*Love!* That dress is just adorable and so is she!

I don’t have a pic, but mine got married in 1945 while she was living out in Cali, six weeks after she met a cute Marine just back from the Pacific. She wore a dark yellow skirt suit, with a pair of gloves and a royal blue hat. There is a photo (BW, but not scanned yet) and a letter she wrote to her mom back East, in which she described her outfit.

I dont actually have any pictures of either my grandparents or parents on their wedding day.

I have seen a picture of fmil on her wedding day and she looked stunning!

I will post a picture of my grandparents once I go and visit for the weekend. =) I’ll be there tomorrow night.  My grandmother looked beautiful and my grandfather was so damn handsome.

Here’s my gram and grandfather on their wedding day!

And then with my great grandparents on my grandfather’s side!

We had a photo board at our wedding of all of the grandparents & great grandparents:

My gram sadly burned nearly all her photos when my grampa cheated on her and divorced her.

But she was a gorgeous lady her whole life. Very stylish too.

I love that dress as well OP!

I don’t even think any of my grandparent’s weddding pictures exist anymore.  They were married June 14, 1952 when my grandmother was 24, in rosario.  I think my mother told me she wore a dress suit set and a pillbox hat to the courthouse wedding and took the hat off for the church (they have 2 ceremonies: legal and religious).

aw i wish i had a scanned pic of my gramma when she married my grampa.  it was 1949, and she wore a sort of fitted tea-length dress with cap sleeves and i THINK a sweetheart neckline…ivory satin.  my mom wore a jessica mcclintock gunne sax prom dress when she married my dad in 1979.  one of those cotton lace-up bodice prairie styles, lol.

Here is one of my mum & dad after their nikkah ceremony at the National Islamic Center in DC … my mom is a cougar and is 7 years older than my dad! She also had an afro at the time but brushed it out to be formal … haha

@Mrs.Sunflower: Gotta love Asian genes!  She’s actually 40 in the picture – and she had me a year later.  I have to find the picture of her in her western wedding gown she was a fashion designer and made both dresses herself which is why I think the Nikkah gown is completely unlike anything normally worn at a muslim ceremony – haha. 


I am dying over these vintage wedding photos – I absolutely loved the 40’s/50’s style so much. It was so understated but elegant.
