What my Grandparent's wore to their Wedding

Recommended Posts

My Grandpa just sent me this picture. I'm not sure what year it is but I know they were young, probably around 18 or 19 and they're in their 70's now. So sweet, just thought I'd share.

Unfortunately my grandparents didn't have any. They were too poor and my grandma got married 2 months pregnant. Yah, I can do math. haha

 

They got married so young back then though.

My grandparents have one wedding photo.. my grandma's story is very sweet. She told me once that her and grandpa saved up their money for months to be able to buy their wedding outfits. Grandma wore a blue suit. and their wedding party consisted of two couples (friends of grandpa's) and she doesn't even recall the wife's name of one of the couples..

 

They had a very happy marriage until grandpa passed away in 1990.. he was only in his 60's. Just makes you realize that yes times have changed but it really isn't about the fancy photos, flowers, and dresses.. it's about your love!

 

Thanks for sharing the photo.

Jaime that is so nice, your grandparents were a great looking couple. I really wanted to wear my grandmothers veil when I was first married but was sad to learn all of her wedding attire was burned in a fire.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
