A wedding is a great time for families to come together. It makes sense, then, that for many brides an inherited wedding dress can be a beautiful thing. You’re wearing a dress steeped in family history down the aisle, all to start your own chapter in the story! However, not every bride-to-be will immediately fall in love with the wedding dress passed down from a previous generation; because fashion evolves and tastes differ, you may end up with a wedding dress you just don’t want to wear!
As your big day should be primarily about you and your partner, don’t feel pressured into wearing a dress you really don’t like just because it has sentimental value to your relatives. However, another solution that may keep everyone happy is to transform your inherited gown into something old and borrowed yet totally updated and new with wedding dress alterations.
