These are from my grandparents wedding day in 1960. I always admired their pictures, and thought they were the ideal couple, absolutely beautiful and my grandma was the most perfect bride ever. My wedding gown is similar to my grandmothers as well, which I love.  My husband I got married a week ago and we knew we wanted to recreate some of their photos, both for us and as a gift to my grandparents.  Unfortunately, my papa passed away on Christmas Day in 2014, after battling mesothelioma he contracted from the Navy. He passed away about 2 months into our wedding planning. And I remember the broken look he would get on his face when we talked about the plans, and he’d say “I hope I’m still here to see it…” it broke my heart when he left us…he and my grandmother have always been like an extra mom and dad to me, especially since my dad was never really involved. so not having him there on our wedding day hurt so much….but thesephotos helped to ease the pain a bit, both for myself and my grandma and rest of family who are missing him. My grandma teared up when she saw these. 🙂 ❤️ I love how she was the beautiful bride in the first photos, and she’s now in mine, right alongside me, fixing my veil. And the garter picture was of my grandma, 2 friends And her sister. Mine is with my mom, grandma and best friend. I love them!!!!

The top two are my paternal grandparents’ wedding circa 1952-1953-ish?? Don’t know the exact year. Then below is my parents’ wedding in 1980 (with my paternal grandparents from the previous photos on the left).

Bride2B2016 :  Thats super amazing! I love that you took similar pics.

These photos are great. I love seeing them. I always felt bad for my grandmother who got married in ’41, but didn’t have the white dress or the wedding(couldn’t afford it), but I see there were other brides like her, and it makes me feel better.

Excellent thread. Keep em coming! I don’t have any to hand, have never seen pics of my paternal grandparents’ wedding, and my maternal grandparents were married during the war so she just wore a very plain suit.
