I'm not surprised that we don't see many double weddings these days, but they totally remind me of classic films where identities get mixed up or one of the dudes has to coach the other on how to get the girl. Here we have sisters getting married on the same day and not only that… in the same dress! It's fantastic.
Check out the cap sleeves, lace gloves, and flower girls straight out of Jane Austen. Here is what Harley had to say about her submission:
This is a picture of my paternal great-grandparents, Ruth and Horacio (on the right) at their wedding sometime in 1948 in Monterrey, NL, Mexico. On the left is my great grandma's sister Mara and her husband, Santiago. My great grandma and her sister did everything together and even wore identical dresses to their wedding! The only differences were the headpieces and bouquets.
A story that my grandmother told me is that my great grandpa gave my great grandma a promise ring. When she saw it she said she didn't like it because it looked cheap. Upon hearing this, my great grandpa threw it into a field and it was never to be found again. She was a feisty woman. But from what I heard, they loved each other very much. The only mystery in this picture are the two little flower girls. I've asked around with the family and no one knows who they are.
