Classic

... And later in the night, the bride changed into her mothers wedding gown, which was hand sewn by her great-grandmother.
I have this hope that my dress will be pulled from the attic one day and my daughter or grand-daughter will ask me if she can wear it on her wedding day.

Jane - I'm so glad that we see eye to eye. I don't think I even asked my mom about her dress. She wore her aunts dress in which she was the flower girl. I'm not sure if she still has it. My mom isn't one for keeping things like that, although she may surprise me.
