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.

My great-grandparents, John and Claire, were married in the early 1940s and stayed together until his death three years ago. Since then, my mom and her cousin both wore Nana's dress in their own weddings and it's as beautiful today as it was then.

We interrupt your regularly scheduled vintage wedding photos to take you on a stroll down The Cheezburger Network's wedding memory lane! We hope this disproves any rumors that we're all robots here once and for all. (Except me, of course)

Above is John and Ursula, the parents of our own Not-So-Handy-Andy from There I Fixed It! They were married in South Africa in 1983.
