Note: When The Bridegroom Comes is sung when the wedding party members are walking in. Jones sings the old-time version. She talks about the wedding ceremony, including the procession, sermon, and the newlyweds' first kiss. Some preachers marry the couple quickly, others preach for a long time. 'It won't be the first time the groom will have kissed the bride!' she remarks. Bessie Jones says, "I do like to go to weddings -- to see people joined together and getting along."
