FAMILY TRADITION

“I always knew I wanted to wear the dress; I even tried it on when I was a little girl,” Rinaldi tells the Daily Mirror. “Not only did I think it was ­beautiful, I loved the sense of ­history which came along with it and I am such a family kind of girl that ­it meant a lot for me to carry on ­the tradition.”

“I always knew I wanted to wear the dress; I even tried it on when I was a little girl,” says Rinaldi.

Talk about heirloom fashion! We hope more brides adopt this trend of wearing their mothers’, grandmothers’ or even great-grandmothers’ gowns. “I would love nothing more than to have a daughter who will want to wear the dress,” Rinaldi adds. “It’s just got such ­sentimental value now for all of us.”
