My grandma actually wore a suit for a courthouse wedding.  My grandparents married very young at 16.  They don’t even have pictures from their wedding Frown.  My grandma, on my dad’s side, wore something similar to the above pictures.

You know I really hate to see what they wore then and what we wear now. I mean can you just imagine what our daughters and grand-daughters will wear. My FH and his ex wife were married in 2000 and I think her dress looks like something from the 70’s….I would never wear it but she thinks that their daughter will. I haven’t told her but her daughter told me that there is no way that she is going to wear that dress and that she wants to wear mine because it has “bling”…she’s almost 10. Oh how funny little girls are!!

Here’s my great-grandparents’ wedding photo! (This was probably 1910s or early 1920s.)

Abbyful, your great-grandma was a fashionplate! What a fantastic thing to have!

My mom (the 70s) wore a dress she bought off the rack at a department store. At the last minute, my dad stole a tie off my uncle. Yeah, they were *that* couple!

My grandmother’s dress does in fact look like the 1941 catalogue–white satin and long sleeves!

Don’t have pictures but when my grandmas got married during the late 1940s-mid 1950s, the hair was the same as the pic in the first post but the dresses of choice were completely different. I thought it was interesting that they all (I had 3, only have one left) chose dress suits for lack of a better term where there is the jacket with a shell underneath, and a knee length skirt that matches the jacket with no veil.

My Grandparents were both married in the late 1930’s.  They, too, wore suits with skirts.  I think they were all very good-looking and well-dressed. (I was only able to upload my maternal grandparents photo). 

 @abbyful – Your great grandmother was sassy! 

@photographernico – Thanks for starting this thread!

@abbyful: That picture of your great-grandparents is amazing!  I love her smirk and that veil!

My Grandparent’s wedding portrait, 1904! My Grandmother was 15 years old at the time! It was not unusual to marry so young in those days!

I love looking at wedding pictures from the 20s 30s and 40s. I wonder if wedding dresses from the 1980s will EVER look that elegant.
