Our parents' marriages are often our go-to relationship models (for better or worse).
With that in mind, HuffPost Weddings asked our readers to share their parents' wedding photos to celebrate the couples who came before us. Click through the slideshow below to take a look, then add your parents' wedding photo.
Submitted by Ashley Hayes: "We've been getting ready for my upcoming wedding. (9.29.12) My mom and dad, David and Suzann had a quick low key wedding back in 1986. Their low key, slightly non-conventional wedding might make you underestimate what they've become, but don't. Their marriage has taught me so much about the woman, wife and friend I want to be...maroon dress and all."
