Brides Are Upcycling Their Mom's Vintage Wedding Dresses For A New Family Tradition

Finding the right wedding dress that fits your style and personality is a tall order. I should know because I've tried about 21 dresses before I found the one.

But if you're lucky enough to have your mom's old wedding dress that's extra special. Some brides opt to wear their mom's wedding dress as is or alter it to look completely different and new. Here are just a few gorgeous options.

1. This Updated Version

Oh wow, I wouldn't have guessed that this was the same dress. This looks so much different yet has that special connection to her mom's dress.
