My Mums schoolfriend married her French Canadian in a very Make do and mend WWII ceremony you can tell its a wedding because someone gave Doris a silver paper horseshoe for luck,they emmigrated to Montreal and had a very happy family.

What a great photo! I was unfamiliar with this tradition, but as submitter Diddleymaz pointed out, it was a Canadian custom for wartime brides to carry silver horseshoes made of paper. You can read more about Canadian War Brides at the <

My Pepere and Memere on their wedding in 1953. I love how smitten my Grandfather looks.

Haha, I love the incredulous look on your grandmother's face! They look like a fun pair!

This is my favorite wedding picture of my Grand Parents Phylis and George. Gramma was definitely a "Flapper" - but was Grampa a "Gangsta"?

Grandpa also apparently had Transitions Lenses before they were even invented! Amazing!

When my great-grandmother got married, her husband's father had just passed and they wore mourning clothes to the wedding. Per family legend, the bride snagged a bright red feather from someone else's hat and defiantly put it on right before the photo was taken!

Sassy great grandmas are the reason us wiminz vote and run for office in these modern times. Thanks!
