MUSKEGON, Mich. — A West Michigan woman has strolled down the aisle in her wedding dress for a second time. The first time came 73 years ago.

Agnes Anderson wore the dress in 1938 when she married her college sweetheart, Delmar Anderson, in Youngstown, Ohio. The Andersons’ marriage lasted more than 50 years until Delmar’s death in 1989.

Her second trip down the aisle came last week at a vintage bridal gown fashion show at a church in Muskegon.

The 98-year-old from Muskegon County’s Laketon Township says the dress was in mint condition when she retrieved it from a storage box.

Dick Anderson escorted his mother into the church sanctuary and to the altar.

The Muskegon Chronicle says the fashion show featured 20 bridal gowns that dated from 1933 to 2006.
