Happy couples in the 1970s were eager to share the news of their upcoming nuptials with family, friends, and neighbors. Typically during the seventies, engagements were announced in the local newspapers and bride and groom-to-be submitted a photograph of themselves to run next to the announcement. These 1970s engagement photos are a trip down memory lane.

Brides and Grooms-to-Be Rocked the '70s Styles

Of course, when a young couple had their pictures taken – often the first time they were professionally photographed together – they wanted to look their very best. After all, their engagement photos would be seen but hundreds of people, maybe more, when they were published in the community’s newspaper. So couples selected their nicest, newest outfits to wear and often coordinated their clothing. The result is a collection of photos that give us a great look at the fashions of the 1970s and how styles evolved over the decade. From leisure suits to miniskirts and peasant dresses to wide-lapel jackets, we can revisit it all thanks to seventies engagement photos.

The wedding photographers for these pics deserve a round of applause by the couples.
