Dancing Balls

The balls are a big part of Pride and Prejudice because they give the characters a chance to meet and gives the guys a chance to dance with the women to find out if they like them or not.

Wedding Dress

The wedding dress is a symbol to show that all that most people care about is if they get married. Many people didn't consider themselves content until they had a wife or husband to call theirs.

In this book, money is basically a symbol of "love." They wouldn't get married for the right reasons, they would get married just to have money because they thought it was ensure a good life.

Trainwreck

I chose a train wreck to symbolize that the ball was a complete disaster. Mrs. Bennet and the sisters made complete jokes of themselves and so it gave Jane and Elizabeth a bad image.
