Bride wears grandma’s wedding dress from 1961 down the aisle – that she stored in a garbage bag

A lot of girls find themselves dreaming of their wedding day. And one of the most important things they think about is their wedding dress. For most women, they usually have a very specific idea of what they want to wear.

And this bride knew exactly what she wanted to wear as well…

Allie Livingwater took to Facebook to talk about her wedding and the significance of her dress. She posted a side-by-side of her grandmother and herself in the dress, to show everyone what it looked like.

She mentioned how her wedding would be an event that she would remember for the rest of her life because of how special it was.

Allie has a very special bond with her grandma as she had lived with her since she was born. The family moved in with Allie’s grandmother after she became widowed after 38 years of marriage. And while Allie had never even met her grandfather, she felt closer to him wearing her grandmother’s wedding dress.

Allie’s grandmother was overcome with emotion because she never imagined her dress would be worn to another wedding, let alone her granddaughters. She had written it off, thinking it would never be of any use again.

What a beautiful story and what a tender moment shared between grandmother and granddaughter. I hope everyone has a relationship like this with their grandparent.
