trials and tribulations that ensue for the Goldmans are the cream of local society and it is push and pull to keep up with them. From the dinner party, to the showers, and on to the choice of linens and silver and china, it is always the Goldman standards that must be thought of; the guest list, the questions of food and drink, and the niceties of the ceremony keep the mother of the bride from thoroughly enjoying the festivities. She manages to have her way where it counts most -- and the wedding's success is her reward. The Jewish accent here is accompanied by a wry feeling for the humor of the situations that give it a Kober-like quality.
