love the redo on the dress!

one of my hubbys cousins married an american girl so she got to wear her mums wedding dress twice. one for the US wedding and then the aussie wedding – i remember her saying how special she felt being able to wear it not once but a second time

I think it’s a sweet idea, but I’m not planning on my daughter wanting to wear it. I am not buying it with that in mind, at least.

That’s a great redo.

my great grandmother made my grandmother’s wedding dress and my mom wore it 33 years later!

I tried it on, but it just didn’t work for me and I wasn’t ready to alter it like that bride did (although it turned out beautifully!)

Mine was custom made and I would LOVE it if my daughters wanted to wear it…although I’m really tempted to have a TTD session, or make the dress into christening gowns, so I have no idea what do at this point!

Wow! what a great transformation!

I had a friend to similar transformation… which makes me think i’d like to keep mine to give her the option. but then again, i wouldnt have transformed my moms… so why do I think my kid will want to?

That’s very cool!  I don’t plan on saving my dress for my daughter, but I might save it for myself if I can dye it a purty color after the wedding!

Unfortunately not as she died several years ago and I am too old for more kids. Here is her graduation pic, she would have made a gorgeous bride. [attachment=283238,33617]

I tried on my mom’s wedding dress when I was like 14.  It was very obvious that even then, my chest was wayyy too big for it!

We were going to try and “update” my flower girl dress (from when I was 7) for my flower girl to wear, but she’s only going to be 4.5 years old and it will be way too big.

My sister and I have both worn my aunt’s first communion dress and I plan on my (future) daughter wearing it as well.

I think I’ll save my dress, but I’m under no illusion that anyone would want to do anything with it in the future.

But I can say that right now, it is completely filthy over the foot of cloth closest to the ground.  I figured you wear this thing once, so I wore the heck out of it!

I’m not wearing my mom’s gown – it doesn’t fit AT ALL! –  but I’m going to be making a veil out of the material from her gown!

Wow! Impressive. I’m not sure if I’ll save my dress… I wasn’t planning on it… but then I bought it and now don’t want to give it up after the wedding!!

I hope so but I’m not holding by breath.  I did have it cleaned and heirloomed though so the possibility remains.  I’ve been trying to figure out if there is a way I can get more use out of it though and my boudoir photographer mentioned she has done some really artsy type of photos for some clients after they have a baby: photos with the baby while wearing the wedding gown.  I like the concept and may look into it again if i think I can get the dress back on a few months after having a kid.

I am not wearing my mom’s dress and we’re not even sure we want to have children. But, you never know!
