This Daughter, Mother and Grandmother All Get Married On The Same Date In The Same Dress As A Family Tradition

This is the story of a woman called Sarah who was soon to be married to her beloved, Jonathan. Like most girls, Sarah was very close to her mother and also her grandmother, so much so that Jonathan would often point out how similar the three of them are.

When Sarah and Jonathan became engaged to be married, Sarah decided she wanted to pay a beautiful tribute to her mom and grandmother.

She knew that her mom had got married on the same date as her grandmother and even wore the same dress. Sarah wanted to carry on the tradition.

After Sarah’s mom had worn her own mothers dress on her wedding, she had kept it in pristine condition ready to hand down to her own daughter one day.

Although Sarah was not obligated to wear the dress, she very much wanted to keep the tradition alive as a mark of respect to the family tradition.

Sarah recalls:

“She brought it down for me to look at, with no obligation to wear it if I didn’t want to. As soon as I put it on and held the veil onto the back of my head, I knew that I wouldn’t be trying on any other dresses. It fit perfectly, and Mum looked so happy when she saw me in it. I was sure the dress would bring me a lifelong and happy marriage, like my grandmother and my mother before me.”

Sarah was delighted the lace dress she inherited is back in fashion since the Duchess of Cambridge wore one to marry Prince William, right

In another remarkable family tradition, their wedding day fell on June 9 – the exact date her parents and grandparents had married.

Sarah explains: ‘We were already looking at June for a wedding date anyway when mum rang and said ‘just see what day June the 9th falls on.’ We found out it was Saturday and thought why not?’

Sarah’s mother had previously picked June 9 for her own wedding day as she thought it would be nice to share the date with her parents’ silver wedding anniversary.

‘When we were discussing the wedding in 1984, we had no special date in mind. We thought we’d make it a special double occasion. I hope that granddaughters will pick the same day and continue the tradition,’ she said.

Sarah also hopes if she has a daughter the tradition can be carried into a fourth generation.

She said: ‘I wouldn’t force my daughter to wear it, I would give her the choice. But it would be nice if she did.’
