  1. Violet Gruner says

    There was an elegance to the bridal parties. No deep cleavage, no straps, no tattoos on shoulders/arms. A dignity brought to the occasion.

  2. J K says

    Bridal floral crowns were clearly very popular back then

  3. Rebbie Swift says


  4. AW 08 says

    I must be the only one who thinks makeup would really help a lot of these women out. And the style in the 20s for women was so frumpy

  5. Patricia Jones says

    Back when marriage and vows really meant something.
    Men worked to take care of their families and none hurt or
    abused their kids and wives. So sad now that women don't have
    that security and an old woman who is sick and alone must find
    a place to live after being promised so many years ago that would never happen.

    huge boquets

  7. Christina Penner says

    None of our photos of average people will matter in 100 years bc there are so many pics of people taking photos of every second of their life. Just a thought.

    I just wonder how many of those giant bouquets were for hiding the reason for a wedding ? I do genealogy. I have read way too much . LOL !

  10. About Me says

    women were ugly

  11. Jennifer Kubik says

    Would loved to have lived in the 1920s. The 1900s were so different. I was born in 1978. Sighs.

  12. lori wise says

    Some are holding a Hedge..

  13. Irene Jansen says

    Only black people never got married. I only see white people

  14. Dominic Ausar says

    All I see is men standing next to other men….

  15. peace2014 says

    What strikes me is the large groups of people who appear to be family, friends etc. Today family doesn't seem to be as important. Society has become more fragmented.

  16. Fatblackchick Brown says

    1:35 only couple who look remotely interested in each other.

  17. alan spagnolia says

    These photos may be very nice, however MY Grandparents (bridal attendees) from 1925 have them ALL beat !!! They were TOO gorgeous !!!! I can prove it, too !

  18. Tasha Ms SweetTea S. says

    love the head dressingss,huge bouquets and garden wedding venues, very elegant and timeless

  19. Wendy Rupp says

    Didn't they know how to cut flowers back then?

  20. Susan Kerr says

    Many of those women would have had deformed feet from being crushed into those pointed shoes that have little relation to normal anatomy. It was seen as aristocratic to have narrow feet. Just sickening.

  21. MJ says

    The hats and veils are so simple but beautiful.

  22. Lisa Bunnie says

    I was born way too late . Absolutely lovely!

  23. Jane Evans says

    This is amazing, I loved watching this. Beautiful dresses and bouquets. They didn't smile much though did they!

  24. Sergio Brunati says

    Loved these pictures! Thanks!!!

  25. S Bsims says

    Nothing but white people…
    No, culture???

  26. A b1986 says

    Assuming most of them where born in the late 1890s and early 1900s its sad that they are probably all dead by now.

  27. Doris Rosa says

    I to a antique store where they had beautiful elegant wedding albums in black and white from back in the days and they were actually for sale. Albums of many pictures look this so beautiful all black and white just beautiful. they closed the antique store they moved out of town if not I would have continued going there buying stuff, they really did had beautiful thing from back in the days.

  28. Natalia Wilgosz says

    Pieknie,pieknie!!!!!! Cudnie, cudnie!!!!!!

  30. Believe Me says

    Not fair to make me teary-eyed ….

  31. Joan Savage says

    Thank you for sharing these stunning photos. How times have changed.

  32. Puglet Mommy says

    I always wonder how many of those families would not like their family pictures being out in public. Photo albums sold at quick sales and markets, or by relatives out to make a buck, or an estate sale. Some have even won contests for pix which were saved from trash, not meant for divers to unearth. Respect needed for the dead? Who can say.

  33. L Lance says

    Many people were still virgins on their wedding day back then.

  34. Marcia Zappile says

    Que lindas…os buquês são enormes…

  35. Ilone Clezar says

    As noivas se escondiam atrás de seus enormes buquês!

  36. mitzi spicer gilliam says

    some of those gals look old!

  37. Karen Murphy says

    How beautifully romantic!! I guess the reason why they were not smiling was because they had nothing to smile about.

  38. Suzi Lindblad says

    This was the era my grandparents married. In reality, it really wasn't that long ago.

  39. Cheryl Oldford says

    Awww. The fashions back then, also little moneybut hard working men, massive boquets made up of Ferns and Foliage with around 12 Flowers, very grand they felt back then.
