Brides put in a lot of effort to look stunning on this important day: trying on a bunch of dresses, doing test hairstyles and makeup, and getting up as early as possible on their wedding day. And all of these worries about their look don’t just concern modern girls. Our grannies also did their best to knock everyone’s socks off with their beauty. Fortunately, they had a tradition of wedding photo shoots as well, thanks to which we can see at their looks today.

Bright Side couldn’t miss the nostalgic posts from Reddit users who shared their grandmothers’ photos from before they finally got to say, “I do!” As a bonus, we found a wedding photobomb that dates back to 1927.

I don’t care what anyone says, most of these are definitely still in style. The silhouettes, the sleeves, the fabrics! All exquisite! Sure, you see “modern” or “simpler” options in stores, but I would wear a lot of these. Shall I mention my dress had a 40s vibe and the venue + music as guests came in was from the 30s. Check out Milky Way Farms in Pulaski, TN. Many are outdoor, but we liked the charm of the inside of the 1930s mansion, built by Mars candy founder. If you want to listen to some dreamy music from that era, check out Al Bowly, The Ink Spots, or Ruth Etting.


The women from 1935 looks really good, very attractive women!


That's amazing, I wonder if my granny has pictures like this
