The weekend is an extra-special one for the Bush family, as Laura and George W. celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary on Nov. 5.

The couple met in the summer 1977 at a friend’s barbecue and tied the knot just three months later. Laura wore a two-toned tan dress for her I-dos that was purchased off the rack. The couple reportedly honeymooned in Cozumel, Mexico, according to ABC 13.
