I think that is so lovely and special!! I also love the one PP listed above, it is stunning! 

Heres what I found at Nordstrom’s:

What a beautiful dress and what a stunning couple your grandparents were.  I think it’s lovely that you are wanting to link their wedding with your own in this way.  Could you also incorporate a small memento of them into your dress or bouquet on the day?

@Ciebtobe:  My bridesmaids tried this on as a potential dress. They’re both very thin. The dress is SO beautiful, but definitely clings to every indent or bump. They both loved it, but ultimately felt they would feel too self-conscious to wear it on the wedding day. 

Just a heads up to make sure to try it on or make sure it is returnable if ordering online.

That’s such a nice idea! They were such a cute couple (you inherited some nice genes)!

Do you live in an area with extremely cool august weather? Those dresses look beautiful but the satin and long sleeves will trap heat. For weather above 75 degrees, I would legitimately be concerned about you overheating during a backyard ceremony and reception. Are you open to an alternative with short sleeves or sleeveless?
