When I was married, I used my paternal grandma's dress. She was married on May 19, 1952. That is exactly 60 years before me. I had not intended to pick the same day, that was just an accident! I loved my grandma's dress, but no one really knew where it was. One day I was in her garage and found a box that looked like it had wedding gown written on it. I climbed up on some not so sturdy makeshift ladder and opened the box to find the dress! It was in great condition, too. I had to get some alterations on it, but I was very lucky to have been able to find it and use it.
