Chapter 25: The First Wedding
Meg and John get married in a simple ceremony in the March home. There no elaborate ritual; in fact, Aunt March is scandalized by the fact that the bride herself is greeting people at the door and running around helping with odds and ends in her gown.
After the marriage, the family and friends celebrate with food and dancing. The crowning moment of merriment comes when Mr. Laurence and Aunt March join up to dance-German fashion-in a circle around the newlyweds.
Aunt March has always seemed rather brisk and impatient, but the wedding festivities give her a chance to "let her hair down" and show that she is capable of having fun in spite of her earlier denouncement of John Brooke.
