Everyone Has Their Own Idea Of A Dream Wedding
If you took a survey of every married couple you know, each of them would have a different idea of the perfect wedding. Some like traditional while others do their own thing. Of course, there are so many different options in between.
My wife and I personally did the get married in Vegas thing. Then we had a party with family and friends when we got back. We loved it but that way isn't for everyone.
Famous Wedding Saying And Tradition
There is a long time wedding saying and tradition. On their special day, the bride needs "something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue" for a good wedding. Many women make sure they have all of it before they walk down the aisle. This family takes the "something borrowed" part to the next level.
Illinois Family Has A Special Wedding Tradition For The Brides
Eight brides in one family have worn a Marshall Field’s wedding gown purchased in 1950: ‘it’s a lucky dress’
In 1950, the late grandmother of the family bought the dress for $100.75 from Marshall Field's. Since then seven more brides have worn the gown including a great aunt, aunt, and cousins. The most recent addition just happened over the weekend.
It didn't start out as a tradition. Bride numbers two and three used it because they could. Probably to save a little money. After that, the next engaged woman wanted to wear it to keep the streak going. Now, it's a big part of their family history. Of course, the dress has been adjusted through the years but it still remains in its original design.
