My mother’s dress also happened to be my late grandmother’s dress that was made by my great grandmother. So I def wanted to incorporate some of her dress with me on my wedding day. Going through old things we actually found scrapes left over from the dress when it was being made! So I took some of the lace and wrapped it around my bouquet. I loved it. We also had the ring bearer pillow made out of the satin from her dress as well (it was the same pillow my parents used for their wedding). I loved the connection!

My parent’s pillow made from parts of my grandmother’s dress…flip it over and it has become ours!

One Bee had her mother’s dress redesigned (removed the sleeves etc) and surprised her Mom by wearing it to the rehearsal dinner.

You could also use the skirt to make a tablecloth for your cake table.

@julies1949:  I was just about to suggest this! I almost did this for my own wedding because my mom’s dress was very simple and it was short- it would’ve been perfect for the rehearsal. Unfortunately, it hadn’t been preserved and it had yellowed over the years.

I also like Hippos suggestion of using the material for the ringbearer pillow!

I’m planning on using part of my mom’s dress for my bouquet wrap. I like the ring bearer pillow idea, too!
