Family Heirloom Christening Gown Renewed

A Family Heirloom StoryBy Carol Kidney This christening gown was made by my Mom, a talented seamstress, for her first-born child in 1956. There was also a blanket that was a gift from my Aunt. The robes were worn by my sister and me. These items were carefully stored until 1977 when they were worn by my brother’s first born son and all my mom and dad’s grandchildren. They were last worn by their youngest grandchild in 1994. The family welcomed the next generation of our family in 2018. Sadly my Mom passed away in 2018...

But, you may really enjoy some outdoor photos, even in winter so warm winter wedding dresses are something you should consider. My daughter was married in December 2016 a day after a terrible snowstorm. It was sooo cold outside (about 9 degrees), but...

Mother’s Wedding Dress Restoration Amazing

A Wedding Dress Story By Tracy Hulett After my mom passed we had to sell her house and found her wedding dress stuffed in a plastic bag in the original box. It smelled of ammonia. We knew that her mother, Bessie Ross Shriver had made the gown for her and so we wanted to preserve it. My mother had such a small waist when she was married that none of her daughters could fit into her wedding gown. We joke that one of her grandsons will have to marry a girl with a tiny waist. It’s such a beautiful gown we hope that someone down...

Wedding Gown Restyled for 25 year Anniversary

A Wedding Dress Story By Robin Svendsen This is the original wedding dress that I purchased back in 1993. I am the only one that has worn it. My sleeves were really puffy back in the 90’s which was the style, so I had them altered this year for my 25 year anniversary which I surprised my husband when I wore my dress again 25 years later down the aisle for a vow renewal. He got very emotional. Everything was original except for the sleeves. I purchased this dress in Chicago on a whim, I was on vacation and decided to peek in the bride...

Mother’s Wedding Dress Inspires Meredith

A Wedding Dress Story By Meredith Whittaker I am so grateful for an opportunity to talk about my Mom’s wedding gown. We were extremely close, and she passed suddenly from a heart attack in 2015. Planning my wedding without her was very emotional, and I tried to incorporate as much of her as I could into the day. My Mom’s name when she got married was Susan Rose Tranchetti (changed to Susan T. Wright upon marriage). She was only 22 when she got married to her high school sweetheart (my Dad). The gown was purchased at Vera Plumb...
