Wedding Picture Collection

I’ve put all of my scanned wedding pictures together and am intrigued by their variety.

They are all so different, and yet the same.  Wedding dresses vary as much as the personalities of those who wore them.  Some styles were plain, some elaborate.  They certainly cover more than the strapless gowns today.  The amount of lace stretches from none to layers of it.  Some women wore hats, some veils, some nothing on their heads.  Hair styles range from plain to fancy.  Some are pictured with flower bouquets, some are not.  I’m not shoe crazy, but I am left wondering what some wore on their feet and thinking it may be fun to see all of their footwear lined up to compare them. It seems men’s attire is mostly the same through the years.

If it interests you, look at the collection shown below.   Most of the people in these pictures have been identified in my files by name and relation, but I’ll admit that there are a couple of mysteries.

    I love the first one in the third row. It looks Edwardian, though I can’t be sure.
    This is so neat that you have this many family wedding pictures!
