If you've spent most of your childhood poring through old family photos, you'll know that one of the best parts is checking out all the wedding gowns your relatives donned throughout the decades. Your grandma probably rocked white-gloved '50s finery and your favorite aunt a rad, hippie-inspired crochet lace number in the swinging '70s. And your mom! How could anyone not gawk at that '80s ivory bouffant made with layers and layers of taffeta?
Here, check out a century's worth of bridal dresses...and maybe glean some retro-flavored inspo for your own walk down the aisle.
