For her recent nuptials, a U.K. woman named Charlotte Middleton wore a wedding dress that had been in her family for 97 years — and she was the sixth bride to wear it! The embroidered silk dress encrusted with pearls was made in Hong Kong and first worn by Charlotte's great-grandmother Pauline in 1910. Charlotte's mother Lucy wore the dress in 1975. We're not so jaded that we don't recognize this as awesome. Although rather privileged. If your great-grandmothers were slaves, for instance, like some of ours were, you don't have these kinds of stories. But congrats to Charlotte! [Telegraph]
