Fashions change and, in some cases, return. Just think of certain brands or the style of certain dresses and trousers that, over the years, have been re-proposed in a revisited form. The same goes for wedding dresses, which have inevitably taken on different shapes over time, thanks to the innovative creativity of designers who have had to adapt to the different demands of modern clients.

This is the OldSchoolCool group who reveals it to us, thanks to the photos that Internet users have shared of their grandparents, uncles and parents on their special day a real debauchery of class and elegance. Let’s see 15.
