Las Vegas wedding June 17 1967

Men's pre-wedding party.  Groom looks worried.

The bachelor party before the wedding

There was an old saying back then that when you went to get your wedding license at the Las Vegas court house there were two lines, one for getting divorces and one for getting married.  We were in the marriage line, 50 years ago today, June 17, 1967.  It seems that time has passed quickly and the current saying that is, "What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas" still applies.  The Las Vegas wedding has had "stay power."  

 The actual wedding picture has become so faded that I put a little snapshot on to show the true color of a bright pink wedding dress.  Girls still wore gloves!

The third picture shows a group of handsome guys doing the then traditional pre-wedding party.  The groom looks worried because there was no guessing what might happen to him at that party and after a wedding!  Can you identify some of those men?

It has been a good 50 years, Rodger W. Duncan!  Happy Anniversary to the two of us!

That is a hot couple if ever I saw one and a pretty tame bachelor party. Congratulations on your togetherness!

Kristin, a visit to Vegas is SO much fun.  We should be there now!

Joe, thanks so much!  The party probably got worse.

Don, I did not notice what you gambled with.  Silver dollars?  Bet lots of those got stolen.  Thanks for the good wishes.

Anita, ditto to what I told Don.  And I hope you are having fun on your visit.

Congratulations and best wishes for good health and lots of happiness! Robert and I have been married 56 years on July 16. July 16, 1961, the temperature in Searcy at 3:30 was 100. And our church wasn't air conditioned. I set foot in the church to start down the aisle, and I felt like I had stepped into a tub of ice water. The heat totally disappeared. And that's about all I remember until the reception at the Mayfair Hotel. But it was a fun day, seeing so many friends. In 50 years, you build a lot of memorable moments, don't you. I hope all of yours from now on are totally enjoyable! Love to you both!

Draxie, I loved your story about your wedding.  I'll bet you had on the lovely long wedding dress with all the trimmings.  We were picked up at the hotel, taken to the court house, and then to a little wedding chapel.  They did provide a picture which has become badly faded.  But we made it and I'd recommend a Las Vegas wedding for saving a lot of money!  Thanks for your comment.

Praful, thanks for your comment.

Myrl, thanks also.  Do you still have your gloves?  I do still have the dress which I may post a picture of.  LOL
