I'm fortunate enough to have my grandmother's wedding dress. She was married in October of 1909, she met her future husband on a train, traveling from her home in Minnesota to visit a cousin in Portland.

I'm sure she and her mother, and probably cousins and friends too, helped sew every tuck and seam. Isn't it wonderful?

    It certainly is, stef. What an precious keepsake! Your grandmother was beautiful, her husband handsome and they were blessed with a grand daughter that appreciates not only her wedding gown, but realizes what a labor of love it was to create that gown. There are many that would never have thought about that! Thanks for sharing the gown, photo and story. :-)
