I think it is beautiful.  Reminds me of a very elegant tea party! 🙂 Rock it with some fabulous heels!

way cool! Love the dress, and yes, I don’t think you look “out of place” in it – it seems to suit you just fine! Very cool!

That is so beautiful.  How special it is to have a gown worn by your mother and grandmother!

That looks gorgeous! I love the bouquet, but think that you could find a pair of shoes that is vintagey that may match the feel of the dress a little better? So cool!

I like it! If it were me, I would add a slip to make it a little poofy, just to make it your own a little bit. Very nice!

It’s beautiful, I used the lace from the dress my grandmother and mother wore on their wedding days, there was no way I would fit into the actual dress.  Lucky you to get to carry on such a lovely dress tradition.

What an awesome tradition! Since you’re planning to do flats, I’d try to do like 7SevenJ9 and find some vintage or vintage style shoes. Maybe for photos/the day of you can wear a sweet vintage cardigan so that some of your photos are more ‘you’ while others focus on the dress (bonus if you can find photos of your mom/gma in it that are a similar pose and try to recreate it). I think you look great in that dress, and the sentiment is just going to make your day even more memorable.

I love it! I wore my mom’s dress and I’m so glad I did. Unfortunately, for me, my mom still wishes I didn’t wear it.

Love the meaning of the dress and the dress itself! Looks like you got yourself a wedding dress! : )
