Many of the girls out there may have experienced the offering given by their moms about wearing the family's traditional gown on their wedding day. However, only a few of them might have taken or opted their mom's offer. And still, if they choose to wear the dress they are probably the last generation to wear it.

She was the first woman in the family to wear the dress. The dress included puffy sleeves and full skirt. Mary's waist was just 18 inches at the time and she wore it 120 years ago.
She was the woman who actually passed the trend to other women of the family. This bride wore the dress around 50 years later as she got married in 1946.
Virginia took over the dress 2 years later and as the first bride's waist was unbelievably small so small changes and tailoring was done to make it fit.
Laird wore the gown on her big day just 16 years later in 1976. The look of the dress was intact and was still looking good for the time.
Leslie wore this dress in 1977 and the first time she saw this dress was at Bride 4 Sara's wedding and she was only five that time. She even appears to be the mother of the recent bride.
Janet got married in 1982 and obviously the next one to wear the family's wedding dress.
She wore it in 1986 and broke the tradition by getting colored photographs of herself with the gown on the wedding day.
In 1989, Virginia wore the gown and the puffy sleeves were still in fashion till '80s.
In 1991, Ann Ogden wore the dress on her wedding in 1991. She carried an elegant style that fit into the 1970s much better.
In October 2015, after 120 years and 24 years following the last bride, Abigail wore the dress on her wedding day.
