My grandmother and I were married on the same date. Since she passed away and could not attend, we had her picture at the altar.

Delisacrafton says: "My grandparents were to be married October but my grandpa was in the army and couldn't come home because of the Cuban missile crisis. When he did finally come home it was December and they got married. They were married in another city than they lived which was an hour away and they forgot to tell the camera man. A week later they put back on their clothes and took this picture in a photo studio thus being their only wedding picture."

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.

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.

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.

Palita says: "My grandparents' wedding day. My grandfather was wearing a top hat, but sadly I can't find a picture of him wearing it. They remained together for more 50 years until he passed away last October."
