This is what I did with my mother's old gown. I asked the florist to incorporate part of the lace of my mother's dress in to their bridal bouquet. The florist did an amazing job and it looked beautiful. I did this for all 3 of our daughters. My mother was passed away by the time our daughters got married, so this was a very special way to include her in the ceremony. I hope your daughter has a beautiful wedding and a happy marriage.
You can make a 'hanky' for each girl, with parts of the dress fabric, and the veil for a lace border. Part of each could be used on the ring bearer's pillow, if they are planning to use one.
Excellent idea fatboyslimsmom I was thinking the same thing. That dress is just going to waste away in the attic and end up being a tattered rag. The girls will have something to keep maybe hand down to their daughters when they get married.
