    I, too, would love to know "the rest of the story" of the other brides who wore this gown – albeit I did read that "Before the dress was given to the NHA in 1987, it was altered and worn by four other young women in the family."

    A newspaper(2) account of the dress:
    " 'Sconset was the scene of a pretty wedding last Saturday morning at 'The Hedges', the summer home of Mr. and Mrs. Horace G. Preston. Miss Preston's dress of "ivory satin and chiffon, trimmed with rose point lace" was custom-made at Bonwit Teller and the veil was brought from Italy."
    It was interesting to learn that white wedding gowns were not the standard until the late nineteenth century.

    This is my husband's Grandmother. I guess his cousin wore this dress at her wedding.

    @ sewcrazzd – That's terrific!

    What can you, or he, tell us about her life? Or the many other family members who wore this gown?

    She passed away when my husband was young. I want to say around 12....I'll find out more later. His mother, youngest of three daughters of pictured, did not wear the dress herself.

    My avatar is one of her great grandsons. Actually I think the youngest (so far).
