DrpepperPhD says: "My grandparents got married in the '40s. My grandfather was an engineer and worked for NASA, and he was a real do-it-yourselfer. He built a house for his wife and children from the ground up. My grandmother passed away from cancer about 8 years ago, and my grandfather passed on this year. To me, they've been the perfect example of a beautiful, happy marriage."

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!

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.

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!

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."

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.
