A Photographer Invited Women Who Got Married Decades Ago to Put on Their Old Wedding Dresses

Leticia Valverdes found a way to take women down memory lane. To do so, she takes photos of them in their wedding dresses. And these photos are so full of precious memories —from laughs to tears. Despite everything that may have changed since their special day, the dresses remain unchanged. And it looks like this experience even made the wrinkles disappear from their smiling faces.

​​Bright Side invites you to meet the women and their dresses, and dive into their wedding memories.
