Vintage Dress Tradition

I was so excited when I showed up at Rebecca and Matt's rehearsal and saw she was wearing her mother's wedding dress. It is such a cute dress and what a great tradition for a family to have. Rebecca is the youngest of six siblings and two of her sisters had also worn the dress to their rehearsals.

A few alterations needed to be done each time it was worn but her mom is a great seamstress so that was no problem. Her mother said that she assumed Rebecca would be the last to wear it when one of her granddaughters expressed interest it in...how great is that!?

Unfortunately, I didn't have my camera with me so here are a couple of shots her mother took during the rehearsal. I loved the details on the dress, the collar and buttons were adorable.
