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.

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!

Well, wedding close to sea, I presume. The taped lower right-hand corner tells me this photo has seen a lot of love over the years. Very cute!

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!

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.

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 parents had my older half-sister in their wedding, she and mom had "mother-daughter" vows. My mother made her dress (it weighs fifteen lbs), my dad made his garb and my elder sister's.

These are my grandparents, Glen and Dody. They met and married shortly after he returned from WWII. Their marriage lasted over 60 years before he passed away in the summer of 2011. I just love every single one of the pictures of their wedding, it's just so classic and beautiful.

Dig in, newlyweds. You don't know it yet, but the next 60 years are going to be just as sweet! Thanks for sending in such a great picture.

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