Pieter Brueghel Elder and Younger


Someone mentioned in class today another painting called "The Peasant Wedding" which was of the outside of the wedding. This painting was painted by Pieter Brueghel the Younger (the oldest son of Pieter Brueghel the Elder) after his father died. Are there any clues or things in the painting that hint that it is the same wedding that was portrayed by Brueghel the Elder?

The bride is wearing almost exactly the same thing and is in the same position-- though she may have gained some weight...
