Wartime Weddings

The uncertainty of wartime often drew couples together. Not knowing what the future held led to living in the moment, but it also caused many to dream of a future, one with marriage and family. Wartime weddings had a unique character. Shortages and rationing usually meant a much simpler affair; some wedding cakes were even the products of a community pooling of sugar.
