Vintage snack: A thrifty, spray-painted '70s wedding #Wedding Porn#brides in glasses#brides over 40#short dress#vintage wedding September 8 | Catherine Clark enidjcoleslaw This photo is a testament to what can be done with spray paint, a teeny tiny budget, and sheer will. The bride thrifted her dress too. What I wouldn't do to find that number at a thrift store today. And those glasses. Want. So, enjoy the retro style and check out what Kendra said about her submission: My grama married her second husband in 1971 and inherited eight children in addition to her own three and the foster child they adopted. So, they were obviously on a budget. Her veil is a leftover door screen and a bleach lid, spray painted gold. She bought her gold and blue paisley mini dress at the Salvation Army and her shoes were hand-me-downs spray painted gold. The best part is the bouquet, though — Rememberance Day poppy pins sewn together. I love it and she inspired my bouquet for my upcoming wedding. Do you have vintage wedding photos hidden away?

Those rainbow roses were just so epic the other day I decided I must have them, but I love the poppy bouquet too. Granted because I love the song "Remembrance Day" by B-Movie, but still. Reply Love it! Sent my mom's 60's wedding pics in by e-mail. Very retro. :o) Reply This is a fantastic photo. It totally made me take a moment to reflect on how really fantastic life is. 1 agrees Reply Join the conversation Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
