A bride's most important decision, and what most wedding guests look forward to besides the reception, is what will she wear for her big day. The wedding dress is the greatest fashion moment a woman will experience, a choice that people will admire and ogle over while she’s walking down the aisle. It’s also why shows like, Say Yes To The Dress, are so popular – at least for me! It’s definitely my guilty pleasure.

Short sleeve, long sleeve, white, ivory, trimmed with lace or chiffon, mermaid or A-line silhouette, the choices are endless and bridal fashion has changed so much over the years. Many looks are now quite modern as wedding dress designers have taken inspiration from today's fashion runway looks. Though some women are looking to the past for their bridal inspiration. In particular, going back to their own mother's wedding dress to wear or use for accessories.

And as these stunning brides will show you, wearing a wedding dress with such a strong significance is also very special. With some alterations and tailoring or just wearing it as it was originally, these vintage to modern bridal looks are gorgeous.

With some alterations this dress was a stunner.

The details on the dress were already amazing and with some tweaks, this dress became an incredibly unique look.

This bride styled her mothers dress so that it fit her personality.

This bride recreated her moms dress into a two-piece that accentuates her incredibly fit body.

It's such a fun way to honor your history while also making it your own.

Shopping for a wedding dress can be quite stressful and anxiety-inducing.

This bride also dreamed of wearing her mom's dress since she was a little girl.

What better way to look for inspiration for your wedding dress than to be inspired by your mom's wedding dress?

I preserved my wedding dress with the idea that one day one of my three daughters may want to alter it or wear it for their own wedding dress. Though since it is three of them, we may have to come up with ideas on how to involve it for all three of them.

For this bride, not only was it her goal to wear her mom's wedding dress but also a fitness achievement.

The puffy shoulders are not the trend for wedding dresses today but it sure is fun looking at them.

I think with some alterations this dress could also be fabulous.

It's quite incredible how altering a dress from the 80s can make the look a modern-day bride.

The dresses of the 80s were showstoppers in that there was a lot of dress. This makes it less difficult to alter since there is so much fabric already. Probably the only time a bride that's altering a wedding dress will thank puffy shoulders.

Maybe your grandma still has her dress too.

This look is so incredible that it can totally fit into todays wedding fashion.

I love this look, it's adorable.

Perhaps some brides don't plan to wear their moms wedding dress, but they sure did get inspired by them.

There is no better way to get excited for your wedding. Well, maybe the bachelorette parties, but the dress is the showstopper.

Some ladies put on their mothers dresses for fun and to get into the wedding day mood.

Definitely twirl in your potential wedding dress to get a feel for it before you hit the dance floor with it on.

I cannot wait until my daughters are old enough to try on my wedding dress.

There are alternative ways to use a vintage wedding gown that are a very creative for including "something old" into your wedding.

Because I have three daughters, my dress may have to be used in different ways for all three of my girls. This is giving me some ideas and what we can do.

The lace from this dress is being used for the flower girls dress.

Here's the something blue.

This bride used some of the details from her moms wedding dress for her bridal accessories.

We can't forget the accessories that will complete the head-to-toe look.

Any excess fabric leftover from your moms wedding dress can be used for a ring pillow.

Absolutely no fabric should be left behind.

I cannot wait to see how this year's brides style themselves with their mom's dress as we approach wedding season.

And like every wedding guest out there, I am here for the brides dress and cannot wait to see her fashionable look.
