Thank you, I didn't expect to want a big fluffy dress but I fell in love with it and it fit perfectly. I spent a whopping $25 on alterations to have most of the crinoline taken out and that was it!
My engagement ring was also my grandmothers. The ring was beautiful but couldn't be sized to fit my ginormous fingers (she was also teeny-tiny) so my hubby had to reset the stones. You should have your wedding date engraved next to theirs, if there is room. What an awesome family heirloom!
