Two brides in wedding finery are ready for the nuptial service. With a mobile organ (piano accordion) in hand and hearts full of song, they search a tram for the last vital ingredient: two eligible men. From one end of the tram to another and back, there must be a man available! All in white these brides seek out and sing: ‘You were made for loving me’; or ‘ going to the chapel and we’re going to get…’. If that doesn’t woo you, how about meeting one of these maidens under ‘blue moon’. They tried out many a man - were even walked down the tram isle with a father, but they disembarked with having tied a knot.
