Something Old ~ The Dress
The first wearer of the dress was Allison's paternal great-great-grandmother, Nellie Campbell,when she married A.G. Shellito in 1884 in Iowa.
The next outing was when Jean Lawman married Nellie's grandson, John Shellito in Iowa on December 26th 1941.
Allisons aunt Barbara Shellito of Boston also wore it, when she wed Jean's son Paul on July 12th 1975 in Wichita, Kansas.
Then Allison’s mum Mimi Balazs Shellito wore it when she got married in 1982 to Jack, now 58.
Allison would love it if when she has a daughter that her daughter would wear it when she marries. For that reason and with the dress being of such sentimental value, for the reception, Allison changed into another dress.
