    Nope. Certain couples in my family had shotgun weddings, so there really aren’t any good pictures.

    We had a table with our grandparents, parents and siblings on it. I was super excited because that one in the silver frame in the bottom left is my dads parents wedding, I wasn’t even sure the pictures exsited anymore, they were super dirt poor when they got married and the picture is a 1950s instant camera picture, so super awful quality. I never knew my dads mom and my grandpa died when I was little but it was still special to have their picture too.

    @nicolebug:  I personally love this idea but don’t think I could pull it off…. my parents got married FAST in my grandparent’s living room and didn’t have any professional shots….. my fiance’s parents had a shotgun wedding (he was already cooking in the oven!) and also don’t have any real professional shots…… both sets of grandparents are from out of the country and i doubt we’d be able to get our hands on any of those pictures – IF they even exist.  But I love the idea.  I found a picture online of my wedding venue on Style Me Pretty, and the bride did something similar and I think it’s so cute!

    I wish I could post in here but I don’t have any of the pictures accessible to scan into my computer. We have my grandparents album from 1953 and my parents (who are divorced, but still) in 1984. I honestly look at the pictures all the time. I love them. I almost forgot, we also have a picture from my great-grandparents back in.. the early 1900s. My great-grandmother was born in 1900 so it must’ve been in the 1920s. We don’t have an album just a portrait that hangs in our family wall collage in the family room.

    I would have liked to do something like that, but my parents are divorced, so it would have been weird. 😛

    We had the family wedding pics set on the mantle of our reception site. It was a huge hit- everyone loved it and my grandmother said that I will never understand how much that meant to her- she felt so special.

    I wish I could do this, but both SO & my parents’ marriages didn’t last. I would love love to have the older ones though. One set of my great great grandparents (I think) died within minutes of eachother, which I think is a story of true love. Even my SO loves that story. I think the old poses with chairs are so static… I have many old family photos like that, can someone please smile?… Haha you would think all the people in the early 1900’s were forced to marry.

    I am going to have wedding photos as well… but not sure how many, yet!! I have photos (but not on the computer) of my parents, both of my grand parents…my fiance has never seen a wedding photo of his parents, so we will have to ask them if there is one hiding somewhere. We also have to check and see about his grandparents’ wedding photos!!

    @nineteen87:  Im a huge history buff so just a fun fact; 

    Dental hygeine and oral health were not very common or practiced much back then. Therefore alot of people had really bad teeth.

    Photography also took a little longer than today; they couldnt just snap a button and be done. People often had to stand or sit for a long period of time making smling that long uncomfortable- hence why alot of pictures arent showing pearly whites!!! 😀

    @nicolebug:  I love your mom’s wedding dress! It doesn’t look like the 80’s dress I always picture.
