My great-grandparents, John and Claire, were married in the early 1940s and stayed together until his death three years ago. Since then, my mom and her cousin both wore Nana's dress in their own weddings and it's as beautiful today as it was then.
LOLDuffer says: "My parents in the living room of the pastor who married them. They eloped to Longview, WA in 1961. My Grandmother made the dress, and I plan to wear it for my 25th wedding anniversary in two years."
