An old English proverb says that the bride’s wedding day should wear “something old, something new, something borrowed and something sad”(something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue). And, apparently, in this respect, a bride named Abigail Kingston will match the old tradition of one hundred percent! This native of Pennsylvania became the 11th member of his family to the woman in the wedding day wearing a gorgeous vintage wedding dress handed down from generation to generation and which already has 120 years history.
The first bride, their in this outfit, was a distant relative Abigail, Mary Warren Lowry, who married in 1895. Last dress wore bride named Leslie Kingston, wedding which took place in 1991.
Unfortunately, time has not spared this outfit. When Abigail received the dress at its disposal, it had many small holes eaten by moths and time. Restorers took more than 200 hours to fix it and return in proper condition. However, after all, due to advanced age dresses, the most solemn day of your life, the bride only wore it for a few hours during the cocktail party.
I wonder what it’s like to wear a dress, which is more than 100 years?
I can’t believe it survived so well!
