Menbur has some nice “vintagey” looking wedding flats, but not sure any of them are “right” for this dress – but will post them anyway, can be found at http://www.endless.com:

Then there is this one by Seychelles, also on http://www.endless.com that would be beautiful with that style of dress:

These are cute, by “Modern Vintage” and also can be found on http://www.endless.com:

i think its beautiful! i love when dresses can be shared.  though I wouldnt be caught dead in my mothers wedding dress…but it was the 70’s. her veil is ridiculous and she made it herself. cracks me up.

@totheislnds: careful on the cracks about the 70’s some of us had our first wedding then– on the beach, barefoot, in quianna– quick youngsters- go look up that fabric- I think the EPA banned it- as carcinogenic- or just in bad taste;)

PS- I know you want to wear flats, but heels would look amazing!  Darling Husband is shorter than I… I just rock it anyhow.

i would wear it for the reception, and choose a new dress for yourself for the ceremony.

it’s very sweet. if you won’t wear heels though, would you consider shortening the hem? the length just overpowers and makes you look very, very short.

I agree with kitzy. If you aren’t going to wear heels then I would definitely shorten it a bit. It’s a great dress though and a wonderful tradition!

honestly i like the shoes and the length of it on you (ankle length?) i think if you added a crinoline it would bring it up just enough that it would be the perfect length and add some playfulness – maybe try one on under it and see how you like it!

I LOVE the dress! And how cool is it that you can wear the same dress that your mother and grandmother wore?! I agree with a couple of other posters, though about wearing a crinoline underneath it and/or shortening it just a tad. I also think that the shoes aren’t my favorite…they’re a bit dark. I hear ya on wanting to wear flats, but I think you can find some dyeable satin flats that would work better.

I love it!  Tea length dresses are really in style right now too.  I’d add a crinoline under it to give it more poof.  I think the skirt would look more like this if you added the crinoline.
