Ask me anything   Share your favorite vintage bride...    Glorious, glamorous, lovely brides of days-gone-by including brides on and off the Silver Screen, vintage brides in art and advertising, the girl-next-door and possibly many time-zones away as she celebrates one of the biggest days of her life. This is a celebration of love, people in love and pretty girls in pretty dresses - admittedly, an overwhelming virtual cornucopia of heterosexuality. Some current photos of LGBTQ weddings, people who would have a vintage wedding photo to share if "All men are created equal" really rang true when those words were originally penned. I'm hashtag crazy, so if you have a favorite era or topic (1940s, 1950s, African American bride, gay wedding, illustration, etc.), use the search function. If you have a photo of a favorite vintage bride, please click submit and share! Lastly, I only have rights to a few photos here. I post what I find scouring the web. If you see a photo of yours here and want it removed, please let me know. I'm kind of obsessed and and spend hours on this, including photo retouching and editing occasionally. Kindly link back to me if you share those photos on other sites. Thank you for visiting Vintage Brides! Enjoy!

A submission from thetransgender bride:

Dawn Simmons (1929-2006) was born Gordon Langley Hall. She was the unofficially adopted transsexual daughter of Dame Margaret. Before transitioning from man to woman, he chiefly wrote biographies of women and strongly identified with his subjects. After she had her SRS, she married John Simmons, an African-American garage mechanic 18 years her junior in 1969. While Dame Margaret was pleased with the turn of events in Dawn’s life, one of her great aunts complained: “I do wish Dawn wasn’t marrying a Baptist.”

**Thank you for the submission! xx
