PAWTUCKET—Every woman dreams of finding the perfect dress for her wedding day. For bride-to-be Beth Coakley, that means taking her turn in the same satin and lace gown that has been worn by seven other family members before her.
When Coakley, a school teacher in Beverly, Mass., marries Pawtucket native Bob Bedard this fall, she will be proudly outfitted in a family heirloom known as “the corn crop dress.” The gown was first worn by Coakley's great-aunt when she wed in 1949, and was passed down to a bride in every generation after that, from the 1950s to the 1990s.
