Keep Good Going with New York Life

While we do love untraditional weddings here at Ruffled, we also adore weddings filled with personal touches in the form of family heirlooms or traditions, which is why we are smitten with New York Life‘s video below which showcased 3 generations of women, wearing the same beautiful gown who got married on the same day of the year! What a lovely way to honor to the women who’ve raised and loved you. Are there any particular family traditions or heirloom details you are including in your wedding? Even if you don’t wear the same exact gown, we love when brides incorporate a piece of their mother’s or grandmother’s wedding dress into some aspect of the day and we’ve come up with a list of 5 ways to incorporate family history into your wedding day.
