Overjoyed at this unexpected development, Becky's mother speedily begins planning a backyard wedding accompanied by all the overblown finery her middle-class tastes can dream up of. Always a connoisseur of fine stuff and with her tastes particularly sharpened by time spent in New York city, Becky inwardly shudders at this but keeps silent so as not to hurt her mother's feelings.

They return to New York where Luke's Manhattan socialite mother offers them an all-paid, much-in-demand glamorous wedding at the Plaza hotel. This is the sort of Cinderella-wedding that Becky had always hoped to have. So, despite her dislike of Luke's mom, Becky weakly accepts her offer. Now, unable to refuse either woman, Becky finds herself facing the prospect of having two weddings, on the same date, on different continents.
