Buttons on Cards, with marriage in mind Part 3

Now I hear wedding bells!  Thanks for all the creative pairings
you made and shared with us.  
Special thanks to buttondeb–
for the first original matchups–a girl who is prompt with her
homework!   And thank you to a niece who said that maybe I was
on the wrong track because most of the men didn’t seem
marriageable  . . .I’m ignoring that!   This is what I came up with:

First ones down the aisle will be –ta-da!     (click to enlarge–at your
own peril–might turn out to be wallpaper!    — all photos

#2 ethereal--she'll be hard to please . . .

#2 ethereal–she’ll be hard to please . . .

#2 Mr. Suit  Hm, he seems to know what he's looking for in life.  Does he have a slight mobster look? Dapper.

Dapper.

 

 

He’s been searching for
a great looking broad like her . . .off to the
nightclubs they’ll go
right after the reception.

 

 

 

 

Save some rice for the DOUBLE WEDDING of the Washington sisters and
the twin Mr. Suaves———-

pretty lady W--let's find someone nice for this lovely woman---how do you like her "bracelet"?

pretty lady W–let’s find someone nice for this lovely woman—how do you like her “bracelet”?

#5 Mr. Suave--whoo-woo, now we're getting into big time.  He's a catch for someone--probably a golf club there?  that's to show he has class . . .

what a pair!

 

 

 

 

and here’s Sis and twin brother:

#7. Sis---not sure what she's doing with her dress--maybe changing into her wedding gown?  I don't recall this activity when they were "courting"

#7. Sis—not sure what she’s doing with her dress–maybe changing into her wedding gown? It seems a little odd.

 

#6 Mr. Suave's twin--can you believe it?  Not quite as good a catch (one button missing from card)

throw some rice!

 

 

 

 

 

 

I saw a couple we know at the wedding in the crowd—it’s tired mother

#3. tired mother

and Dad!!

#1 Dad--this guy seems to be married already from the button booklet.  I assume he's the "Dad" and not the "brother".  Looks a lot like Ronald Reagan

O’Half and I were invited to the next wedding.   Seems he’s a cousin-in-law or something
to a distant great-aunt . . .and so we went.  It was a beautiful wedding and they plan to
honeymoon in Scotland this summer.

#8 Bonnie -- cheery hearty type

# 7.  Mr. Perfect?  well, perhaps not PERfect, but--likes sailing, lives near the city---theatre, the dance . . .cute bow tie

I think “delivery boy” might take a shine to Cinderella girl—-he’s young enough–they
can watch Disney movies together.  After all, “Frozen” was a pretty entertaining movie.
And they can raise 101 Dalmatians.

#9 delivery boy--I think he's carrying a parcel, and I think he has a cute dog at bottom of photo, too. Delivery boy, but might be 18 or 19?

#9 cinderella --going to be hard to find someone reasonable in that getup

And what about nice guy with flyaway tie—#3?   He was able to turn the head of
Miss Sniff (#4)

#3 Nice guy with flyaway tie.  Not bad.  Pipe smoker---will need a girl who just "loves a man with a pipe".  what's that black think out in the water?  hey--is that eye shadow?  still, cute

#4 sniff--probably another hard to please

and

 

 

 

 

You have already guessed who ended up
with “Sly” #8, haven’t you?  Who else but
“Looking for Fun”?

#1. looking for fun

#1. looking for fun

#8. sly--does not have your best interest in mind

#8. sly–does not have your best interest in mind

 

 

Oh, no!  Trouble ahead
with these two!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Putting away my calculator, I figure that
leaves us THREE people on the button
cards unhitched.  And do you know my
solution??

***#4. Bachelor—————–remains a bachelor.  Or, taking a hint
from the reader “Booksilver” in a comment—he might end up with
a graphic lady from a package of snaps!  See the old post “On the way
to a button post” October 3, 2011.  What a memory, Booksilver!  And
I would put my money on miss “Koh-i-noor” with that snap in
her eye!!  They’ll have a time, eh?   So, maybe he doesn’t remain a
bachelor—and we combine posts!!  Maybe someday button children
will be cousins to snap children!  Wait, let’s see how does that work?
The brown-eyed snaps have the blue-eyed buttons  only one in
four times?—something to do with growing pole beans as I recall.
Let’s leave that for another day!

Anyway–I’m left with . . .
two women, #5. Orange Coat and #10. Blue Anchor.

I think they become a “Boston Marriage.”

There! now I’ll put away all these cards!

    You put the pieces together very nicely! And I love the idea of multifastener (or is it bifastener?) families. Very modern!
    Now what’s the next puzzle?
