Abigail Kingston has continued a long standing family tradition that has seen a wedding dress remain in her family for 120 years. As the 11th wearer of the dress, Abigail still managed to knock it out of the park wearing a family heirloom. The tradition was started by Mary Lowry Warren all the way back in 1895! Abigail’s mother was the most recent bride, having adorned the dress back 1991. IT hasn’t been plain sailing for this age old dress, which is not surprising consider it is over a century old! It had its fair share of wear and tear, with numerous holes and tips not to mention that fact it had discoloured over the years. After 200 hours, the dress was restored to a wearable condition, yet could still only be worn for a short time. Abigail saved it for cocktail hour at her wedding, managing to continue the tradition despite the fragility of the dress.
