This Bride Will Be The 11th Person To Wear A 120-Year-Old Heirloom Wedding Dress

When Abigail Kingston walks down the aisle in October she will be wearing a 120-year-old silk-satin gown that hasn’t been worn since 1991.

Some may calls this vintage high fashion, but Kingston calls it an act of love. 

The dress was first worn by Kingston’s great-great grandmother, Mary Lowry Warren, in 1895 and has since been worn by 10 other brides. The Victorian gown has definitely gone through the ringer. 

Having been shipped to Kingston by a distant great aunt, the bride-to-be received the gown to find that it’s currently in a sorry state. The material was stained brown and there were holes all over it.

The sleeves have since been replaced and after 200 hours of repair work, the holes have been patched. 

The dress is still fragile though, so while Kingston will wear the gown on her wedding day, she will slip into it during the reception. 

For the bride-to-be’s mom, the choice to wear the Victorian-era gown isn’t just an outfit choice. “It’s not just the dress that’s been handed down,” Leslie Kingston told a local news site. “It’s the love.”

"We’re just really happy and blessed we can keep the tradition going," Leslie said.
