Bride Surprises Mom In Repurposed 90s Wedding Dress

A bride-to-be gave left her mom in shock when she arrived to her rehearsal dinner in a repurposed version of her mother's 27-year-old wedding dress. Mom Jesika Hartwell has always talked about how much she loved the dress she wore for her big day – telling friends and family it was her "princess dress." Jesika's daughter Allyson and her then-fiancé, Joshua, have been together since they were 16, so the couple had heard Jesika speak about her beloved dress on many occasions. For that reason, Allyson, 23, knew she wanted to incorporate her mother's dress into her own celebrations in some way. Having sourced the dress from her grandma, who had kept the dress in a box for 27 years, Allyson, from Phoenix, New York, asked Joshua's aunt to repurpose it into a perfect rehearsal dinner dress. Then, on March 3, Jesika and family waited in the lobby of the Hilton Playa Del Carmen hotel, in Mexico, ahead of Allyson and Joshua's rehearsal dinner.
