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 <

My grandpa was a photographer. Instead of throwing rice, the guests used the flashes from their cameras.

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!

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.
