Before You Wear Your Mothers Wedding Gown
Before You Wear Your Mothers Wedding Gown

The culture of passing a wedding gown from mother to daughter has always been a part of the world, and some consider this the best way to honour their parents while others feel it’s necessary because they want their marriage to be like those of their parents (long, beautiful and blessed). This is a beautiful culture in general but there are things you should consider before deciding to wear your grandmother’s wedding gown.

Is it still relevant?

Your mother’s dress was very beautiful in 1976, but this is 2012 it might not be so beautiful today, styles have evolved a lot since 1976, you need to face the facts and make an informed choice.  Surely you don’t want to look like a vintage bride.

Is it your style?

Your big day is all about you not your mother, the dress should say more about you and less about your mother; imagine you wearing a heavy wedding gown with 3 layers of fabric in every feel that cannot possibly describe a young 20’something bride in 2012.

Last but not least the old might be just too old and lost it's original colour, you don’t want to wear a semi-white dress that is 3 times bigger than your actual size, that will look ridiculously awful on you, truth be told some dresses can’t be re-tailored.

As much as you love your mother you must also bear in mind these factors, and decided to kick your mother’s dress to the curb. Buy a new dress that is more you.

But if you are a pro mother dress then make sure you get a great designer who will understand your vision of what you want the dress to be like, discuss details with her on how you can make a dress out of your mother’s old dress.

Best of luck
