GOOD 1950 film with Spencer Tracy as father of 20 year old daughter (played by 18 year old Elizabeth Taylor) who is getting married. Definitely a period piece when the father/family of the bride was one who put on/paid for all the marriage elements - but after when bride's came with a dowry. As it says on film cover box 'The Bride gets the thrills! Father gets the bills!

The expensive marriage ceremonies keep growing, especially when the couple decide they want a 'church' wedding. Did go to some of those in 50's - BIG stuff.

It was an interesting/amusing period piece film with the interaction between the couple's families and Spencer Tracy dealing with the rising marriage costs,
