Every bride has a few family traditions that she wants to bring to her wedding day.
Whether its having her dad walk her down the aisle, or getting hitched in a meaningful spot, these traditions mean a lot to the woman getting married.
Of course, most weddings are also designed with friends and family in mind. Lots of brides carry on rituals that honor family traditions on both sides of the aisle!
As we saw with this sweet bride who wore her grandmas dress for a vow renewal, simple gestures in honor of the past can be incredibly meaningful for family members.
While wearing a hand-me-down wedding dress from your mother or grandmother isnt a new idea, it is a beautiful, timeless touch for any bride on her wedding day.
It becomes something extra-special when its a dress thats been worn by the brides grandmother… and great-grandmother… and great-great-grandmother…
