This is my grandparents at their wedding in the early 50s. My grandma was almost 4 months pregnant but still managed to fit into this teensy outfit! The were married until she passed away unexpectedly in 2008. They spend fifty five years together, bickering, laughing and generally being amazing.

Looks like it was more of a tiny squeeze for your petite grandmother to fit in that lovely suit. Beautiful at a turning point in a beautiful relationship!

This is my great-grandfather (Piotr) and great-grandmother's (Magdelena) wedding. They were married in 1907, less 4 years after they immigrated to America from Poland.

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 Canadian Veteran's Affairs website.
