    Those are beautiful! I am wearing my mothers dress, and had it altered to fit me as well as changed to be more my style. It can be done! And it looks like you have some gorgeous options to choose from.

    I absolutely love your maternal grandmother’s dress! 

    If you like it maybe you can use your mom’s dress to make a base for a dress (like the strapless knee-length dress under your grandmother’s)… and then lace from the other dresses to make the overlay?

    What about having a seamstress make a new dress that is an homage to the elements you like best about the dresses?  (My favorite dress is your maternal grandmother’s!)

    I like your paternal grandmother’s dress, but would be reluctant to cut it up as it is so pretty! Maybe use your Mum’s dress as that fits you best, and go from there?

    Could you wear your maternal grandmother’s dress as a rehersal dinner or reception dress, and then take pieces from the other dresses and add them to your veil or bouquet?
