I'm in the process of tracking down the pictures from each of our grandparents' wedding day as well as both of our parents'. I'm not sure if I'll be able to get all six but I'm going to try my hardest. My FMIL emailed me the scanned versions of two out of the three I had requested and she is still on the hunt for the third (Mr Trail Mix's paternal grandparents' pic seems to have gone AWOL.)
Here's the two she sent me:
The top photo is Mr Trail Mix's maternal grandparents' wedding photo and the bottom is of his parents. Look closely, notice anything similar about the two dresses? Well, they are one and the same. FMIL Trail Mix wore her mother's dress for her wedding, how lovely (and cost-effective) is that?
I'm also particularly digging Maternal Grandmother's colossal tiara (would that be called a crown then? Whatever you call it, it's massive!)
I'm hoping, after the wedding, to take these two pictures, along with the third one that is still missing, and frame all three along with a picture of the family from the Trail Mix wedding. A nice, symbolic way to honor the many weddings throughout the generations of the family, don't you think? And of course, I'll do the same for my family as well (although we're not sure if we can find a wedding pic of my paternal grandparents, research is still being done on that one...) I'm picturing a long, rectangular matte with all four pictures, from oldest to newest set portrait-style.
Will you be displaying family wedding photos at your wedding?
