Alice Lee Roosevelt, Feb. 17, 19062 of 8
This Victorian-era celebutante enjoyed smoking ... in public! After flirting with men, sans chaperon, Teddy's daughter married Republican congressman Nicholas Longworth at the White House without bridesmaids — she didn't want to compete with anyone for attention.
Luci Johnson, Aug. 6, 19663 of 8
Time magazine described 19-year-old Luci's betrothed as such: "Without exception, her seven predecessors as White House brides took husbands who were mature, professionally established, wealthy, patrician, or all four. By contrast, Pat, 23, has a modest background and an uncharted future." Ouch! The marriage was annulled in 1979.

A little more than a year after her younger sister got married, LBJ's eldest married Marine Capt. Chuck Robb in the East Room of the White House. Her husband went on to serve two Senate terms and become the governor of Virginia.

Alice Lee Roosevelt, who married at the White House 65 years before, also attended the event!
Amy Carter, Sept. 1, 19966 of 8
The low-key bride baked her own cake and only told her family of her wedding plans a couple months in advance. The simple and sweet wedding, described as "homespun" by the New York Times, took place at the Carters' home.

Caroline Kennedy, July 19, 19867 of 8

Jenna Bush, May 10, 20088 of 8
If Amy Carter's wedding was home-spun, Jenna's was down-home. The Texan skipped the White House because she wanted something more outdoorsy and less glamorous when she married Henry Hager. When asked about the wedding, the president said, "We're mighty blessed."
