Mike offers a denim outfit to whoever can rename Sylvia's Separates. Len refuses to invite Stanley Fairclough to the wedding. Elsie spends a week's wages on a new dress for the wedding. Rita asks Mavis to be her bridesmaid - she is thrilled. Suzie tries on Elsie's new dress. Albert the dog jumps up at her and covers the dress in tar paw-prints. She tries to wash it off before discovering the dress is dry-clean only. Len and Rita meet the vicar, Reverend Smedley, to talk over the wedding. Hilda is angry to discover that the Ogdens have been invited to drinks after the Faircloughs' reception but not the actual reception. Len plans a stag-night. Suzie finds a home for Albert but she doesn't know what to do about the dress.
