Q: I'm not wearing my mother's wedding dress, but I would still like to include it in my wedding somehow. What are some creative ways to use it?
A: There are so many ways to incorporate your mother's wedding dress beyond wearing the gown yourself. If you want to bring an element of her dress into your day-of attire, consider having a hairpiece or veil made from the lace or tulle from her dress, or sew a piece of her gown into part of your dress. Another way to go is to weave her dress into your decor. You could do it by taking fabric from her gown and using it to wrap your bouquet.
Or use part of the dress to decorate a ceremony arch or huppah.
