Eight brides in one family wore wedding dresses purchased in 1950 | News

CHICAGO — When Serena Stoneberg walked down the aisle at a North Side church this month, her wedding continued a family tradition that spanned seven previous brides across three generations and several Chicago neighborhoods and suburbs.

Stoneberg became the eighth bride to say her vows in a satin gown previously worn on their wedding days by her grandmother, aunt, uncle and cousins. Her late grandmother purchased it for $100.75 from the Bridal Room at the former Marshall Field’s on State Street and was the first bride to wear it in 1950.
