SHE wanted a special outfit to wear during her wedding rehearsal.
So Lilli decided to turn to her mum, and asked if she could recycle her vintage dress in the lead up to her big day.
"I got to wear my mom’s wedding dress to my wedding rehearsal," Lilli wrote over a video of her mum doing the zip up on the dress.

She kept the oversized bow on the back though, and teamed the dress with some high bow-embellished heels.
