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 <

Although the marriages of Mad Men may not last, this Mad Men inspired wedding is vintage, classy, and timely. That DRESS! That SKINNY TIE! Pinch me, it must be 1964.

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!

Today is my parent's Silver Wedding Anniversary. This picture was taken after they got married at New York City Hall. 25 years of marriage is an extraordinary achievement especially for todays standards. And after raising tripletts, plus two other children, our family is anything but ordinary.

Awesome. I love that your mom wore black to her wedding! I also am genuinely concerned for the person on the right who appears to be passed out. I hope he or she lived through the party to see these last 25 years too.

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.

The problem with vintage cars is that sometimes at very clutch moments you realize why we don't drive cars like these anymore...

This is a picture of my grandparents' wedding in 1949. Although they have been divorced for nearly 40 years, they both died in 2011, only a half year apart.

Thank you for sharing this story and great photo with us! At the risk of sounding irreverent, I'm pretty sure I know what your grandfather was thinking when this photo was taken.
