My neice is wearing my Mother’s dress, her grandmother’s dress. My sisters and I all wore the same dress, just changing the sleeves and neckline a little to meet the season of the wedding date. Each veil was different. With the receptions as involved as they are now, you could wear the dress for the ceremony, then choose a special dress for your reception. Frees you up for more modern dancing!!!! Then you have the best of both worlds. But above all wear the family wedding dress. Best Wishes for a great day!
