Anyone wear their mother’s dress? I was watching that show on TLC – Something Borrowed, Something New – and I got to thinking – maybe I should see what my mother’s dress is like. I’m curious – have any of you bees taken your mother’s dress and “revamped” it to fit your style? If so, post pictures of before and after. Or, even if you just wore it as is – I think it’d be interested to see you in the dress and your mother in the dress.

There was a post a while ago where a Bee altered her mother’s dress to wear at the rehearsal as a surprise.

I don’t think my mom would have been happy to give away her dress! She bought my dress as a gift, so I’ll have a dress I’ll love 25 years into my marriage (like she still loves her dress 25 years into hers)!

- Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada ♥ EDD- April 2016
I had always dreamed of wearing my mom’s dress. I tried it on once we first got engaged and it was too small for me. I’m a different shape than she was back then and I don’t think it would be flattering even if we altered it 🙁 It’s a gorgeous dress though and she paid a lot for it. I would feel terrible cutting it up too. She offered it as soon as we got engaged and even though she’s looking forward to dress shopping, I know she would have loved to see me in her dress. Sometimes I put it on with the veil just for fun to show her (:
