I’m thinking of taking a piece of lace from my mom’s dress and FMIL’s dress and having in sewn into the underside of my dress for my something old. Future Mother-In-Law had offered it and when I found out my mom still had hers I wanted to do it.

I am using my mom’s dress waist down as my underlayer to a dress I am having made. Her dress was satin, so that will be the underlayer and we are adding lace to the top of it and straps. I am so thrilled to be using my mom’s dress since she has passed when I was younger. Absolutely no one has seen my dress yet, so it will be a huge surprise on my wedding day! Also, my seamtress suggested saving the other peices of my mom’s dress (long lace sleeves and buttons) to make a baptism/dedication dress if I should have a daughter.

I’m using the lace from my mom’s dress as the wrap for my bouquet. I also made 2 small pillows covered in the lace for our ring bearers.

I’m incorporating the colour of her dress. Hers was dark blue and so is mine.

Also, we both chose vintage-inspired. She wore an 1900s-inspired dress in 1973 and I’ll be wearing an 1930s-inspired dress in 2013.
