PAWTUCKET — Many readers enjoyed the story that appeared in the Times of bride-to-be Beth Coakley and her “corn crop dress.” The satin and lace bridal gown, first worn by Coakley’s great-aunt, Mary Gantz Bader, in 1949, had been passed down to a bride in every generation of her mother’s family after that, from the 1950s to the 1990s.

Coakley is happy to report that the heirloom dress officially stood the test of time at her Aug. 31 nuptials to Pawtucket native Robert M. Bedard on Cape Cod, and she provided The Times with wedding photos to prove it.
