My mom offered me her dress, but it doesn’t fit me, and I really don’t like the style.  Instead, I’m going to wear her veil, and then I’m going to cut up pieces of the lace to make my shoes (these are my inspiration).  I might also add some to my bouquet or something like that.

I like the idea of you sewing some of the dress inside. That way you’re  *sort of* wearing the dress, while having her near you, but you get to wear the dress that you want.

I also like the idea of sewing some of the dress inside to yours, for the same reasons napabridekelsey mentioned. That way you can just remove some of the fabric and keep the original dress. If you were to wrap the flowers in material from the dress, you would have to remove larger sections of the fabric. This way you get the best of both worlds. What a sweet way to honor your mom.
