@Mrs Christopher:  seriously, I LOVE IT! I, too, am wearing a full sleeved gown.  What a beautiful dress!

My mom’s dress to my dad was tossed out during the divorce, and the dress she wore to marry my stepfather (who’s been pretty much the only dad I’ve ever had) was unfortunately quite hideous.

But I did want to comment and say that this dress is amazing! I really like the detailing on it. You don’t see that a whole lot any more. Is it possible that you can take the edging or something from your mom’s veil and attach it to a new veil?

Very pretty!  I think it’s amazing to get to wear a family dress in your wedding!

I love vintage dresses that are special to the family!  That dress looks timeless!  So pretty!

Out of curiosity, what’s the veil look like?

I’m a veil vendor on etsy and I recently created a brand new veil using the lace appliques that was on the MOB’s wedding dress. The original veil sort of crumbled in our hands when it was taken out of the box it had been stored in and the dress was very discolored and could not be salvaged but some of the lace appliques were still in very good shape. Maybe you could do the same thing – take the lace appliques off the original veil and put it on a brand new veil? By the looks of the picture you posted – I think it would be farily easy for your seamstress to do.
