So today is the day that I need to make my dress decision! I think I am going to wear the family wedding dress, but I want to get some input! The dress was worn in 1954 by my grandmother, and in the 80’s by both my mom and aunt. What do you think?

Are there pictures? Do you feel comfortable wearing the dress and if not, do you have a dress budget prepared just in case?

If you want to wear the dress, if that’s the dress you want, not your mom or your grandmother or your aunt, then go with the dress.
I think it’s a lovely sentiment to wear a family wedding dress. However it’s got to be what you want to get married in, not what other people want.

That’s such a sweet, pretty and eternally romantic dress! If you also like it, I say go for it! It’s got such lovely sentiment behind it as well.

it’s a very pretty dress!!! you could make it your own with a ribbon or sash if you wanted to… but i think it’s fine all on its own and the fact that it has so much history is so friggin awesome!!

That is a very nice dress. I love the first picture where you get to see the back and you look happy in it. I think if you like the dress go for it! But if it is more THEIR dream for you to wear the dress then go with your heart.
If you don’t like the dress maybe you could get pieces of it added to another dress of use the veil from that one? But I think it is a lovely dress as it is.

Wow its a beautiful dress! You look so happy (and coincidentally… you look a lot like the beautiful Rachel McAdams)!
I say wear whatever makes your heart feel best. You could go try on some dresses and see if you like those, but if you keep thinking of the dress from your family, it’s probably the one!

i think it’s a truly fabulous dress… .and you’re really lucky your heirloom dress is so classic and chic! you might look at 1950s brides for inspiration of how to accessorize it. grace kelly marrying prince rainier comes to mind! (like, a bolero could give you a similar look.)
