Law and the Ladies' Bridge Club

In John Berendt's novel, Midnight In the Garden of Good and Evil, there is a description of a ladies' bridge club, the most exclusive in Savannah, which followed a rigidly prescribed procedure.  Snacks, glasses of  water, etc. were served at precisely-determined time intervals.

What is it about this law that is attractive to those upwardly-mobile young women?  Somehow, the rigid law gives them identity, tells them who they are.

The law can have that function.
